Alto Vista literally translated would be “high view”. Alto Vista is also the name of a village on the hills above the north shore in Aruba. Aforementioned village is well known for the little yellow Chapel of Alto Vista which is considered to be the birthplace of Aruba’s Catholic religion, the first Chapel to be built on the island by the Indians and the Spanish Pioneers over 250 years ago. The village that they had formed was given the name Alto Vista probably because of the nothing obstructing overlooking view from the hills. With this kind of view we identified ourselves, continuously overlooking the entire real estate situation in Aruba from a higher point, says founder of Alto Vista Real Estate, Rudolph Kok. According to the aforementioned is the name of his company well selected, he confirms. I actually didn’t start out as a realtor. I graduated at Leiden University and started my professional career as a lawyer. Some years later I was approached by my family to start a family eyewear business and in 1996 KOK OPTICA was founded. As the organizational man in the company, I was in charged with the set up of new branches and it is here were I became familiar with the real estate market in Aruba.

Alto Vista Real Estate

Friends Forever, Amigos para siempre!

Because of my law background and my experience with real estate I found myself more and more advising friends in an informal way whether it was to sell or to buy real estate and I genuinely enjoyed being involved. That’s when I decided to take the plunge so to speak. The year 2008 was not the best timing to open a real estate company but with creative dedication of our team I can conclude that I am very happy with the results for this year. The activity in the “high-end” house market has started back again slowly; the “lower to mid-size” house market is still dynamic. House prices have not dramatically fallen down in Aruba as in the

USA. Buyers and investors still value Aruba as a good investment opportunity, not in the least part because of our relatively stable economy and political stability! I think that many investors share the same positivism by the current investments of the private and public sector and onwards in commerce, tourism, hotel and financial sector. Good grounds to be very positive about the coming year!

Our team consists of local agents with different cultural backgrounds and is therefore multiple lingual which is in complete consistency with the multicultural mix of the Aruban population that reflects a rich past. It does not matter where you are coming from, only where we can bring you. At Alto “We Wish You Happy Holidays!” Vista Real Estate we are committed to exceptional service and dedicate ourselves to accomplishing our client’s goals. We provide the most innovative, effective and experienced team that consistently deliver a sustainable and competitive advantage to our clients. We go beyond satisfying the real estate needs of our clients. We develop custom solutions designed for each individual we serve. Integrity is not only the cornerstone of our philosophy, it guides everything we do. We take seriously our stated motto to always “do the right thing”, a commitment we hold steadfast for our clients and ourselves. It means keeping our promises and exceeding expectations, every single day.

Shaping the Heart Reflections of the past in the present...

If you drive along the shore through Oranjestad, you’ll see “het bestuurskantoor” (the office of the government) and the house of parliament stretched along the road, just around the corner from the Willem III tower. As you might know, Savaneta was the first capital of Oranjestad. Oranjestad did not really exist, but a small village, named Rancho, where fishermen came to shore. The name Paardenbaai (bay of horses) still refers to the harbor that used to be there. In 1876, it was decided to build Fort Zoutman along the coast as a proactive defense. At that time the shore line was different, in fact the complex that we know as Seaport marketplace did not exist, only after WO II, ,much later, this land was, in typical Dutch style gained from the Ocean. Around 1800 Oranjestad became the official capital and governmental and other types of buildings started blooming. The first protestant church dates from 1822 and still is standing, beautifully restored next to the newer church along the Whilhelminastraat ( Whilhelminastreet), the first street of Aruba. The Wilhelminastraat is the first street on Aruba and if you look on the map of Oranjestad you’ll see that it seems like it’s on an angle in regards to the ocean, but in fact at the time it was parallel to the shore. The first governmental office, after the governmental residence on the Zoutmanstraat became too small and was located in the former B.J. Arends building, (across from Garufa’s) on the Wilhelminastraat and after that the governmental offices resided in the now the also restored Courthouse. Just before WO II, a complex for officers (passanggrahan) was built along the harbor.

At that time the Department of Public Works( D.O.W) from Curacao designed the buildings on Aruba and the architecture is very recognizable as what later would be referred to as Dutch tropical architecture with cement “climate” shades to minimize the amount of direct sunlight on the windows, wooden shutters and windows so the tropical breezes would naturally cool the public spaces. Since this still originated in the late thirties and early forties, the general style is very much influenced by the Bauhaus architectural wave, that swept across the world around that time. And luckily for those who like the clean lines and geometrical shapes, this type of architecture is perfect for a tropical climate.

“Creating shade helps save energy...” After different uses, additions, like the house of parliament and even a period of being unoccupied, the current government, made it once again its headquarters. As our government exists of 8 ministers with their team plus the Prime minister, who is currently Mr. Mike Eman, it soon became obvious that the old building would ( again) not suffice. “So we started thinking,” says Leo Ponson, architect and owner of Achiosa, “We started taking about the u-shape of the building and the surround historical buildings, like the current offices of the registry office, fort Zoutman, the protestant Church, the ocean; in short, the open space is like a historical center. So naturally I drew a circle in the middle, which then translated into an ellipse. But to avoid losing that center, and to stay connected for the public, we elevated the ellipse and connected it to one of the arms of the old

building, and so creating a connection between the old and the new. In theory, when reshaping monuments, a newer addition should always be recognizable rendering courtesy HAD and at least 8 meters away from the monument, practically, the ministers should be able to walk easily to Parliament meetingsThe “ Cocolishi” ( or shell) as the newer build got nicknamed, consists of three layers that goes up, ending in the Prime minister’s office and a meeting room with a Panoramic window over Oranjestad and the ocean.

er with contactors to find the best solutions, like individually adjustable air-condition systems. But the best energy saving comes from the creation of an extended roof on each level that spread out 1.80 meters outwards, just like the concrete blinds on the older building that will help save energy costs by 30% though minimizing the amount of direct sunlight on the windows. It is nice to see Oranjestad once again restored to be that center of activity. Especially as an architect I’m happy to see that both monuments and newer buildings shape the skyline of Oranjestad. For me a building is a reflection of our society, of our hopes and dreams, in a way a definition of our culture. And the best thing of all? In fifty years, our shell will be a monument too.” Special Thanks to Leo Ponson, Owner of Achiosa.

With modern materials and technology, we have managed to create a building that is environmental friendly and adds in the Aruban tropical building tradition. On one hand we have closely worked togethPictures courtesy Achiosa

A Streetcar Named Aruba

“The Streetcar in Aruba is unique for the Caribbean”

In a short period of time you’ll be able to get of the cruise ship and hop on the streetcar that will take you to the renewed heart of downtown Oranjestad, the shopping oasis with different kinds of shops, and restaurants. Downtown is hip and booming again. Around the world there is always a trend that during a recession, downtown becomes once again the center of attention. New York & Manhattan or Miami and its South Beach. And why not? A city should be the center for commerce, business, leisure and living. Take a stroll through Main Street and visit the exposition (located beside Wulfson and Wulfson) where you can see exactly how the down town area will look like when it’s completely finished. When the project is finished, everything will come together, says Glen Goddijn, who is one of the independent advisors on the

project. Having studied at the Design Academy, my strength lies in creating a conceptual infrastructure that is carried through in all aspects of the design. For instance I have created a unique design, based on unique Aruban cultural elements that is being used as a decoration in different elements, from the rosters that will help rainwater flow to the trees and plants to the benches where people can sit down and relax.” Main Street is no longer the main attraction, the whole heart of down town Aruba now is. It’s improved, embellished and repurposed downtown. The different squares along Main Street provide an architectural distraction as well as a cultural reference to people that has contributed to Oranjestad. From the cruise terminal to the Willem III tower, Oranjestad is once again the center of attention and the streetcar will take you there. Pictures courtesy of Bo Aruba & Glen Goddijn

Aruba Palms Realtors “Find your piece of paradise in Aruba”

“I’ve been a realtor for twelve years says, Jan Falcone, owner of Aruba Palm Realtors. When I first got married 32 years ago, we moved to Aruba from Curacao. I fell in love with Aruba. With the friendliness of the people, their hospitality and of course the beautiful nature, from the emerald green to the pure white sandy beaches. I have a fascination for architecture, personally I love the art deco period with their sleek lines and elegant shapes. “My personal favorite One of my personal favorites is the great is Art Deco” American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, perhaps that’s why I like the architecture that is so typical for most of the governmental buildings of Aruba, since their tropical architecture is also a reflection of the style that was so loved during that time period. But then again I can easily be charmed by a traditional cunucu home or Spanish colo-

nial style home, for me each home has their perfect match. That’s what I like most about Real Estate is that I can help someone find their dream home, not just a piece of real estate. We have a multicultural, multilingual team of agents around me that do their best to find the best match.

Our office is most conveniently located, just a stone’s throw away from the Palm beach hotel Area, in the new shopping mall next to the Soprano’s bar, in front of the Brickell Bay Hotel, across from South Beach. You can drop by during office hours, call or email us to make an appointment or visit us online, we are always more than happy to help you find your home in paradise.

We work together with all other realtors on the island to see what’s on the market and match that to what our clients are looking for, whether it’s to buy, to sell or to rent. You know, I virtually never stop working, it’s like playing a game of memory, once I know what my clients are looking for and I spot a nice home or location, it’s another possible great match. And that’s what I love about my job, she says with a smile. Brickell bay sandbar shops ,J.E.

The Tradition of Dande Dande brings prosperity and good luck in the New Year Dande has been a folkloric tradition (more than one hundred years) here on Aruba and it is because of its geographical limitation (island) and isolation, that the music has evolved into a very specific traditional style, that is original in the Caribbean. “Ai Nobe ” is the traditional phrase that the singers use to greet the Aruban families in their homes on the 31st of December, after midnight. The word Dande is probably derived from the Spanish word“Dandare”, This means to go from one place to another. Just after midnight singers go from door to door to wish their occupants the best for “Ay Dande nos a jega na bo porta Ai Nobe the new year that lies Another date that is mentioned ahead, bringing a ser- O Dande, we have come to your Door - Ai Nobe” is 1863, the year in which slavery enade for each family was abolished. To express their joy of their new found freedom, the member and wishing former slaves used Dande. them nothing but the best. Data from oral history research show that Willem Serverius Geerman, born in 1836 (better known as Pa Wimpy Maduro, son of Maduro), is one of the oldest known Dande singers. One oral history story shows that Dande found its roots in Savaneta (at that time Commandeurs harbor), the former harborplace. It is said that the late Jan Leoncio Pieter Koolman Jr.composed and wrote a Dande around 1860. Living in Commandeurs baai,which at that time was the first place where most of the colonists and governors at the time were living, before Oranjestad became the capital. At that time only one instrument, “the TAMBU” was used. This musical instrument has its origin in the African music tradition. In a short while Dande spread to Santa Cruz, Paradera and Noord.

Possible different forms of Dande have existed in districts around the island, but since there was no mass media (e.g. radio,TV, newspapers, internet etc.) like today, this specific tradition was popular but not as well registered as today. As with any musical tradition Dande has undergone various changes and alterations. There can be different verses that are being used. Dande can be happy and sad, depending on the person or circumstances it is sung. Incustomary Dande,when a Dande verse is sung, it is expected from the spectators to answer “Ai Nobe”. While singing, a hat was passed around in which everyone deposited 1 and cent coins, to bring good luck. Today people tend to believe that the more money you give, the more money you will get in the coming year. In the beginning only three instruments were used, which were, a violin, a tambu (drum) and a wiri (a metallic rasp).Or a rasp made out of calbas was used.

ground with charcoal, then mixed with white rum and then filtered. Nowadays other ingredients like cane sugar or sometimes mint leaves are added and artificial red or green coloring is used. Another formula contains anis seed, canela bast, rum and sugar. On New Year’s Eve, the singers practice one last time and go home just before midnight, to receive the blessings from their parents or elderly. At home they eat some soup and boyo (cake) and toast, before heading out to wish the people the best for the New Year. It used to be customary to have Dande until January 6 (Three kings). They would stop at each home and wish the people the best. Afterwards,they would reunite again and divide the money collected. The tradition of Dande,the food and drinks is very typical to Aruba, with great importance to our culture. Dande has a special place in hearts of many and is part of our cultural heritage.This year open your home to Dande.We wish you a Happy NewYear! Sometimes a single drum (tambu) was used or otherwise a double sided (tambor) was used. After a while different instruments made their appearance into the Dande tradition. Examples are the “maraca” or “marimba” (A wooden box covered with several metal plates on a hole in it) “cuarta” (original from Venezuela) and also the guitar and the accordion. The workers from Aruba that went to Cuba (19171922) also brought new instruments, like the guitar and the maraca, which became part of the local musical tradition.

In cooperation with Vilmio Wester Departamento di Cultura Aruba (DCA)

As early as November the musicians start preparing their instruments and everything else they need. Around the island people are eagerly awaiting the 31st and preparing for this tradition. In early days white sand was sprinkled inside or around the home. Also food is prepared. Very traditional boyo (corncakes).Also a beef (goat and sheep) stew is prepared. When welcoming the singers, traditionally there is rum, Bols, Coeicoei and other liquors. The most famous local distilled liquor is “Coecoei ” that has a very distinctive red color, derived from the red fruits of the tuna cactus the most important ingredient is the syrup which was made of the white heart of cucu leaves (Agave sisalina) barbequed under the

A Place to Shop & Live Rejuvenating the Heart of Aruba

Almost three years ago, the director of DOW (Departmemt of PublicWorks) Jossy Figaroa, stood on Plaza Daniel Leo in front of the fountain and inaugurated together with the minister the project that would rejuvenate Oranjestad. Public, merchants and government agreed that the “face” should be updated. From an outdated hot and sticky Main Street, with little trees, lots of traffic to a shopping oasis. Downtown of any city in the world is synonymous with a bustling atmosphere, yet with places that you can escape the hectic city life. From Moscow to New York, from Paris to Rome you’ll find shaded parks or squares in between busy shopping zones. Oranjestad was not always the capital of Aruba, in fact the first capital of Aruba was Savaneta, close to the shore and the Dutch Marine Headquarters. Over time with political and governmental changes, Oranjestad became the center of power and developed itself. And like any developing city, expan- “My favorite part in Downtown is sion was next to or on top of the where you can look from Mainstreet older buildings. directly to the restored Courthouse!” At the beginning of the project, we knew we’d encounter some problems, since we had to excavate the old Main Street to make room for the foundation of the track for the streetcar, recalls Jossy, we came across old pipes and a lot of other odd items. And first we had to examine these to see if we wouldn’t cut off by accident a septic flow from one of the adjacent buildings. Then we could start with preparing the street for the street car. Before we could lay the foundation, we had to make sure the drainage would be perfect so we installed with help of professional contractors new pipes and mapped these to ensure a good flow of water drainage, for that rainy day.

Many people don’t know this, but the sewer water from downtown Oranjestad travels all the way to the Bubaliplas, where it is purified and re-used to water the greens in of Tierra Del Sol & Divi Links. Rain water is drained directly into the Laguna along the governor’s Residence. With this project we have reconstructed that drainage.

As DOW we then assisted the contractors with laying the foundation of the streetcar and the rails, plus of course the rejuvenated layout of

the Main Street. I really like the project, since it has given us as the department of DOW the opportunity to learn and grow, since this is the first time we got to work with a streetcar. Secondly I like the project since it rejuvenates downtown Oranjestad, not only infrastructural, but we have seen that the merchants have taken pride in their locations to (remember the old real estate saying location location location?) and have renewed or improved their buildings too. All of which resulting in the way downtown Oranjestad should be right now; the heart of Aruba, bustling with the right mix of tourists and locals, shopping living and enjoying life on our happy island. Happy holidays from us at DOW.”

The Home of Justice

After three years of restoring and renovation, this year lady Justice will once again be seated in Downtown Oranjestad. This monuments is located one of the main roads that traverse Oranjestad, the Emanstraat or previously the Noordstraat. The historic building, build in 1934, was officially inaugurated on march 1936, after it became apparent that the governor’s residence and the central government’s office building located on the Zoutmanstraat, became too small. As you can see on the picture, in front of the building was a small park, called the Willem de Zwijgerpark, and used for amongst other things, like the festive inauguration .Currently this former park is the parking lot in front of the courthouse. And as it goes with history, there are plans to once again restore the park to its former glory. Over the years different facades and wings were added to the buildings, to house the post office that had to move in few years plus the civil registry and other governmental services., but over the years it became evident that the building was not fit to house that many services at once. A small but significant detail is perhaps the fact

that the facade design came from the drawing tables of the Aruban department of Public Works ( D.O.W.), and not like the previous buildings from the architects in Curacao. When restoring the old courthouse, inside the court room , an old well was found which will remain visible below a glass slate. Also, In the adjacent wings, remains of historic lavatories were found. These will be marked in the floor. Also original flooring, the big terrazzo tiles , with their distingtive grey and white pattern were found underneath three layers of flooring. The new additions create more room for the staff of the courthouse to work, just like any of the other monumental additions in Oranjestad will help sustain the seat of justice in our capital for many more years to come.

Passion to Paint

With 2013 around the corner (really already?), everyone is busy preparing for the final festive days of the season.

And as is tradition everyone is (re-)painting their home or touching up. One of the most important parts of painting is choosing the right color. Warm bright tones can make any room look brighter, where colder hues like blue or aqua have a refreshing quenching feel. And luckily for us living in the bright sunny tropics, it looks like the color experts are expecting a revival of the bright next year, as an extra celebration for the New Year. You might have noticed that every home has a different “Use Color to create hue, bringing life and ambiance to the island with its unique color scheme.

As is customary on New year’s eve and way before, our beloved rock will explode with fireworks in all kinds of colors and sizes. Most famous is of course the almost a mile long pagara ( a row of firecrackers) in front of the Governmental building in Downtown Oranjestad on Dec 31rd, which as you can guess is quite the spectacle.

Traditionally most that most companies set off their version of the pagara, where as a general thumb of rule the more firecrackers the better, since this will mean more prosperity in the New Year. Here are a few tips to keep you ( and you home) safe during the holidays:

Decorating your home Do not leave candles unattended Check regularly for broken bulbs on your X-mas lights use weatherproof extension cords for outdoor decorating Use non-flammable decorations Do not overload outlets If you have a real tree water it regularly Make sure your smoke alarm is working and have a fire extinguisher at hand

Setting off fireworks Read the instructions carefully Use a igniter, rather than an open flame Point your fireworks away from homes and people ( especially here take the wind into account!) Place arrows in a bucket filled with sand and make sure spinning objects, like such as Charlotte wheels are attached properly Keep a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher close Do not try to re-ignite fireworks that have not gone off If you have any pets, make sure they are prepared by visiting the Vet or providing them a safe haven.

Embellish your home! Empresa Italo Arubano

Specializing in tiles, we are known for our wide variety of tiles in different sorts, shapes, colors and textures. Our trained experts can help you choose the tile, structure and color that is best suited for your needs. Tiles can be used both indoors and out to beautify virtually any surface. A tile nowadays is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such ceramic, stone, metal or even glass. Tiles are generally used for covering roofs, floors and walls or other objects such as tabletops. Another category are the ceiling tiles, made from lightweight materials such as perlite, wood ad mineral wood. The word is derived from the French word tuile, which is, in turn, from the Latin word tegula, meaning a roof tile composed of baked clay. In English the word can mean any sort of construction tile or similar object. At Empresa Italo Arubano we carry amongst others marble from Italy, natural stone, granite and ceramic tiles in different sizes, colors and structures. The word ‘ceramic’ comes from the Greek word ‘keramos’ meaning pottery, it is related to an old Sanskrit root meaning ‘to burn’ but was primarily used to mean ‘burnt stuff ’. Ceramic tiles are used in different applications, but are most known for their decorative value, such as Delft’s blauw. Decorative tile-work was invented in the near east, where it has enjoyed a longer popularity and assumed a greater variety of design than

anywhere in the world. The Romans introduced tile making in Western Europe as they occupied territories. Through Europe decorative ceramic tiling found its way to North and South America. The Ceramic tiles were too expensive for utilitarian purposes in the Colonies and were found almost exclusively in the homes of the wealthy. Today you don’t have to be wealthy to decorate your home to your needs. Over the last decades the technologies have been developed and nowadays the selection of tiles is broader than hand painted ceramic tiles. Bigger sizes, textures, longer durability and or imitation natural tiles are now available to the wider public. We carry tiles from Europe, South America, and the Far East. And we constantly keep following the latest trends to provide you with the best choice. If you’re looking for something specific, feel free to ask our expert advice. We, at Impresa Italo Arubano, can help find the perfect match for any style you have in mind be it rustic, modern, tropical Caribbean or to the latest styleAnd we can help you calculate the amount of tiles you need and plan the project of beautifying your house into your perfect home, since we carry all accessories you need to install the tiles in your home and we can even do it for you.
