CONTRIBUTORS Brooklyn-based Michael Kaplan has written pieces for Details, Wired, Men’s Journal, Playboy, The New York Times and the New York Post, as well as four books. Kaplan—who resides in a 115-year-old house and has a longstanding interest in design and architecture—was honored to co-write the story on Zaha Hadid (page 34) for this issue. “Not only does she design some of the most striking buildings in the world, but she manages to do so in ways that no one could have anticipated,” he says. “The idea of putting up a luxury apartment building without any interior columns, as is the case with One Thousand Museum, blows my mind.” New York denizen Rachel Aydt, who wrote our Spotlight on Armani/Casa Miami (page 20), has been working in publishing for 20 years. She has been on staff as an editor and researcher at American Heritage and Cosmopolitan, among other magazines, and now spends most of her days writing about the arts for TIME International as well as penning pieces for Redbook, Prevention and Quest. Aydt is also a professor at The New School University, where she has been teaching courses on creative and media writing since 2001. She lives in Manhattan’s East Village with her young son, Jamie, and her husband, Jim.

Andrea Bennett helped put together our international luxury hotel roundup, “Five Stars, Four Cities” (page 44). A contributing editor for Travel + Leisure and the former anonymous hotel critic for the New York Post, Bennett’s work has appeared in T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Town & Country, USA Today, Money, Fortune, Men’s Journal and The Wall Street Journal.

Paige Bowers began her writing career in D.C. on the foreign desk of The Washington Times. After two years of interviewing a global cast of characters that included a Nobel laureate, the first female leader of a Muslim nation and assorted prime ministers, she left the nation’s capital to return to her Southern roots. Now based in Louisiana, Bowers—who interviewed Ella Fontanals-Cisneros for ONE Life (page 48)— also contributes to TIME, USA Today, The New York Times, People, Allure, Glamour, SELF, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution,  Atlanta and Palm Beach Illustrated. 8

Andy Wang, who co-wrote the Zaha Hadid profile, is a former editor at the New York Post, where he oversaw the Home and Travel sections. He also developed a section in the paper devoted to high-end property, Alexa Luxe Living. Wang has written for publications including The New York Times,, Las Vegas Weekly and Ocean Drive. He currently lives in Los Angeles, where he is editing an e-book for hip-hop artist Ja Rule. Former New York Post Travel Editor David Landsel has been traveling and writing about his journeys for 15 years. After visiting all 50 states and too many countries to count, he recently settled down in one of his favorite places—Southern California. On page 54, Landsel uncovers the beauty of Los Angeles’ unique architecture. “L.A. is a city that tends to play it cool,” says the new West Coaster. “Really getting to know Los Angeles takes effort, but the rewards are immense.”

After driving the all-electric Tesla Model S sedan for the story on page 23, veteran auto writer Howard Walker described the experience as “electrifying.” Walker has been reviewing new cars for magazines around the world for more than three decades. His personal ride? A ’76 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible— “the perfect Florida car,” he says.

Danica Lo helped research many of the articles in this issue and wrote about London’s newest luxury hotel, the gorgeous Bulgari in Knightsbridge. A former Wilhelmina plus-size model-turnedfashion editor, Lo’s favorite places in the world include the Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan, England’s Bodleian Library and Helsinki in the summertime.

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. In New York and London, auction houses buzz with brilliant new works and dizzying masterpieces. Art Basel Miami Beach and the city’s social season are just around the corner. And as buyers and brokers return from their summer adventures, the real estate market continues to rise. When I set out to create ONE Life, I wanted a magazine that would showcase the Sotheby’s lifestyle and how we live today. In this issue, I’m excited to celebrate the most fascinating people, homes, food, art and architecture.  Whether you collect modern art or rare wine, ONE Life’s “Acquire” section, beginning on page 15, will help you navigate this season’s auctions, with insider access to the latest sales on both sides of the pond. In a market where a Cézanne fetches $250 million and discovering the next Keith Haring could reap even bigger dividends, learning how to identify emerging talent is a rare and valuable skill. We asked two very experienced and dynamic art advisors, Sarah Jane Bruce and Flavia Masetto, to offer their insight. Turn to page 26 to read what they shared. The line between art and architecture is ever blurred, and Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid is stirring things up even more with a dramatic new vision for the Miami skyline. One Thousand Museum on Biscayne Boulevard, set amidst downtown’s bold new Miami Worldcenter neighborhood, is one of the most exciting projects I have ever been involved with. On page 34, we take a closer look at what the renowned architect has in store for Miami.  Another visionary seamlessly blending art and architecture is Ella Fontanals-Cisneros. Turn to page 48 to take a peek inside the distinctive homes of this extraordinary collector and philanthropist, from Switzerland to New York to Miami.   At ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, we believe art takes many forms and has the power to transform people and cities—just look at Art Basel and how it has elevated Miami to a global elite destination. That is why we foster an appreciation of the arts and enable and encourage our agents to participate in art lectures, gallery openings and world-class art fairs. As they become more knowledgeable, they can connect on a more elevated and personal level with our international clients through this shared passion for and experience with art. That is the ONE Life lifestyle, a life worth celebrating.

The decadence of the 1920s lives on in timeless Art Deco accessories.

The Gatsby Effect When Baz Luhrmann’s cinematic twist on the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic The Great Gatsby hit theaters in May, it made an immediate impact on contemporary style. Nowhere was that more apparent than at Sotheby’s, where diamond-encrusted Art Deco jewelry saw brisk—and big—sales at auction. “The truly spectacular pieces from the period are becoming increasingly rare, so they tend not only to hold their value but to increase,” says Carol Elkins, a senior specialist in Sotheby’s jewelry department. Trend-wise, buyers are very interested in necklaces, Elkins says, and they tend to purchase pieces (such as a platinum, natural pearl and diamond sautoir by Cartier that recently sold for $425,000) that can be worn with either jeans or a fabulous gown. Stackable bracelets are also hot, as evidenced by the platinum, colored stone, diamond and pearl Tutti Frutti bracelet by Cartier (above) that sold for $1.4 million. Other notable sales: An 18-karat gold, diamond and jade cigarette case by Van Cleef & Arpels (top right) sold for $22,500; a Boucheron evening bag featuring platinum, diamond and seed pearl went for $56,250; and an antique diamond, platinum and emerald brooch (right) fetched nearly $3 million—five times its estimated value. “Art Deco style is never going to go away,” Elkins says. “It’s as timeless as the pyramids.”

London in the 1960s was the capital of cool, a place where the hemlines were short, Mini Coopers were the preferred mode of transport and The Beatles composed the soundtrack of the time. It was also a hub for all things new and exciting in visual art—and this past September, Sotheby’s London put on an exhibit and sale to illustrate just how deep the country’s creativity ran throughout the decade. “The New Situation: Art in London in the Sixties” was a collaboration between Sotheby’s modern and post-war British art department and the legendary art dealer Kasmin—whose gallery hosted David Hockney’s breakout solo exhibition in 1963, cementing Hockney’s status as one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.

Two black leather and stainless steel Oscar Niemeyer armchairs and an ottoman— designed in the 1970s and once parked in the lobby of the French Communist Party headquarters—sold for $35,233.


summer 2013 Furniture and art commanded top dollar in May and June.

Photographer Andreas Gursky’s wall-sized shots of the international stock exchange were popular during the Wall Street boom, but not so much during the global financial crisis. In late June, the tide turned again as collectors snapped up five of Gursky’s prints at a London auction for between $744,063 and $3.32 million a pop. A rare Persian carpet owned by the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. sold for $33.7 million, more than five times its estimated sale price, making it the highest-grossing carpet in history. The previous record-holder was a blueleaf patterned rug from Iran, which sold for $9.6 million in 2010.

Cy Twombly’s etchings will be auctioned November 13-14.

Poems to the Sea In 1959, the painter Cy Twombly and his wife, Tatiana Franchetti, moved to Sperlonga, an idyllic Italian fishing village located between Rome and Naples. He described the Mediterranean Sea around him as “always just white, white, white. And then, even when the sun comes up, it becomes a lighter white.” Inspired, Shortstop, 1957, John Chamberlain Twombly etched 24 works in graphite pencil and wax crayon in one day—spare but complex drawings infused with classical, poetic and sexual references. This abstract series, “Poems to the Sea,” is among the featured offerings from the New York-based Dia Art Foundation being auctioned by Sotheby’s in November. The suite alone is expected to bring in $6 million to $8 million for Dia, whose other works being auctioned include pieces by Barnett Newman and John Chamberlain. Dia is hoping to raise at least $20 million at the November 13-14 auction for an acquisition budget.

A lack of modern and impressionist paintings on the art market is driving up prices. Monet’s 1908 Le Palais Contarini (left) sold for $30.8 million in London; Mondrian’s Composition With Red, Yellow and Blue (1927) went for $14.5 million; Picasso’s 1971 drawing L’étreinte merited $4.8 million; and another Picasso, Femme Assise en Robe Grise, from the private collection of the artist’s granddaughter Marina, sold for $5 million.

Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman by linda marx

Marchesa’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection, inspired by a Goya painting, reflected the feminity of the Romantic period.



018_SPOTLIGHTMARQUESA_1013.indd 18

I tend to veer toward the dramatic, and our brand embodies the spirit of Marchesa [Luisa Casati].”

Georgina Chapman

Co-founded in 2004 by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, Marchesa has become synonymous with high style. The stunning eveningwear, inspired by vintage silhouettes but with a modern flair, creates elegant drama on the runways—and on the red carpet. Stars like Jennifer Lopez, Sienna Miller, Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz and Jessica Alba grace Hollywood events draped in Marchesa, and stylistas the world over have closets filled with their designs. Now both 37, Chapman and Craig met while studying at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Aware of their similar design aesthetic, the friends decided to launch a fashion line after graduating, with Chapman focusing on design creation and Craig specializing in textile prints. ONE caught up with New York–based Chapman to talk about inspiration, travel and Marchesa’s new venture. On her muse, socialite Marchesa Luisa Casati “[She] was a living work of art, and was so daring and dramatic in the way she dressed—an ideal I strive to achieve in each collection…. I tend to veer toward the dramatic, and our brand embodies the spirit of Marchesa in this way.” Her inspiration “[It] can strike me at the oddest moments— mostly late at night and often from a piece of art, a book I am reading or a film that I watch before bed. Travel, of course, has had a great influence on my designs, and I have always been drawn to Indian and Asian elements.” Marchesa’s new line “Marchesa Voyage has its own DNA, of a global traveler. It’s a glamorous, effortless and seasonless global lifestyle, whether a woman is traveling to a remote island, going to work or running errands on the weekend. The target customer is both our current clients who are looking to incorporate our signature aesthetic into their everyday wardrobe as well as a new set of women who embody a glamorous, relaxed spirit in their daily lives. The specific inspiration for our debut collection is a reflection of the many travels Keren and I have experienced throughout our lives…. It’s full of eclectic pieces in custom prints and unexpected color combinations with intense, saturated and vivid hues.” Must-carry travel items “I bring along whatever can make me feel as if I am at home, no matter where I am—like my own down pillow and Frette pillowcase. I love to take pictures, so I take my Canon camera. Inspiration can strike at any moment.” ◗

SPOT Armani/Casa Miami

Even in a city entrenched in the finest spectrum of luxuries, it’s hard not to notice Armani/ Casa. The stately and inviting 1,200-square-foot expanse in Miami’s Design District glows from the inside out with the warmth of furnishings and decor that would look as at home in a small ocean-side bungalow as in a palatial villa. Inside the gorgeous showroom—one of only three Casa stores in the United States—the experience is uniquely European. “Our store is different from any other that exists in Miami, and perhaps in the whole southeast United States,” says Massimo Melchiorre, CEO of Armani/Casa Miami. “The concept is taken from all the other Armani/Casa stores in the world, and perhaps for this reason it is so European.” The sophisticated environment is at once spacious and intimate—filled with luxe oversized 20

pieces, each object carefully paired with accent lighting and accoutrements. The showroom is pieced together with bold items such as the imperial red Baloon chair, created by Roppongi Hill in Tokyo and crafted in Italy, and the more neutral limited-edition Borromini bentwood chaise lounge. The collection was inspired by the French Art Deco period of the first half of the twentieth century, a design sensibility already deeply anchored in South Beach. The piece of the moment, says Melchiorre, is a bookcase called The Freud. The shelf/room partition is hand-constructed with a fine finish called black straw marquetry, a technique developed in France during the Art Deco period. It’s crafted from pieces of individually painted straw thermally glued to a wooden base in a shape meant to evoke the sun’s rays. But design enthusiasts will do better to make the trip to Armani/Casa and see it all for themselves—the casa, after all, is a masterpiece in its own right. “As soon as clients step into the showroom, they experience something detached from everything else outside,” Melchiorre says. “They just enjoy the visit and embrace Armani lifestyle as we love it.” ◗ Armani/Casa Miami, 10 NE 39th St., Miami, 305.573.4331

Apres Ski Chez Vous Merriam-Webster defines apres ski as a social activity after a day of skiing. For the lucky owners of Viceroy Residences, there is no finer experience than entertaining friends and family in the comfort of chez vous—your own slope-side home. With amazing views, the conveniences of a ski valet, the insider knowledge of a concierge and a cast of superlative amenities (from room service to housekeeping to child-care arrangements), Viceroy residents are never encumbered with petty annoyances. There’s no need to worry about transporting equipment from home to slope, making dinner reservations or arranging housekeeping. Add to that an award-winning restaurant—Eight K—and a 7,000-square-foot spa providing the perfect bit of pampering, and life at Viceroy is hard to beat. Just outside, with more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain, Snowmass Mountain is large and varied enough that everyone—from beginning to intermediate skiers, from snowboarders to those who crave backcountry experiences—will be more than satisfied with the slopes and trails. The 152 ski-in/out luxury condo-hotel units at Viceroy Residences truly are the ideal ski and summer vacation homes. As an added convenience, when owners are away, they can contract Viceroy to rent out their homes, which begin at $259,000 for studios and go up to $2.5 million for four-bedroom residences. Clearly, the range of properties and prices help to make Viceroy Residences not only a place to bank family memories but also a savvy business move for a wide range of ski lovers. Sales are expected to be steep again this winter, with three local banks already financing purchases and eager to lend on what many consider to be the most sophisticated and ultra-modern address in Aspen/Snowmass.


By Michael Kaplan

However, as broker Lisa Price of Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty puts it, “The whole idea behind this is that you are not just buying a property. You are buying a place where your family can bond and have awesome vacations. With all of the services we offer, your oversight becomes minimal. Because everything is taken care of, families spend quality time together, having fun rather than sorting out details. In short, to own a property at Viceroy  Snowmass is to have a place where you can build memories for years to come.”  At Viceroy, Jean-Michel Gathy has focused on creating a clean and modern look for the interiors—and the building itself is LEED Gold-certified, which reduces heating costs and helps the environment. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramic views of Snowmass Village as well as the namesake mountain. All residences come fully furnished with cozy fireplaces and kitchens outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances that are sure to bring out the top chef in anyone. While Snowmass has attracted families for decades with its perfect mix of all-ages activities, including weekly rodeos and summer concerts, Aspen is just a 15-minute drive away. There you can indulge in the city’s wide variety of dining options, nightlife and high-end shopping. Viceroy owners receive complimentary transportation to and from Aspen; those who stay on property enjoy discounts on food, beverages, and spa services. A great location, fabulous amenities and luxurious living spaces are complemented by a staff that works hard to please. As General Manager Hugh Templeman likes to say, “Whatever you need, we will make it happen.” ◗ For sales and more information, please contact Lisa Price, director of sales 855.923.4500 |

The expansive and cozy residences at Viceroy are nestled in Snowmass Mountain, with more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain right outside. Enjoy a day on the slopes, unwind at the spa, then relax by the fire in your private condo.

artas investment Buy what you like, not what someone else says you should like. “Of course art’s an investment,” says Bruce. “Sometimes it’s a very good investment that has incredible returns for people who do it smartly. But it’s a mistake to think of it only as an investment financially. You need to think of it as an investment emotionally and aesthetically.“ Adds Masetto: “The best strategy is first to rely on the emotional value a piece of art might have. Then it will never lose its value.” 26

Research the source. The duo recommends buying only from galleries that have a tested reputation and whose artists have been seen at events such as international exhibits, museum shows and biennials. It is also a good idea to understand how the gallery manages the abundance or scarcity of an artist’s oeuvre. The art market is driven by the rules of supply and demand; obviously, the rarer and harder it is to acquire an artist’s work, the higher the value. A gallery that is astute about making sure the market isn’t flooded with an artist’s work—and carefully selects the venues where they will exhibit and makes sure pieces are sold into important collections—is doing its job. Read your artist’s résumé. Bruce and Masetto advise potential buyers to take the artist’s bio into consideration. Buy from artists who went to good schools and who are extremely engaged in a dialogue with what’s happening in the art world now. Look at their track record in secondary market auctions as well as the quality and variety of their work. ◗

When it comes to smart investing, sophisticated players know to look outside the stock market to alternative assets like fine art. However, they also know that just like betting on a startup, investing in an emerging artist is highly speculative. Without a track record, it is impossible to predict whether an artist’s work will stand the test of time. Fine art advisors Sarah Jane Bruce ( and Flavia Masetto (, partners at Masetto Bruce Advisory, offer a few guidelines for choosing investment pieces just in time for Art Basel Miami.

Flavia Masetto: Conceptual Art

We’ve seen a lot of conceptual art lately, and collectors are starting to look for a new meaning or emotional approach in painting— a bit of a coming back to the source, to the trace and expression of the brush and the paint as a matter. There has been more demand for works of painting lately, and I see a strong growth potential in this medium right now, especially in Europe and America.” ONELIFE

Argentina’s “Secret” Restaurant Scene The latest culinary craze sweeping Buenos Aires? Dining with a chef a casa. BY Michael Kaplan Home cooking takes on new meaning in Argentina’s bustling capital city, where chefs have turned their domiciles into dining establishments known as puertas cerradas (“closed doors”). Essentially semi-private restaurants, these establishments offer an experience that visitors would otherwise be hard-pressed to access. In the homes of chefs, travelers not only dine on the most authentic local cuisine but get a true cultural lesson as well. The smoky meat-intensive asados of the Adentro Dinner Club ( is authentic Argentine fare at its best, 28

served in the home of Chef Gabriel Aguallo and his girlfriend, Kelly Brenner. But while traditional Argentine food is certainly popular on the scene, many puertas cerradas offering cuisine from other parts of the world are thriving as well. At Cocina Sunae (, a spot-on Southeast Asian house, the pho is so good it transports diners to the street-side kitchens of Hanoi. NOLA ( and I Latina ( serve up Cajun and Colombian/Caribbean fusion, respectively. Casa Felix ( offers innovative pescetarian. A standout dish here is Chef Diego Felix’s fresh anchovies encrusted with herbs in red pepper sauce. “You can’t put these on

a restaurant menu; nobody will order them,” Felix says. “But at my house, you’ll eat anchovies and they will be delicious.” Felix’s statement identifies a key element of puertas cerradas dining: You put yourself in the hands of the chef—and emerge all the better for it. Unlike in a standard restaurant, you eat the way the chef wants you to eat. There’s no menu of options, rather a set menu of courses determined by the chef. This way, diners are sure to have a satisfying meal, as after all the chef tends to know best. Pablo Abromovsky, who helms the French-focused Paladar ( with his sommelier wife, says it best: “In gastronomy, small-scale brings better food. I bring a

level of service that a chef in a regular restaurant cannot.” Perhaps the ultimate testament to the quality and endurance of puertas cerradas is that they are embraced not only by travelers but also by locals of a food-crazed city where culinary standards are high. Allie Lazar, whose blog covers the Buenos Aires dining scene, says the reason is simple: “It’s good food made by well-known chefs, who often serve the kinds of dishes that you just can’t get anywhere else.” Besides, she adds, the environment can’t be beat: “Even in your own city, there is something special about eating in a chef’s house. It’s very romantic!” ◗

Catalunya Hong Kong

Catalunya Avocado and lobster roll

Last spring, a consortium of backers attached to some of Spain’s—and the world’s—top restaurants debuted a new establishment called Catalunya that was quickly praised as “the hottest opening of the year” in Hong Kong’s Wan Chai district. Executive Chef Alain Devahive Tolosa’s résumé includes more than a decade working alongside Ferran Adria, the celebrated creator of the now-shuttered El Bulli, the famed Catalonian temple to extreme culinary creativity. The delightful bordello-meets-rustic farmhouse design by New York’s AvroKo is the perfect setting for a long evening sampling from the fascinating menu, which draws goodhumored inspiration from familiar Iberian flavors. Take, for instance, the Bikini on the tapas menu. Essentially a toasted sandwich, it’s filled with prized Iberian ham and cheese and slices of truffle—not the first thing you’d expect at a hot-ticket Hong Kong restaurant, but it’s one of the restaurant’s top-selling items. Other must-samples: the comforting croquettes; a stunning, ruby-red Catalan tomato tartare; and a cooked-to-perfection suckling pig. Most ingredients are imported from Spain, adding to the authenticity of the tastes. But with 360-degree panoramic views of the city, the scenery is pure Hong Kong. 32 Oi Kwan Road, 852 2866 7900,

Chitoshi Takahashi’s latest venture, located on the seventeenth floor of the Raffles Dubai, brings a little bit of Tokyo to the Middle East. From the first “Irasshiamase!” as they walk in the door, high-rolling Dubai diners fall in love with the authentically Japanese experience at Tomo, right down to the kimono-clad hostesses. Takahashi has spent more than a decade bringing Japanese cooking and culture to the United Arab Emirates. Tomo —which translates loosely to “friend for a lifetime”—is his crowning achievement. The simple and efficient decor is Japanese to the core, thus allowing the food to shine. The menu offers a journey through almost the entirety of Japanese cuisine: imported wagyu beef (from Japan, of course), delectable sashimi, yakitori, soba noodles, distinctive Japanese curry and everyday essentials like katsudon—deep-fried pork cutlets lacquered in cooked egg over a bowl of steamed rice. Perhaps the best way to experience Tomo is on the open-air Tatami Terrace. It offers traditional Japanese dining (shoes off!) and sweeping views of the Burj Khalifa and the rest of the Dubai skyline.

BLURS THE LINE BETWEEN ART AND ARCHITECTURE Downtown Miami is about to be changed forever by one of the boldest names in design today.

“She’s an extraordinary force of nature that...whacked us all on the back of the head.” —Frank Gehry on Zaha Hadid.


Zaha Hadid Architects


here’s no question London-based architect Zaha Hadid is a big fan of Miami—so much so that the superstar architect combined two units at the W South Beach to create a very generous piedà-terre that she repairs to when she needs to relax. Now she is ready to put her stamp on her beloved escape town with the first Hadid-designed building in Miami—One Thousand Museum. With just one structure, Hadid is poised to seriously elevate the city skyline. “Zaha’s vision for One Thousand Museum will create an extraordinary residential tower for global travelers making Miami one of their homes,” says developer Louis Birdman. “By fusing together art and architecture, One Thousand Museum is leading architectural design in Miami into a new era.” The luxury condominium, located downtown at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, is pure Hadid—high elegance with a revolutionary vibe. She designed the 60-story skyscraper with no interior columns, quite an architectural achievement. And the amenities match the aesthetic. “There is a helicopter pad, which will be a heightened luxury for the jet-setting residents,” says Mayi de la Vega, founder and CEO of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, which is representing the condominium. “There’s also a great aquatics center, an indoor botanical garden and indoor and outdoor pools.” As for the units themselves, they boast the largest private outdoor space in the city. “Some have 16-by46-foot balconies,” says de la Vega. “No other building has balconies that size.” The building is such a marvel, de la Vega says, even the creator herself is clamoring for a unit—Hadid is eyeing one of the full-floor units, which measure 10,000 square feet and are priced at $15 million. Iraqi-born Hadid got off to a good start for a future in architecture, fortunate to grow up in one of Baghdad’s first Bauhaus-inspired buildings. After earning a university degree in mathematics and graduating from the prestigious Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, where she studied under Rem Koolhaas, Hadid went to

work for Koolhaas and became a partner in his Dutch firm. In 1980, she launched her own company, Zaha Hadid Architects. Headquartered in a former London schoolhouse, the firm now has 300 employees who are working on dozens of projects at any given time. Throughout her career, Hadid has developed a reputation for defying expectations and pushing forward new ideas in architectural design—the “Lady Gaga of Architecture,” she has been dubbed. As Frank Gehry once put it, “She’s an extraordinary force of nature that came out of the blue and whacked us all on the back of the head and said, ‘Wake up, kids, there’s more stuff to do.’” Indeed, Hadid’s buildings break the mold and make you rethink what’s possible. It happened with the London Aquatics Centre (built for the 2012 Olympics), which she designed so the structure’s interior brings to mind an undulating wave; her intriguingly angled Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University resembles a tricky sculpture in its own right; and the dramatic Guangzhou Opera House (for which she beat out her former mentor Koolhaas to win the commission) serves as the perfect mood setter for the city’s opera buffs. Next up is an 11-story apartment building on the far west side of Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. Marking Hadid’s Gotham debut, the building’s curvy, deconstructed design—like all of her projects—is beautiful and challenging, and goes beyond visually pleasing aesthetics. “I don’t design nice buildings—I don’t like them,” Hadid told The Guardian. “I like architecture to have some raw, vital, earthy quality.”

In the case of One Thousand Museum, Hadid has created what’s been called an “exoskeleton” in that all of its bracing is on the outside, rather than the inside. Stunning from both perspectives, it joins a long list of her iconic, artful structures that defy traditional description. But that doesn’t stop people from trying. Fashion designer Donna Karan zeroed in on the architectural spirit of her friend in Time magazine. “[Hadid’s] buildings are like a gust of wind— organic, forceful and utterly natural,” she said. In more personal terms, Karan raved about Hadid’s sense of style, her seductive form of excitement and “her luminosity.” Friends are not the only ones who notice something special about the talented architect. Hadid is the first woman to win the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize, she had a one-woman exhibit at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan and in 2012 she was awarded the title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (the female equivalent of knighthood). After being given the title by the Queen of England, Hadid told the Telegraph, “I was not expecting that, to be honest. These things are always rather humbling because people have taken the time to consider you for the honor. You should not feel blasé about it.” Hadid is the furthest thing from blasé. A strong work ethic and attention to detail come through in everything she does—including the design of her London studio. “She has the Aqua table, her fiberglass sofa and the bag she designed for Louis Vuitton,” says de la Vega, ticking off some of Hadid’s more notable non-architectural

designs that decorate her gorgeous office. “But the space is all very down to earth,” de la Vega adds. “When you enter, you are walking into a real workspace, not a fancy building.” There will be plenty of time for styling when Hadid eventually purchases her unit at One Thousand Museum (completion is expected in 2016), which is situated near Miami’s Worldcenter and all that comes with it. “The idea is to develop the surrounding area as a pedestrian-friendly art center where you will have studios, galleries, terrific restaurants and maybe a great hotel,” says de la Vega. “It will be a mixed-use area that encourages people to walk through the neighborhood. That will be huge. Worldcenter brings so many great things. You go to a symphony there, you go to a show there. You’ll be able to walk to the Adrienne Arsht Center. I think it will be fantastic.” And perhaps sometime in the near future, you will find yourself sitting next to Zaha Hadid at a show, a musical production or an art event in the area. If you do, two things are fairly certain: She will have an opinion on whatever it is you have just seen, and she will probably be right. ◗

The Venice of America

Len Kaufman

No longer the spring break destination of yore, Fort Lauderdale is attracting the world’s wealthiest with its gorgeous waterfront properties and yachting lifestyle.


BY Michael kaplan

hen people refer to Fort Lauderdale as the Venice of America, they are not exaggerating. The city abounds with canals that are most ideal for mega-yacht owners in need of places to anchor their luxury cruisers. This helps to explain why one yachtsman happily paid $12.25 million for a property extraordinarily situated alongside one of the city’s splendid canals—with 595 feet of dockage. He simply pulls up his boat the way his neighbors pull up their Jaguars. Fort Lauderdale is regarded as a magnet for wealthy yacht enthusiasts. In the fall, it hosts the world’s largest boat show—the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. And in December, international glitterati gather for the Winterfest Boat Parade, an annual celebration that features a flotilla of more than 100 vessels bedecked in holiday regalia, cruising


through the city’s magnificent waterways. The festival is inaugurated with the highly anticipated Winterfest Black Tie Ball, the community’s most elegant social event of the season, and culminates with a series of celebrity-filled events and concerts. US News and World Report recently named Fort Lauderdale America’s fourth most popular destination for international buyers of real estate, and the world has taken note. A new terminal will transform Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport into Florida’s preeminent touchdown/takeoff spot. The real-estate scene in Fort Lauderdale is escalating—there have recently been a number of seven-figure sales. To help satisfy demand of affluent, high-end clientele, six full-service luxury condominum buildings are currently under

construction. Waterfront property is what it’s about here, as well-heeled residents gaze out their bedroom windows to admire their luxury vessels. But Fort Lauderdale has more to offer than yachting. Centrally located between Palm Beach and Miami, the city also boasts fabulous shopping, a sophisticated cultural scene and outstanding restaurants. One can stroll along famed Las Olas Boulevard to admire the many upscale boutiques, then enjoy evening cocktails accompanied by live music at the popular Grille 401. For those seeking the finest in culture, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts showcases internationally lauded ballet companies, extraordinary opera productions and the absolute best of the Broadway musical theater season. Also of cultural appeal is Fort Lauderdale’s Museum of Art. Situated in the hub of downtown, the

042_LAUDERDALE_1013.indd 43

museum presents superlative exhibits from world-renowned artists as well as inspiring lectures and informative workshops. Located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s financial plaza is the fashionable, contemporary eatery YOLO (“You Only Live Once”). Another popular dining destination is Lobster Bar Sea Grille, where the fish is fresh and tiled arches bring to mind the classic interior of New York City’s Grand Central Oyster Bar. For the full-blown Fort Lauderdale experience, those in the know partake of the Champagne lunches at the elegant Via Luna inside the Ritz-Carlton. The restaurant offers a ground-level view of breathtaking oceanfront that stretches for more than seven pristine miles, mesmerizing guests with the feeling of being aboard a cruise ship. Getting around in Fort Lauderdale is an experience in itself. A preferred mode of transport here is a private boat or water taxi—the canals and river are so convenient and prevalent that there is little reason to buck street traffic. Boats can be navigated nearly anywhere, even to the movie theater. It’s part of the glorious Fort Lauderdale lifestyle, one of the only cities in America where one can enjoy this experience. ◗ ONELIFE 43

Bulgari Hotel & Residences | LONDON Situated a stone’s throw from Hyde Park behind an imposing facade of Portland stone—the hallmark building material for some of the city’s most iconic structures, such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and the British Museum—is the sparkling one-year-old Bulgari Hotel & Residences, London’s first new five-star luxury hotel property in more than four decades. With design ethos and architecture firmly rooted in Bulgari’s rich silversmith heritage, everything from the finish on the bar to the bedside table lamps to the pattern on the custom silk curtains represents a seamless marriage between the Italian company’s roots and Britain’s manufacturing traditions. The hotel is home to 85 rooms and suites, a glamorous bar, a hotspot restaurant, an exclusive spa and a private screening room. “The architectural style of the project reflects the rigor of the Bulgari Hotel in Milan,” says architect Antonio Citterio. “Its classic, solid, contemporary style will consolidate the urban landscape in an 44

Barely an hour and a half from downtown San Diego, Guadalupe Valley offers miles of unspoiled Mexican scenery; a dry, sunny climate; and some excellent wines. Not to mention an up-and-coming selection of aged cheeses and olive oils bright, raw and peppery enough that you’ll be tempted to smuggle vast quantities back across the border. Perched on a hillside in Ensenada is the striking new Hotel Endémico, comprising 20 environmentally sensitive modular minisuites scattered across the landscape to ensure maximum views. Hotel Endémico is the latest project from Mexico’s forwardthinking Grupo Habita, which developed the country’s first true design hotel (Habita Hotel) in Mexico City more than a decade ago. Owners Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha, known as the country’s boutique hotel kings, brought their talents to the States in 2011 when they opened the aptly named Hotel Americano in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood. Designed by Gracia Studio, an eye-on-the-future firm with offices in Tijuana and San Diego, the architecture of Endémico calls to mind more

Delano Marrakech | Marrakech Though Morocco’s beloved city has long attracted starlets, politicians, style seekers and style makers, until recently the City of Roses turned its most luxurious bits inward toward secret courtyards. Today, Marrakech is embracing in-your-face glamour in a building boom that includes 20 new hotels opened last year—the latest being the 71-room boutique Delano Marrakech. A partnership among Morgans Hotel Group, Moroccan entrepreneur Ahmed Bennani’s Hivernage Collection and Marbella Club Hotel Group, the Delano Marrakech is a hip (and handcrafted) balance among the newest properties, which range from wildly ostentatious to ascetic. Delano is among the most intimate, with a perfect blend of SoBemeets-Marrakech style, with nightlife to spare. The Jacques Garcia-designed interior blends his trademark public spaces (jewel-toned velvet drapes, opulent marbles) with the crisp white linens Delano devotees expect. Hand-carved ceilings and hand-painted headboards are oldworld, but room service via iPad is decidedly new. Even the Pearl Spa blends local favorite products like marocMaroc with international stars like Valmont. But it’s Delano’s restaurants that showcase its international comforts best: Michelin-starred chef Giancarlo Morelli celebrates Northern Italian cuisine at Pomiroeu; Namazake serves traditional and inventive Japanese in an exotic ode to the original, in Marbella, Spain; and an outdoor rooftop venue looks over sweeping views of the medina, Agdal Gardens and the Atlas Mountains—perfect with the cocktail of your choice or a traditional mint tea. —Andrea Bennett Angle Av.

In the very next photo, the art collector is in a room full of smiling family members in Venezuela. Then she’s on her private jet, then she’s on a Peruvian beach, then

she’s gallery-hopping in Lima, before heading to Madrid and on to Venice. Days later, she posts a selfie from the balcony of her Miami condominium, before jetting off to Cuba and then to London. She’s in a room full of musicians. She’s lounging in the sun-dappled grass for a picnic. She’s trying new restaurants and buying new art. No matter where she is or what she’s doing, Fontanals-Cisneros always feels at home— and that’s partly because she is. As founder of the Miami-based Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO), the Cuban-born philan50

thropist provides grants and commissions for Latin American artists, a job that requires nearconstant travel. Thus, she has homes all around the globe—in Venezuela, Switzerland, Madrid, Miami and New York. “Maybe my way is not normal for people who have a very formal life, but my day-to-day changes as my requirements change,” she says. “I travel around the world seeing many places and people. I live in the moment.” For Fontanals-Cisneros, her homes are as much of a passion project as her arts patronage—which is saying a lot for someone whose

Instagram profile reads “Live for Art.” With each property, she has been involved with the building or remodeling from the very beginning. Part of it is instinct—Fontanals-Cisneros once worked as a developer of luxury homes. Part of it is because she likes to put her own personal touches in each space, everything from embroideries to linens to the flow of her kitchen and more. In Miami, she works with the architect René González, who designed the CIFO Art Space, and landscape architects Raymond Jungles Inc. and Savino Miller Design Studio. In Europe, she

works with interior designer Luis Bustamante. “When I choose an architect or a designer, the most important thing for me is to find people who are involved in the process and who are flexible and understand my point of view,” she says. “I also look for people who are going to accept me intruding into their work, someone I can work well with and be friends with, too.” One of the most important things to Fontanals-Cisneros is that her homes blend into their surrounding environment. Her places in Miami and New York, for example, are very

modern with clean lines and glass, while her homes in Spain and Switzerland are more classic and laden with antiques. But one thing remains consistent in all of her homes, and that’s the color palette. Neutral hues are a hallmark of each interior so the art can take center stage. When it comes to choosing the art to display, however, that’s a bit more complicated. “Some countries like Spain and Switzerland have strict rules about what you can bring in and you have to pay customs,” explains Fontanals-Cisneros. “So when I buy or bring art into those spaces, I leave it there because there’s also more space in those homes. In Gstaad, I have a lot of photography because I think it looks very good in that house. In Miami, things are more flexible and I change the pieces I display every six months. So it just depends on the situation.” Each home is decidedly different in terms of both geography and aesthetic, but don’t ask

Fontanals-Cisneros to pick a favorite. “I love my homes because there’s a part of me in each of them,” she says. “I feel at home in all of them.” The international jet-setter certainly spends ample time in each of them—though she’s quick to point out her travels are mostly about business, not pleasure. “Some may see this kind of life as glamorous, but for me it is also a lot of work,” she says. Her whereabouts at any given time follows the arts: “Right now I’m working on two projects in Cuba, so I spend a lot of time there. I go to New York three or four times a year because of fairs, exhibits or other events. I can be in Venezuela two times a week sometimes. I spend a lot of time in Madrid and Switzerland, especially in the summer. And I’m in Miami to do work for my foundation, or for Art Basel. So it all depends on how my projects are moving and in what part of the world that develops.” No matter where she is, her far-flung friends can always check up on her fast-changing life via her Instagram and Facebook feeds, which are always up to date. “People are eager to see where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing,” says Fontanals-Cisneros of her online presence. “I like to give people a chance to see the world through my eyes and through the eyes of others. It’s my way of connecting with people who are curious.” ◗

LA bizarre, beautiful and entirely brillant By DAVID LANDSEL

In a city filled with beautiful people, driving beautiful cars, it’s easy to speed along without taking notice of much else. But go for a walk downtown and you’ll find streets brimming with boundless architectural beauty. In fact, a stroll down one particular street—Grand Avenue—is all you need to get a taste of Los Angeles’ aesthetic, which is at once peculiarly diverse and awe-inspiring. The avenue is home to some of the city’s greatest architectural achievements, from the dynamic creations of Frank Gehry to the soon-to-be-completed art museum, The Broad. The first thing you’ll likely notice is Walt Disney Concert Hall, its bouquet of silver sails reaching up into the blue sky. Home to the Los 54



Angeles Philharmonic, the Gehry-designed structure is so unlike anything else on this bustling boulevard, it’s hard to miss. A closer look at the undulating steel curves reveals unmarked stairways on either side of the building offering a portal to a maze of upper-level pathways—which weave their way through shaded gardens hidden away from outside view past the building’s gargantuan, shimmering petals. From up here, the building feels less like a jumble of misshapes and more like a giant, silver flower. This was precisely Gehry’s intent—Walt’s widow and the hall’s original donor, Lillian Disney, was an avid green thumb. A burbling, flower-shaped fountain that Gehry himself designed punctuates this point. The running

A walking tour of Grand Avenue reveals some of its most impressive sights. water and the shade of the trees create a mood that quietly ushers the surrounding city out of the conversation entirely. One block to the north is José Rafael Moneo’s Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, an imposing, sand-colored concrete fortress that hides away the third largest cathedral in the world—a stark, modern beast that hangs over the 101 Freeway. The treasures of this wonder live on the inside. As you pass along the building’s sweeping exterior courtyard, you eventually come upon the stories-high entrance hallway. Its floor of Spanish limestone draws you further in along the pilgrimage-length walk into the church. Once again, the city slips from your consciousness, the

alabaster windows letting in nothing but streams of Southern California’s abundant natural light. Most notable, perhaps, is a feeling of the immutability of this giant building, which offers a much-needed respite from the transient vibration of a city as new and ever-changing as Los Angeles. Between the expansive cathedral and the shimmering music hall, sitting above street level is the original Music Center, an open-air carnival of mid-century thrills. The nearly 50-year-old complex was designed by one of the most important architects of the period, Welton Becket, who also fathered Hollywood’s famed Capitol Records tower and the newly restored Cinerama Dome theatre on Sunset Boulevard.

to be entirely removed from the street, this cultural campus holds a wealth of intriguing architecture, from the grand columns of the Ahmanson Theatre to the theater-in-the-round Mark Taper Forum resting in the middle of a reflecting pool. Continue down Grand Avenue to uncover a plethora of beautifully stark design—such as the red-colored sandstone walls of Arata Isozaki’s 1986 Museum of Contemporary Art and, directly across the street, The Broad art museum, designed by New York firm Diller, Scofidio + Renfro, currently under construction and slated to open in late 2014. Punctuating all of this “starchitecture” is Grand Park, spilling down the hill to the doorstep of City Hall (the famous Art Deco triumph that still manages to find its place in an increasingly crowded downtown skyline). The park will soon boast the tallest building on the west coast, the Wilshire Grand, scheduled for completion in 2017. Like the buildings that rest topside, Grand Park is a statement piece that

demands closer inspection. A stroke of genius that sits atop multiple parking garages, this rethink of an existing plaza that was anything but grand has become a gathering place for the growing group of downtown residents who are creating a new kind of Los Angeles. Attend a free yoga class in the park, enjoy the weekly farmers market or dance to the music of occasional DJ sessions (with cocktails at an impromptu bar). Or, on any day, simply stroll past the park’s heavenly lavender gardens, olive trees and palm trees and watch the children splash in the interactive fountain while families picnic in the shade. Venture off Grand Avenue and you’ll discover an entire city filled with diverse designs that together create a beautifully unique landscape to match L.A.’s personality. From Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House to Richard Meier’s Getty Center, the futuristic LAX to the retro Capitol Records tower, Los Angeles is a treasure trove of secret thrills just waiting to be noticed. ◗

6959 Sunrise Drive Coral Gables

Located in Sunrise Harbour, a guard-gated tropical hamlet in sunny Coral Gables, the Mar-a-Villa was conceived by noted architect, Ramon Pacheco, and its current owners a little less than 10 years ago. The level of architectural detail is profound and offers a glimpse of a style that is reminiscent of life along the Mediterranean coast. The result is an inspirational estate directly positioned on muchphotographed Biscayne Bay. Rising up three impressive stories, you are first welcomed by a towering fountain, similar to that of fountains in Portofino, and graceful curving staircases. Once inside, the estate offers 5 bedrooms, a den/office (or 6th bedroom), 5.5 baths, 2 family rooms, formal living and dining rooms, breakfast area, media room, elevator, garage, pool and summer kitchen. In addition, there are bonus recreational areas and a full bathroom at pool level. Its lofty foyer is grand but your eyes will feast on the phenomenal open bay views right from the entry. On occasion, dolphins have been spotted frolicking in these beautiful, warm waters. The Mar-a-Villa was designed for maximum impact of the water as it blends inside and outside living by the use of many covered and uncovered balconies, terraces and windows. With 100 feet on the bay, the estate boasts a concrete, full-service “T” dock that will accommodate up to 4 vessels.
