­­­W elcome to the spring Issue of Reside e are thrilled to be in Canada for the Sotheby’s International W Realty Global Networking Event. This

is the first time that our network’s biggest branding conference is held in Canada and we love celebrating in the beautiful city of Vancouver and meeting colleagues from all over the world. Working, exploring, and learning together reminds us how interconnected we all are, no matter where we call home. And that’s exactly the connection we strive for in the pages of RESIDE®. In this issue we travel across borders and time zones in search of the extraordinary. And, no surprise, we find extraordinary in abundance in Canada, starting with an architectural marvel right here in West Vancouver. Take a tour of Eppich House II, a daring glassand-steel residence that may be “of the moment” but is built to last. The design by legendary Canadian architect Arthur Erickson is so audacious, the home feels a little like a private museum—in the best possible sense. On the other side of the country is another interpretation of home, Chelster Hall, on the shores of Lake Ontario. It was built in 2006 but inspired by England’s historic countryside manors. Today’s architects not only are thinking about building better homes, but also about building better cities. We introduce you to three of Canada’s

leading architectural firms breaking new ground in sustainability, social activism, and inclusiveness. While we’re on the subject of groundbreaking, the works of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo certainly fit the bill. A historian once said Kahlo was “first a legend, then a myth, and now a cult figure.” We’ll share some of the best places around the world to see her boundary-busting paintings. Our search for the extraordinary landed us in the middle of the New Nordic Movement, locally sourced and fearlessly innovative cuisine that has infiltrated renowned restaurants from Portland, Ore., to La Paz, Bolivia. Read on to find out what the buzz is about. For the timepiece enthusiasts among us, we showcase the latest collection of limited-edition watches on the market. It’s an impressive group, with models inspired by the derring-do exploits of mountain climbers, ocean-plunging divers, and circumnavigating pilots. We thank you for taking the ride with us.

eautiful, bold, and beneficial are the catchwords this season in the worlds of art, architecture, and design. B We’re decorating our bodies, building healthy environ-

ments, and brightening our rooms with rainbows of color. Here’s what’s happening.

Jewelry designers are creating abstract adornments that double as wearable works of art. One such maker is Solange Azagury-Partridge of Britain. Her pieces, which she calls “sculpture for the body,” are dazzling and dynamic and sell for thousands, even hundreds of thousands, of pounds. Scribbles, one of the newer collections of gemstone rings and mix-and-match-make-your-own earrings under her Solange brand, is inspired by her doodles. “There’s always something behind each piece; it’s not just what you see,” she says. “The random shapes of scribbles are fascinating and reflect the stones’ internal inclusions. Your eye is attracted by the shapes and color combinations.” Azagury-Partridge developed a love for jewelry while working at a gallery specializing in 20th century decorative arts and vintage jewelry. In 1987, she designed her first piece, an uncut diamond in a gold bombe setting, as her own engagement ring. Tilda Swinton and Lady Gaga are among the celebrities who wear her art, which is in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Her Hotlips collection of rings shaped like bee-stung lips is reminiscent of Salvador Dali’s sexy Mae West Lips Sofa, and her Supernature collection was inspired by the five ancient elements—fire, air, water, earth, and ether. “I make things you don’t know you want until you see them,” she says. Architecture

A healthy house means healthy inhabitants. That’s the credo of the emerging wellness architecture movement. “As an architect, I have the power to shift your cognitive function and your mood through the use of materials, colors, textures, and layouts,” says architect Veronica Schreibeis Smith, who helped coin the term in 2015 when she founded

the Wellness Architecture Initiative. “I and other architects are using these skills to enhance human and planetary well-being by reimagining every room of the house.” Wellness spaces in homes around the world incorporate eco-friendly, natural materials and innovative, multifunctional designs that encourage a healthy lifestyle. For instance, a kitchen prototype created by Schreibeis Smith’s firm, Vera Iconica Architecture in Jackson, Wyo., is designed to make cooking a nutritious and fun family ritual. People pick produce from a hydroponic garden that grows on a wall and store foods in transparent, programmable climatecontrolled cabinets made of natural oak. For a private client with a young child, her firm designed a flexible tea room/game room/meditation room/yoga room/ playroom that encourages family time and healthy activities. The real beauty of the movement, Schreibeis Smith says, is that it shows “you can change everything when you change the environment.” Design

Interior designers are no longer taking a neutral stance on color. They are replacing beiges and grays with bold hues in exciting combinations. “The trend comes after years of preferred neutral colors introduced by the International School of Architecture, then repeated ad nauseam, particularly in the corporate business world and hotels,” says London-based interior designer John Stefanidis, whose name is synonymous with the original use of vibrant color. He says interiors around the world finally are finding their true colors. “There are fantastic explosions of color in India and China and everywhere in Africa,” he says. The colors are cropping up not only in furnishings but also on walls. “I use splashed paint, layer upon layer, to give depth,” he says. “Or stenciling. I’m very proud of the lacepainted walls I created for a bedroom in a Florida house.” Stefanidis, who has a cosmopolitan clientele, says his color sense is influenced, in part, by his travels: “Exposure to design, color, and architecture as well as the internet and apps like Instagram—it’s all very inspiring.” 7


FOOD RETHOUGHT Chef Julian Bentivegna merges fine dining and sustainability with An innovative vegetable- forward menu By Alexandra Breen a crisp afternoon in early January, and chef Julian is keeping warm inside the construction zone Ithatt’sBentivegna is his soon-to-be-complete restaurant, Ten, in Toronto’s

trendy Brockton Village. His nerves and excitement are palpable as the space slowly takes its final shape. In just a few short weeks, the 10-seat chef’s table will be installed, the millwork complete, and the doors will open to a years-in-themaking dream. “I knew I wanted to do this long before I had any other responsibilities or any reasons not to,” he says, acknowledging the enormous effort involved in bringing this project to fruition. At 25 years old, this young talent from Calgary hopes to offer Toronto an extraordinary new vegetableforward culinary experience and, in the process, change the way we think about food, fine dining, and sustainability. The name Ten reflects the 10-course tasting menu that Bentivegna will be serving to only 10 guests at a time. “It’s also a reminder to my staff and myself that we’re only serving 10 people at once, so there’s no excuse not to make it exceptional.” For the past six months Bentivegna has been mulling over the fine details. He has teamed up with Toronto’s LloydLondon Architects, known primarily for its non-commercial spaces, to create an interior that works with the existing framework to evoke a casual, intimate, and airy vibe with exposed brick, beautiful millwork, white-oak accents, and minimalist décor. Bentivegna has also been hosting a series of buzzy pop-up dinners at diverse locations, ranging from local restaurants such as The Depanneur, also in Brockton Village, to a sleek loft he found on Airbnb (the latter served as inspiration for Ten’s final aesthetic). The goal is twofold—to get people excited about his concept and to research and develop his season-based menu. The events were hugely successful, he reports: “Everyone was full, happy and so excited about some of the courses they had.” He was then able to nail down his winter menu, which will feature novel creations such as sweet potato with mulberry and coriander; scallops, fennel and blood orange; and basil ice cream paired with grapes.

His philosophy surrounding food traces back to his upbringing with a Sicilian mother who lovingly made home-cooked meals daily. “The most important thing about cooking to me is that someone prepared the food for you as an act of love,” he says. At Ten, night after night, guests can expect to be served personally by Bentivegna and sommelier Jennifer Hunter (Bisha Hotel Toronto). “If [guests] have any questions, they can ask me. I pride myself on my approachability,” he says, adding he believes that, at its core, fine dining is really just about hospitality and amazing food. Having a comfortable, casual atmosphere serves to heighten the experience and elevate the dishes to a position of prime focus. Bentivegna has been fortunate to take notes from some of the industry’s finest, including Paul Bocuse (Restaurant Paul Bocuse in Lyon), Paula Navarrete (Momofuku’s Kojin in Toronto), and Patrick Kriss (Alo in Toronto), but it’s the months he spent working with Curtis Duffy at the three-Michelin-star Grace in Chicago that serve as his greatest inspiration: “His kitchen ran like a machine. It was very quiet. All the systems were in place. It was perfect.” It was at Grace that Bentivegna witnessed firsthand how vegetables could be transformed into rave-worthy creations in a 12-course tasting menu. The experience served as sort of a finishing school. “To [work at a] threeMichelin-star restaurant, you have to know how to cook, but it also ingrains in you these systems that take you to the next level in terms of the detail that is needed,” he says.

Sustainability also plays a huge role in the decision to give vegetables their starring role. Influenced by Dan Barber’s book, The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food, Bentivegna believes in taking a rational and informed approach to food. You don’t have to cut out meat entirely from your diet. “It is such an amazing ingredient to work with,” he points out. “You would be limiting yourself [otherwise].” However, to Bentivegna it makes sense to cut back significantly when you look at how many resources go into a pound of meat versus any vegetable. Developing relationships with local farmers such as Joyfully Organic Farm in Stouffville, Ont., and taking full advantage of all of the amazing produce grown in this province is his priority: “Vegetables have so much flavor, and if you can treat them with a lot of respect they can be elevated.”

His kitchen has intentionally been designed with very little fridge space to minimize food waste. The idea is to have food come in and be used the same day. Any leftover produce will be donated to Food Rescue (, a Second Harvest program which partners with various nonprofits across Toronto. His hope is that he can create a critically acclaimed restaurant with staying power that transcends what he serves on your plate. “What I am interested in being known for and hopefully what will end up happening is that I can do so much more than just the food,” he explains. “I’m always asking in the back of my mind: How can this place be valuable to Canadian food and the eradication of hunger? I think fine dining can play a pivotal role in that.” Playing his part, Bentivegna is ready to lead the change when it comes to food and create a 10 out of Ten. 11


TRULY EPPICH Hidden amid the trees in West Vancouver is an architectural marvel that’s built to last By Yuki Hayashi

mong jaw-dropping properties, every so often, one defies categorization as a residential home, making the leap to “landmark” instead. Case in point: Eppich House II. With its dazzling expanse of glass walls and its revolutionary cascading steel-beam frame, this architectural wonder appears like a mirage high on a West Vancouver hillside, nestled between mountain and sea, yet invisible from the road. Water elements add to its mystical quality—a shimmering koi pond, fed by a redirected creek, and an infinity-edge pool that blends into the landscape. One of Canada’s first modernist glass-and-steel homes, the daring residence has hit the prestige real-estate market for the first time, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for discerning design enthusiasts. “The buyer of this home will be someone who appreciates a fine iconic piece of architecture [that] is completely unique. It is really like owning your own private museum,” says listing agent Eric Latta of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. Designed by legendary Canadian architect Arthur Erickson, the circa-1979 masterpiece is the crown jewel of North Shore/ West Vancouver, a region known for its trove of West Coast modernist gems. “Starting in the late 1950s and ’60s, people were developing the North Shore in this ‘crazy’ modernist style. It was an outlier across the bridge from Vancouver and immune from the architectural traditions of the city proper,” says Javier Campos, president of the nonprofit organization Heritage Vancouver. It was within this unique cultural context that Eppich House II was conceived. In steel magnate Hugo Eppich, Erickson found his dream client-cum-partner. “At the time, Erickson was Canada’s most famous architect and recognized worldwide,” Campos says. Eppich, co-owner of custom metal manufacturer Ebco Industries Ltd., in Richmond, B.C., was a materials expert with the latest technology at his disposal.

With the latest technology from Hugo Eppich’s company, Ebco Industries Ltd., at his disposal, architect Arthur Erickson was able to create a cascading, waterfall-like effect using curved steel beams.


A just-released book—Eppich House II: The Story of an Arthur Erickson Masterwork by architecture expert Greg Bellerby—shares interviews with architect Arthur Erickson, owner Hugo Eppich, and others involved in the project.


Ironically, steel wasn’t foremost in Eppich’s mind when he commissioned Erickson. “I wanted something different—concrete or whatever the case,” Eppich said this past November in a virtual home-tour video of his residence. “But since we had a steel fabrication company [as well as] electroplating and upholstery—all these companies in our group—Arthur thought it would be nice to make the house out of steel.” Once convinced, Eppich helped Erickson push the boundaries of residential architecture: “Usually, steel houses are just [linear], but in our case, he wanted to…make it roll into the landscape.” Manufacturing the home’s seemingly effortless flowing curves—from roofline to balconies to bespoke interior furnishings—took considerable effort. Eventually, Eppich’s manufacturing team perfected the curved steel beams and other material improvements necessary to meet the project’s demanding specifications. “We did everything. We had a heavy machine shop, a heavy fabrication shop, light metal fabrication—we had it all,” Eppich says. This extraordinary wherewithal gave his builders access to materials not available elsewhere. The result: a curvilinear 7,000-square-foot split-level home that Latta describes as “gently cascading down the [1.2-acre] property, creating a waterfall-like feeling.” Its wall-to-wall windows and glass doors seamlessly merge indoor and outdoor spaces, showcasing furniture designed and fabricated by Erickson and Eppich’s respective teams. The custom living, dining, and bedroom sets channel a midcentury modern vibe and color palette. Echoing

the house itself, bold curves and steel abound, ranging from a gleaming chrome-and-orange dining set to sculptural sofas in a distinctive mustard hue. Arthur Erickson is among British Columbia’s most cherished creative talents, and his stamp is all over Vancouver, including public landmarks such as the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver Law Courts Complex, and Robson Square. And yet, the renowned architect reportedly considered Eppich House II his “most complete” endeavor. Preservationists are often concerned about the fate of architectural gems, but Latta is confident in this glass-andsteel house’s staying power: “It is a truly unique landmark home recognized globally for its significance. It was built to last generations.” (2)

Paint it Black How to use the darkest shade in a way that’s chic and eye- catching

hading your walls in black may not be the first thing that comes to mind S when you’re considering paint colors. But black has a daring all its own that can bring character and chicness to your space. “The result is both unexpected and incredibly sophisticated,” says Andrea Magno, a Benjamin Moore color and design expert. “Black has an interesting effect on the walls of a room because the corners and shadows are obscured more than if a midtone or pastel color is used,” Magno says. “This can be used as a visual trick to give the space a less-defined appearance and can make a room feel a bit more expansive.” Black walls can also bring coziness. “Dark walls coupled with dramatic lighting create an instant air of luxury and sumptuousness,” says Karen Howes, CEO and founder of London-based interior-design firm Taylor Howes.

Choosing the Right Room

It’s important to consider the function of the room and also the time of day that you spend the most time there, Howes says. Great candidates for black walls include rooms used primarily as evening spaces or those that aren’t reliant on task lighting, such as home cinemas and dining rooms, she says. In a media room, black walls help absorb the light and won’t distract from the room’s main function, Howes says. “We also find using darker tones in dining rooms helps create a luxurious feel in the evening when our clients are entertaining,” she says. “Often the rooms that are most successful have a balance between light and dark—where black walls are paired with a light floor color or furniture done in neutrals and whites,” Magno adds. 16

Accent Versus All Four Walls

“Black can be a superb choice, as it allows you to play with contrasts,” says Nicolas Adnet of Studio MHNA, an architecture and design firm in Paris. “For example, if the rest of the room is done in pale or pastel palettes, painting a wall black can add drama and create atmosphere.” A single black wall can also give character and structure to a space and be used to highlight furniture or a collection of art, Adnet notes. If used as an accent, Magno says, it’s important that it creates a focal point and architecturally makes sense in the room. For instance, accent walls work well when a room has a wall with a fireplace or millwork, or when there is an alcove or other feature worthy of attention, she says. Adding Dimension

Black walls can handle patterned accessories or upholstery. “The black will tend to recede, causing the pattern to advance or be more eye-catching,” Magno says. Repeating black in patterns also helps tie the look of the room together. “For instance, many materials used for countertops— whether marble, granite, or quartz—have black running through them and can instantly create a visual connection between the walls and other features in the room,” Magno says. Perfect Finish

The finish you choose for the paint can have different effects on the space. A matte black has a soft quality, while a high gloss will add reflection and drama. “Using a semigloss or high-gloss finish works well in dark spaces, as it helps to bounce the light around,” Howes says. “We tend to combine different finishes in one space to get a nice balance.” Using Trims Well

Often rooms with walls painted black have white or off-white trim for a clean look, Magno notes. “Black looks great when used in a space with neutral or white wainscoting or cabinetry because the contrast is striking and chic,” she adds. For a sophisticated look, she recommends painting walls and trim or millwork in one black hue, and either using the same finish on both surfaces or using a lower sheen on the walls, such as a matte finish and a semigloss or high gloss on the trim. 17

Pearls Make a Comeback How designers — and customers — are changing the look of the classics 18

Source/Credit text: Credit information goes right here



fashion runways were proof. “There were a lot of pearls from influential designers like Chanel and Gucci on the runways,” says Karen Giberson, CEO of the Accessories Council. They featured “bold mixes, layers, large sizes, fun colors.” London-based pearl stringer Renata Terjeki, who designs, restrings, and restores pearl jewelry for clients around the world, is seeing a rising popularity in modern styles, such as long necklaces and pearl tassels. “The great thing about tassels is that you can make pendants, earrings, and rings out of them,” she says. And combining them with metal appeals to many different types of consumers. “You can put a pearl tassel pendant on an 18-carat white gold chain or on a long pearl necklace and you’ll have two completely different looks,” she says. Faux pearls are being used more on apparel—around necklines, tracing pockets, decorating the heel of a shoe. Styling for Everyday Wear

perfect string of pearls often recalls images of style legends, such as Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn. Now pearls are appealing to a younger generation and gaining popularity in part because designers are imagining new ways of wearing them. “There’s an emergence of younger designers breaking the traditional boundaries of classic styles with pearls,” says Hisano Shepherd, a Los Angeles– based jewelry designer for a company called little h. “From the early 1900s through the 1950s, the most coveted pearls were perfectly round, white pearls worn as choker-length necklaces or stud earrings,” says jeweler and designer April Higashi, owner of Shibumi Gallery in Berkeley, Calif. And these traditionalstyle pearls were staples the world over. “In Japan, women were gifted with pearl studs and pearl strand necklaces for coming-of-age and wedding gifts,” Shepherd says. But that’s changing.

A Fashion - Forward Focus

Today’s pearls aren’t limited to simple strands or studs, and the 2019 Spring

“Millennials are making pearls more casual by taking the primness out of them and wearing them in cool, new ways,” says Marion Fasel, founder and editorial director of The Adventurine, an online fine-jewelry magazine. “The thing now is to wear them with Adidas tees and distressed denim—more everyday than special occasion,” says Amy Elliott, columnist for jewelry-trade magazine JCK and fine-jewelry expert for the Bridal Council. “The younger generation is responding to what women have always loved about pearls: They go with everything, light up your skin with a subtle glow, and will never go out of style,” Elliott says. But young consumers “are less into the strands of perfectly matched Akoyas and more into oblong, amorphous, baroque shapes—the ‘imperfect’ pearls.” They can be “classic or very artsy,” Higashi says. Designing for a New Generation

Designers are taking a fresh approach and using unique material mixes, such as pearls on leather, gunmetal, or rose gold, Giberson says. Mixing pearls with colored stones is a new way to string them. Designer Anna Sheffield of Anna Sheffield Fine Jewelry, based in New York and Los Angeles, combines pearls with other gems like moonstone and black, gray, and champagne diamonds. She also blends classic pearl designs with different metals—one pearl stud earring and one gold spike for its mate, for example, or classic studs with yellow- or rose-gold halos for a more modern way of pairing them. “But no matter how designs are changing, as Jackie Kennedy once said, ‘Pearls are always appropriate,’ ” Terjeki says.

entered a retreat where all stress and worry seem to disappear. Once you’re past the wide front doors, a magnificent chandelier comes into view. Hanging from a domed ceiling some 30 feet above you, it’s in perfect elegant symmetry with the custom oval Persian carpet underfoot. Just ahead of you are vistas of Lake Ontario sparkling in the distance. On a cold winter day, you can see the mist rising from Niagara Falls. Represented by Paul Maranger, Christian Vermast, and Fran Bennett, senior vice presidents of sales with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Chelster Hall is without a doubt one of the most striking residences in Canada. The estate, which was completed in 2006, sits on about 4,000 square meters (44,000 square feet), taking up three lakeshore lots. Much of its appeal is the uniqueness of its size. It’s likely one of the last homes in the country built on such a scale. Equally remarkable is the story of its origins. Chelster Hall is the singular vision of Hugo Powell. The former CEO of Labatt and Interbrew, Powell’s long list of achievements includes two World Series titles (Labatt owned the Toronto Blue Jays when they won in 1992 and 1993) and a Belgian knighthood. Retired since 2002, Powell was in New York on 9/11 for investor meetings. He was on his way to one at 9 o’clock at

the World Trade Center’s North Tower when the building was attacked, just 15 minutes before his meeting was to begin. Powell immediately returned to his hotel in Midtown Manhattan, where he witnessed the second plane crash. The experience changed his outlook forever, including toward the home where he wanted to spend time with his wife and daughter. “That event gave me cause for reflection. This felt like an opportunity to create calm and space and privacy,” he says. Powell was very involved in the design and construction of Chelster Hall, building his home with heart through the expertise of local artisans and contractors whenever possible. Its façade was modeled after Blickling Hall in Norfolk, England — the birthplace of British monarch Anne Boleyn — a historic site where, Powell says, he spent many happy hours visiting with his family while growing up. “The fact that it is now 450 years old and still looking marvellous inspired me to a design and construction [that will] last,” he explains. Like Blickling, Chelster was built in the style of the Jacobean era, which originated in 16th-century England. Chelster is further characterized by its classical Elizabethan lines with an Italian twist, used by Canadian architect William Hicks to highlight features such as oversized windows and imposing towers, typical Jacobean elements. The interior is equally Anglo-inspired, with a library, stately fireplaces and a billiard room. A chapel dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi sits on the lawn. “It was my intent that the home would look 100 years old when newly constructed and that it would still look 100 years old when we look back in 400 years’ time,” Powell says. The Jacobean style provides an immediate sense of calm, something Powell seeks out in Chelster’s classic study and two-story library, which provides a home for generations of the family’s prized accomplishments, from sports trophies to photos of Powell with Fidel Castro. Yet, even with those royal proportions, Chelster Hall maintains the warm feel of a family home (it was named after the Powells’ two golden retrievers, Lady Chelsea and Manchester), with countless cozy nooks and crannies to curl up in, such as the doll-filled playroom on the lower level. Each of the six bedrooms has its own theme, like the purple Maharaja Room, a nod to Powell’s upbringing in India. His long-term vision for Chelster Hall ensured the home would have everything its future inhabitants could desire. That means modern features, including a 12-car garage tucked away underground, a tennis court, a fitness room, a spa, and two pools­—indoors and out— the former of which runs on a chlorine-free filtration system. The lower level takes the concept of the rec room up several notches to house a bowling lane, home cinema, dance floor, and a Tuscan wine cellar with some 7,000 bottles. Chelster Hall’s most virtuous feature, however, is its role as a sanctuary. Its timelessness offers a true refuge from the demands of everyday life. It’s a calm that washes over you as soon as you arrive, and it’s one you won’t soon want to leave. “Whatever happens in the day, when you come home the gates close and you can leave it behind, if you choose,” Powell says. But with his daughter and wife now busy running their own clothing businesses, the decision was made to move on. The time has come for Chelster Hall to become home to a new family. It’s a move that Powell makes with great perspective: “Some would describe it as downsizing. I might say, ‘rebalancing.’” 21


New Nordic Cuisine Food from Scandinavia inspires high - end restaurants around the world

ot long ago, food from Scandinavia was considered something of a N punchline. Dining enthusiasts assumed

the best one could get on a Nordic plate was a chunk of dried walrus blubber or a fried carrot. How times have changed. From Los Angeles to London, the tenets of the New Nordic Movement—locally sourced, health-conscious, fearlessly inventive—have infiltrated many of the world’s most renowned restaurants. It started with Noma, the nowfamous eatery launched in 2004 in Copenhagen. Occupying a 19th-century warehouse with an unassuming, rustic exterior, its focus has been on reinventing Danish cuisine by cutting out foreign fluff. Noma co-founder Claus Meyer drew up a manifesto, aspiring to nothing short of a new Nordic culinary culture. Due to the region’s long winters, pickling, preserving, smoking, and salting have become common. Noma has received two Michelin stars and was ranked “the World’s Best Restaurant” several times. Most importantly, chefs around the globe have 22

absorbed the principles of Meyer’s New Nordic Movement and applied them to their own cooking, often beautifully. At Gustu, a restaurant Meyer opened in 2013 in La Paz, Bolivia, head chef and native Bolivian Marsia Taha sees the New Nordic philosophy as a means to show off her own country’s cuisine. “Part of our mission is to boost a sense of national pride for what Bolivia is and what Bolivia produces,” Taha says. That starts with exactly what the New Nordic Movement emphasizes: “Simplicity, elegance, and respect for each product, whose history we have the commitment to tell, as well as preserving the cultural and ancestral significance in each dish,” she says. Two examples off the Gustu menu: rhea (a kind of Bolivian ostrich) tartare with capers and maca emulsion; and Amazonian fish with yuca zonzo and coconut. Now, from Portland, Ore., to New York, posh, hygge-ish restaurants churn out Nordic and Nordic-inspired fare. At Brooklyn’s Aska, Swedish chef Fredrik Berselius creates Scandinavian masterpieces with ingredients gathered from around the American Northeast. Think oysters and kelp garnished with salted green gooseberries, and pickled chanterelle mushrooms served with lichen and caramelized cream. For Berselius, the New Nordic Movement “reminds chefs and cooks to pay attention to where they are, to respect their heritage and at the same time push gastronomy forward.” New Nordic’s influence has seeped into rural areas too. At Single Thread, a Michelin-starred restaurant in northern California’s Sonoma County, much of the intricate Japaneseinspired menu uses produce from its own farm. The Lost Kitchen, a French-inspired, seasonally opened place in the tiny Maine town of Freedom, uses local ingredients exclusively. Demand is so high that reservation requests must be made by snail mail, to be decided in a lottery. And in the far-flung Faroe Islands of Denmark, chef Poul Andrias Ziska earned a Michelin star with Koks, a restaurant focused entirely on items available on and around the islands and often using traditional preparations. The results include fermented, wind-dried lamb; mahogany clams; and sea urchin with pickled parsley stems. Above all, the New Nordic Movement has inspired cooks to care more about place. If its ideas have shown consumers anything, it’s that good food need not have traveled far.

Marie kondo’s 5 favorite Things The organization guru on the Items that spark joy in her home Books with purpose

A Treasure From Childhood

Fear not—the KonMari Method allows for nostalgia. Kondo demonstrates that old mementos can still serve a function, sometimes when used in new ways. “I received this sewing box for Christmas when I was a little girl,” she recalls. “It’s in my bedroom—near my vanity. I now use it to store makeup, so I get to experience the joy it brings me every day.”

“I have several notebooks, each for a different purpose: one for ideas, one for dreams, one for problem A New solving, etc.,” Must- Have Kondo says. “Rose water is my “They’re located recent discovery. at the end of my It has antibookshelf in the inflammatory hallway, and I properties and carry them with the scent is subme in my purse lime,” she says. as needed.” “I keep a bottle in my bathroom and I use it primarily as a facial toner.”

arie Kondo may be petite—4 feet, 7 inches—but she packs a real punch. MThat became clear when the Japanese organization wizard’s

2011 book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, became an international bestseller. Now she’s gone viral once more, thanks to Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, a TV series on Netflix. Her “KonMari Method” of decluttering is mercilessly precise yet oddly poetic (you keep the items—and only those— that “spark joy,” then thank the others before tossing them out). Kondo, 34, lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two daughters. Speaking through an interpreter, Kondo describes the five items in her home that, yes, spark joy. Crystal Clear

“I admire crystals for their purification properties as well as their exquisite beauty,” Kondo says. Spiritual charms, talismans, and statues often wind up tucked away in a box or drawer, but Kondo recommends making a “personal altar” of such items in a corner or on a bookshelf.

Nightlife in Rio: Where to Eat and Drink From a booming nightclub to a down -to - earth bar, where to party in the brazilian city

Carioca da Gema

Go to this nightclub, built inside a former mansion, for some old Rio vibes and impressive samba bands. It is located in the always-hopping Lapa neighborhood, a formerly rundown area transformed into a lively nightlife hub. Paving the way for the influx of clubs and bars, Carioca de Gema was one of the first to open there, in 2000. That it continues to flourish today in the face of lots of competition is a true testament. Armazém São Thiago

Set in a 1920s-style warehouse, this institution of a bar (founded circa 1919) features some mean caipirinhas, Brazil’s national cocktail of cachaça, sugar, and lime. Considered a botequo, a neighborhood bar, it is in Santa Teresa, Rio’s bohemian neighborhood. Their cold chopp, or draft beer, goes a long way in combating that infamous Rio heat.


Rio Scenarium Pavilhão da Cultura

This multilevel dance club, featuring live bands playing various kinds of Brazilian music, from samba to forró to sertanejo, might be the king of high-energy nightlife in Rio. Housed in an old-fashioned mansion in Rio’s historic center—with stone floors, giant columns, chandeliers, and lots of strange antiques and knick-knacks adorning the walls—there is no lack of character at Scenarium. Get there early for a table and a meal. Patrons can easily spend their whole night here (and much of the morning as well). Coordenadas Bar

For something more low-key, check out this partially open-air spot in Botafogo, a hipster area known for quirky drinking holes. Featuring a sprawling wooden table between walls of ancient-looking

brick and very high ceilings, and partial to chill indie tunes, Coordenadas is a place for boisterous conversation over well-crafted snacks. Make sure to sample the home-brewed beer. Churrascaria Majorica

A long night on the town is best attempted with a full stomach. This can be accomplished easily at this legendary steakhouse in Zona Sul­— a wood-walled, warmly lit, homey place that isn’t afraid to stay up late. For half a century, Churrascaria has been grilling some of the city’s best beef, served simply, usually just with salt, to accentuate the natural taste of the high-quality meat. The restaurant is often full, so reservations are recommended—as are its superb caipirinha cocktails.

Live bands give dance club Scenarium a high-energy vibe.

Canastra Bar

Founded by three Frenchmen, what makes this down-to-earth, open-tothe-street bar unique is its commitment to employing only Brazilian ingredients and products. That means Brazilian wines, Brazilian ham, Brazilian cheeses, etc., offering a deliciously European take on Brazilian cuisine. It seems fitting for a city like Rio, given how much it has been shaped by foreign forces. An extra bonus is its location: right near the plaza in Ipanema, a bustling beachside neighborhood known for its hippie vibe, art galleries, and cafes.



hile the world knows Rio de Janeiro—Brazil’s second-largest city and Instagram darling—simply as Rio, Brazilians prefer another name: Cidade Maravilhosa, the Marvelous City. Indeed, this city of over six million people sparkles with unmatched marvels. From picturesque beaches to steep green peaks and rounded verdant isles, all under the gaze of that iconic and sacred white-stone statue of Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado mountain, there is never a dull scene. But though it shines in sunlight, it pulses under the moon. From warehouse-size nightclubs to underground samba shows to dive bars overflowing with cachaça, a Brazilian rum, there is no dearth of nighttime bustle in the Marvelous City. “The easy-going way of life is what makes the culture of Rio nightlife,” says Marcello Romero of Bossa Nova Sotheby's International Realty. “The pubs and restaurants on the boardwalk overlooking the ocean are always very lively and great places to be.” One just needs to know where to look.


Restoration Hardware’s Evolution to Design Studio


Expect more retail “experiences” from the 40 -year - old brand estoration Hardware is in the business of selling furniture, but these days, the retail experience is more than just R buying products. It’s becoming an entire lifestyle.

Restoration Hardware (4)

In 2016, the brand launched RH Interior Design as well as the interactive RH Design Ateliers across all their retail stores. So not only can consumers come to Restoration Hardware to fill their homes, but they can also rely on internal interior designers—and even bring their own architects and designers to RH workspaces—to give their spaces a point of view and sense of style. “The evolution of our interior-design services positions RH as a leading interior-design firm and demonstrates how our brand can deliver value that transcends just creating and selling product as we move toward conceptualizing and selling spaces,” RH Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman said in a statement. The company, which opened in 1979, is known for luxe weathered antique-style furnishings, lighting, and accessories. But its business model continues to evolve. Last fall, the brand opened its first retail “experience,” a 90,000-squarefoot, six-level gallery dubbed RH New York, in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. The space houses a restaurant, bar, an art installation, all the RH lines—modern, outdoor, baby and child, teen, etc.—as well as an entire floor dedicated to design with RH interior-design offices, client presentation rooms, and state-of-the-art technology that basically makes it a fullscale design firm. “We are designing a seamlessly integrated ecosystem of businesses that amplify and render our brand, and each other, more valuable,” Friedman says. But RH’s expansion isn’t done yet. The company plans to increase the number of new galleries with integrated restaurants, wine vaults, and barista bars from an average of three to five new galleries per year to five to seven per year, with 2019 openings slated in Edina, Minn.; Charlotte, N.C.; Corte Madera, Calif.; San Francisco; and Columbus, Ohio. “We are creating a customer experience that can’t be replicated online…We have total control of our brand from concept to customer. What we are building is extremely rare in today’s retail landscape,” Friedman says.

Restoration Hardware’s 90,000-square-foot retail experience in New York’s Meatpacking District has a restaurant, bar, and lots of furniture and design installations.

Scenterprises perfumes are made from custom ingredients that reflect their owner.

sample vials until they discover their signature smell—whether it’s powdery, herbaceous, heady, or delicate—and go home with a bottle. But some prefer their smell to be so distinctive that they’re willing to invest time, energy, and money in a one-of-akind fragrance. Enter the custom scent, a distinctive blend crafted by a perfumer— or nose—and mixed especially for the wearer. “Personalized, customized fragrances are growing because everyone wants to reflect their individuality,” says Sue Phillips, a fragrance expert who worked with brands such as Burberry, Tiffany, and Trish McEvoy before founding her custom-fragrance company, Scenterprises, based in New York. Perfume wearers splurge on custom scents to brand themselves and be identified by one specific aroma as a reflection of their personality and style, which Phillips says she helps determine. “Recognizing and understanding someone’s olfactive personality comes from looking at the ‘clues’—what colors they wear, how they dress, how expressive their gestures are, their vocabulary,” Phillips explains. She relies on these clues to figure out the type of fragrance a client would wear; “My mission is to create magical fragrances and experiences for people, drop by drop.” While bespoke scents seem to have gained momentum, they’re far from an emerging trend. Custom fragrances have been around for hundreds of years. House of Creed began crafting perfumes for individuals in the 18th century, long before the company bottled scents sold at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. Bettina O’Neill, vice president of

sales at The Harmonist, a Paris-based maker of fragrances sold at several high-end stores, including Barneys New York, says true enthusiasts are looking for a signature scent to carry them through all experiences. “They want to be identified with that scent,” she says. The Harmonist’s feng shui–inspired elixirs (based on the elements of fire, water, earth, wood, and metal) can be layered to create a personalized fragrance. “I add ‘Matrix Metal’ to every scent to give my aroma a modern, metallic edge,” O’Neill says. Like other custom products, the most exclusive fragrances take time, require patience, and come with an additional cost. Goest Perfumes out of Los Angeles creates bespoke fragrances starting at US$2,000 with a lead time of one to four months. “Floris, a London-based perfumery since 1730, will design a custom scent that requires three consultations with a perfumer and takes about six months,” O’Neill explains. Floris charges US$675 for an eau de parfum in an engraved 100 milliliter bottle, and that price includes five refills. For fragrance lovers who want to play with mixing notes, some shops feature a semicustom option. A sales associate will blend the notes while you wait, then you’ll leave the shop with a beautiful bottle in hand. That fragrance probably won’t be as rare as the custom-blended scent that can take months or even a year to develop, but it won’t have such a hefty price tag, either. “It’s more of a simple blend, and it’s rarely the coveted signature scent,” O’Neill explains. For ardent perfume wearers, designing personalized scent is rewarding. Thus, most are willing to wait for a fragrance that’s truly bespoke. “Why wear what everyone else wears,” says Phillips, “when you can create your own?” 31

A Rarity on the River A Contemporary mansion and Frank Lloyd Wright– Designed House Combine for a Timeless Estate overlooking the Potomac By Iyna Bort Caruso

THE FALLS Virginia

Property ID: 252W35 | TTR Sotheby’s International Realty 202-333-1212 Mark Lowham, 703-966-6949, Russell Firestone, 202-271-1701,

hen a home designed by the legendary architect Frank Lloyd W Wright is used as a guest house and not

the main residence of an estate, you know you’ve entered rarified territory. Welcome to The Falls. In the Washington, D.C., power suburb of McLean, Va., the 3.2-acre estate stands above, overlooking the Potomac River. The setting is equal to the main residence itself—a palatial home of sprawling entertainment spaces, private wings, vistas from every angle, and surprises at every turn. The Falls is named for the estate’s location on arguably the river’s most breathtaking and dynamic stretch of waterfalls and rapids. The drama is dawn-through-dark. At night, floodlights illuminate the Potomac. And beyond the sights are the soundscapes. “With the falls comes a wonderful sound, an ambient sound you only get from the water crossing over and spilling down on the rocks,” says Mark C. Lowham, CEO and Managing Partner of TTR Sotheby’s

International Realty in Washington, D.C. “It would be very difficult, if not impossible, to replicate the position of the home on the river given the current permitting process,” he says. In 1999, AOL co-founder James Kimsey purchased the land in this Gold Coast neighborhood of McLean that lies inside the capital beltway, just a bridge away from Washington, D.C. Kimsey would go on to purchase a fish-shaped, threebedroom house on an adjacent site, the Marden House. Named after the original owners, National Geographic writer and photographer Luis Marden and his wife, Ethel, the home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright—one of his very few houses in Virginia. Kimsey painstakingly rehabbed its flagging retaining walls, water-damaged surfaces, and collapsing roof, all the while keeping it faithful to its original character. He used the restored architectural jewel to house guests and to host intimate gatherings. To this day, river views from an 80-foot expanse of floor-to-ceiling windows never fail to awe visitors. Awe is the reaction visitors also have to the main residence Kimsey built for himself. The approximately 25,505-squarefoot home is designed for both privacy and for epic entertaining. The Falls is widely known in prominent circles for “hosting some of the most interesting events in Washington,” Lowham says. Kimsey, who died in 2016, “loved to entertain in really grand ways.” Kimsey had tapped the talents of interior designer Thomas Pheasant, dubbed the “Dean of American Design.” Pheasant’s high-profile projects include Blair House, the president’s guest house. For Kimsey’s residence, Pheasant included custom-made metal doors, light fixtures, and furnishings. Past a gated entrance and separate gatehouse, the threestory home reveals itself slowly from the long driveway. It’s a hideaway in plain sight that serves up a resort lifestyle: tennis court, wine room, garden pavilion, media room, cigar room, outdoor kitchen, infinity pool, and spa. Whatever the activity, a Potomac River backdrop is never far from view. In fact, from the living room that’s nearly two stories of glass, the view incorporates the rushing river, infinity pool, and the Wright-designed house. There are six guest suites, an underground parking garage with room for 30 vehicles, and a master wing “designed so that the owner can host people but still feel separate and secure,” says Russell Firestone, vice president of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty. The master suite offers fob-entry to a library, office, massage room, his-and-hers bathrooms, and a gym. It is accessible by private elevator. Not surprisingly, the bedroom features a balcony that overlooks the river. The home is considered by many to be the finest estate ever offered in the Washington region. “It has had an illustrious history so far, and there’s certainly more to come on that front,” Lowham says. 35


PREP SCHOOL Seasoned real estate brokers’ tips on how sellers can get the most for their homes By Tracey Ho Lung hen it comes to selling that allimportant investment, your W home, there are many factors to con-

sider. In addition to freshening up the paint—a must before listing—here’s what savvy real-estate brokers across Canada recommend. VANCOUVER

Deciding whether to stage, update, or renovate before you sell depends on the type of property you have, says Will McKitka, a senior vice president of sales at Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. “If it’s an older property where the land is 90% of the value, then staging and décor [are] less important. If the property is a $2,000-a-square-foot condo, staging is key because it can strategically make a small space seem larger and show how it can be maximized.”

At the least, opt for a mini-stage. Remove clutter (strollers, toys, personal items, anything pet-related), use the right scale of furniture, paint walls, and clean every horizontal surface. “A coat of white paint on the walls freshens them up, no matter the age of the home,” notes Kevin Hardy, McKitka’s business partner and a senior vice president of sales at Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. Another smart paint trick is to spray-paint dated aluminum windows from the inside, which won’t require permission from the strata corporation. For larger projects such as an outdated kitchen or bathroom, McKitka recommends renovating both if you can, and at the same time. “If you renovate only an outdated kitchen and not the bathroom, it’ll make the unfinished room more noticeable.” Hardy adds, “If

you’re selling a $300,000-to-$600,000 home, you can get away with painting only the cupboards and new hardware. But if it’s a $5-million-to-$7-million home, people’s expectations will have to be met. You’ll lower the value of a high-end property if you do a cheap fix.” Buyers make up their minds within the first 60 seconds of viewing the home, Hardy says. “Improving areas like the exterior, front yard and outdoor space doesn’t have to be costly,” he points out. “They just need to look fresh, relevant and tidy.” Cut back overgrown plants and repaint the stairs, deck, and front door, adds McKitka. “Patios and sundecks, any outdoor spaces, even if they aren’t used a lot—you need to make them relevant again because there is value in that.”

When preparing your property for sale, declutter and depersonalize it to attract a diverse range of buyers. Freshening up the paint is another must.



Even more important than the architectural style is the décor, which should match the identity of the home, notes Ron Dickson, a senior vice president of sales at Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. “Today’s buyer relies on the Internet and great photographs—even 4K videography for their information... the home has to maintain that excitement that the buyer felt when they viewed it online,” Dickson says. “You want to make the home appealing in a blank canvas sort of way, so [apply] a fresh coat of paint and remove clutter and unnecessary furniture, personal photos, and artwork,” he says. And you want to fix cosmetic issues buyers will notice, such as cracked tiles, a broken window, burned-out lightbulbs, carpet stains, and cracks on the walls. If you’re including items like the washer, dryer, air conditioner, and stove, make sure they’re in working order. “[These] all add up to a long list of problems that [buyers] can use to renegotiate the price of the house or cause them to choose another [home],” Dickson points out. Also, keep the home’s price in mind. “If the price point appeals to first-time buyers, you may want to leave things alone, so the buyers can put their own stamp, especially if the rest of the home is clean and [well] maintained. If you’re at an upper price point, do the renovation to create unison in the house and

[to] command more money.” And if you do renovate, leave it to the pros. “Now is not the time to DIY,” Dickson says. TORONTO

In today’s market, buyers either want a place they can transform themselves or they’re looking for a finished home, especially buyers from overseas who may not have the resources or contacts to have renovations done, says Andy Taylor, a Sotheby’s International Realty Canada senior vice-president of sales. When it comes to condominiums or model homes, Taylor recommends giving them some character and swapping out items like basic builders’ light fixtures for customized ones or installing built-in shelves in the living room. “It should look like care and thought have been put into the home,” he says. It’s also advisable to know the challenges your house may pose to a buyer. Providing your own home inspection helps. “The buyer’s perception of issues is usually exaggerated,” Taylor notes. “There may be a small cost to repair something like a broken door handle, but the perception of the buyers is that it’s going to cost them a lot more, as well as their time.” If you do your own home inspection, you can fix the problems before buyers discover them. “You want to take as many [buyers’] objections to the property out of the equation,” Taylor says.

In today’s market, selling a house starts before the buyer steps through the front door. “Buyers are looking online and these pictures are the most important tool when it comes to selling homes,” explains certified real estate broker at Sotheby’s International Realty Quebec, Cassandra Aurora, who is also a registered home stager. “It starts with one image, and in that photo, you have to sell [buyers] on not just the home but [also] the [natural light], the décor, the floors, the ceiling height. And if they like it, they’ll scroll down.” The trick is to keep everything simple, even the décor, so buyers look at everything and not focus on, say, that one couch or the wall color. “I try to use what the seller has, as long as it’s not overwhelming. Then I’ll bring in brighter cushions, a throw, change a floral couch or Persian rug to something neutral,” Aurora says. “When it comes to tackling updates to a kitchen or bathroom, the investment depends on the quality of the material. If [the area is] well maintained, in wood or in good condition, then it may only require a paint job. If it needs a bigger update, then I’m [in]. It may cost you $15,000 for a new bathroom, and while it’s not a guarantee you’ll get that $15,000 back, your home will sell faster.” For photos, visits, and open-house day, Aurora recommends removing personal items, so buyers don’t feel they’re walking into someone else’s space. “We also need to create a certain lifestyle. If the home has a hot tub or outdoor fire pit, for example, capitalize on it. Remove the cover and turn on the hot tub, and position [skewers] with marshmallows next to the fire pit,” she says. “I even place rolled-up towels next to the bathroom sink, reminiscent of a spa experience.” 37

BREAKING GROUND Meet three Canadian architectural firms using their talents to make an impact on society By Shawna Cohen

n this age of mounting social and political activism, architects are making a powerful statement in their own right. IThey’re tackling issues close to their hearts, from helping

the homeless to supporting sustainable food and building better cities through design. We’ve rounded up three leading Canadian architectural firms that are breaking new ground—with a conscience.

The Innovators StudioAC, Toronto

Food trucks and pop-up shops are regular fixtures on Toronto streets. But if architect Jennifer Kudlats has her way, mobile showers will be soon, too. Kudlats is part of the design team at Toronto-based StudioAC (a.k.a. Studio for Architecture and Collaboration) that is transforming a 50-foot trailer into mobile shower units for the homeless, which will move from shelter to shelter this fall. “Many shelters have people come and stay but [have] no shower and plumbing facilities for them to use. The bigger idea [in providing showers] is allowing people to have a moment of dignity,” says Kudlats. “In terms of design, it’s what you’d imagine a high-end residential bathroom to look like, with beautiful light fixtures and in-floor heating.” When approached by World Changers—a Christian char38

itable organization in Toronto— with its groundbreaking idea of a mobile shower program, StudioAC jumped at the chance to help create social change. The studio, known for its sleek, modern living spaces, took inspiration from the Truck Art Project in Spain, which showcases the work of street artists on the exteriors of commercial trucks. StudioAC is also in talks with the City of Toronto on a public-art component to the project—graffiti artists creating original murals on the trailers’ façades. It’s a way of making art accessible to the masses, with a deeper meaning of bringing awareness to the issue of muchneeded facilities for the homeless. “There will be skylights in each of the [truck’s] three showers because we wanted to bring natural light into the space,” says StudioAC’s Reza Nik, who’s heading the pro bono project. “There is a lobby space with towels and lockers. It wasn’t about maximizing the number of people who can use it but allowing individuals to sit down and take a moment.”

The City Citizens Henriquez Partners Architects, Vancouver

This page, top: Bob Matheson

Above: A rendering of the community-oriented reconstruction of Mirvish Village, a local landmark in Toronto. Below: Woodward’s Redevelopment— a mixed-use project in downtown Vancouver—shows what responsible community-geared architecture can offer urban residents. Retail shops, a theater, a daycare facility, and a community center share light-filled spaces with residential housing and a community college.

Gregory Henriquez is on a mission to end homelessness in Vancouver and beyond. In 2010, the managing partner of Henriquez Partners Architects unveiled the revamped Woodward’s Redevelopment in the city’s Downtown Eastside neighborhood. The massive, socially inclusive project—which includes 200 nonmarket housing units as well as retail shops, an urban green space, and a public plaza—was instrumental in transforming a once-gritty area into the hipster haven it is today. Not surprisingly, Henriquez is a proponent of inclusionary zoning, a land-use planning tool that requires affordable housing units to be part of residential developments of a certain size. “We’re very excited about creating more inclusive cities,” says Henriquez, who has since taken on a slew of similar projects, such as Oakridge Centre, a shopping mall-turned-full-on-town center slated for completion in 2025 (it’s the largest development in Vancouver’s history and, in typical Henriquez form, will incorporate both rental- and social-housing units).

For Henriquez, an architect is an activist of sorts—someone who can shape communities and create positive social impact. In his book, Citizen City, published in 2016, he encourages young architects to engage civically and act as a liaison between the needs of a community and the financial incentives of developers. That’s precisely the role Henriquez is playing in Toronto, in one of his most high-profile projects—Mirvish Village (home of the iconic Honest Ed’s discount store, a city landmark that closed in 2016). Currently in pre-construction, the 1.8-hectare (4.4-acre) site will include more than 800 rental units — a rarity in Toronto’s condo-saturated core. “We were chosen to work on this project because of the left-leaning, social-activist neighborhood. It was the most robust community consultation in the city. It took three years,” Henriquez says. “There’s a very large pedestrian-friendly realm with a landscape that’s more like Europe, with piazzas. A whole new concept was derived from listening to the neighborhood, such as pop-up retail along the alley…and we’re talking to [international documentary festival] Hot Docs about playing outdoor cinema at night. It’s really community-oriented.”

Above: A rendering of a restoration project by Woodford Sheppard Architects—O’Brien Farm, now an historic site. Below: While rooted in the style of local traditional buildings, St. Thomas Community Centre in Paradise, Newfoundland, was reinterpreted in a modern context.


Chris Woodford and Taryn Sheppard— founders of Woodford Sheppard Architects in St. John’s, Newfoundland—have mastered the art of building buzzworthy structures while maintaining a site’s unique heritage. Case in point: O’Brien Farm. The 13-hectare (32-acre) property was operated by the O’Brien family for more than 150 years until 1998, when the last descendant passed away. It is now a historic site, and the O’Brien Farm Foundation is aiming to preserve the farm and make it a visitor attraction. Woodford and Sheppard volunteered to help raise funds for the project with a “farmhouse chic” proposal (think traditional-style barn alongside an edgy contemporary learning center for urban farming). “It could have easily become a subdivision of vinyl-clad houses,” Sheppard points out. “We wanted to save the history of the site. Our goal is to celebrate old heritage buildings and contrast it with newer materials.” The team has the additional

challenge of factoring in the harsh climate. “We try to make use of the rugged nature of the Newfoundland coastline—our high wind loads, high snow loads—and find an aesthetic in those details,” Sheppard says. “This is especially true in the rural areas that see an abundance of precipitation.” For one of their recent projects, a residence in the town of Eastport, they focused on making the space energy-efficient by including south-facing glazing on the exterior to keep the house warm and planting local species on the property to block the winds. The duo is excited about O’Brien Farm’s potential from an architectural standpoint, as well as what it will do for the community. “In Newfoundland, most of our food is imported. The site was an actual working farm with chickens and other animals. By turning it into a learning center, we’re helping to stop farming techniques from being lost,” Woodward says. “That kind of an urban farm doesn’t exist in most places anymore. People can now learn how to grow vegetables in their own yard. That is pretty amazing.”


Kahlo has become something of an icon, showing up on the walls of cafes, urban graffiti works, and guitar-case stickers the world over. Even if one doesn’t know who Kahlo was, most will recognize her image. Kahlo became “first a legend, then a myth, and now a cult figure,” wrote the art historian Hayden Herrera in a 1992 biography. Like Che Guevara or Bob Marley, she lives on as a pop-cultural symbol. Here are some of the places in the world to glimpse her art today. The Blue House

Frida Around the World Where to see the famous Mexican artist’s work

Kahlo has become a cultural icon.

Otherwise known as the Frida Kahlo Museum, this sprawling, bright house in Coyoacán, Mexico City, was the home Kahlo shared with painter Diego Rivera. In 1958, four years after her death from a pulmonary embolism at age 47, it was converted into a museum, now one of the most popular in Mexico and the nexus for Frida fandom, with around 25,000 visitors a month. Gawk at her private belongings—her paintbrushes, bookcases, letters, dresses, kitchenware—along with paintings, sketches, and sculptures, all of it wonderfully explained in well-positioned plaques. MoMA

With its boundary-defying, surrealist aesthetics, Kahlo’s work fits in wonderfully at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. There are three of her works there, all self-portraits. Fulang-Chang and I (1937) depicts her with her beloved pet monkey; the other two—My Grandparents, My Parents, and I (Family Tree) (1936) and Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair (1940)—are self-explanatory. National Museum of Women in the Arts


rida Kahlo, that iconic Mexican artist from the early 20th century, was a true eccentric. In her art, she was impatient, often switching between styles: self-portraiture, surrealism, magical realism, still life. She was prone to extravagant fashion choices, with a wardrobe that was as flamboyant as it was extensive. Politically, she was extreme, an activist and member of the Mexican Communist Party. Physically, she suffered: Struck by a car in her youth while also afflicted by polio, she endured 30 operations throughout her life. Her medical troubles greatly influenced her art, as did her social activism. She was, in all senses of the phrase, a true original.

At this expertly curated Washington, D.C., museum one can find Self-Portrait Dedicated to Leon Trotsky, a painting done following the brief affair she had with the Russian Communist after he went into exile in Mexico City in 1937. The painting, one of the only works by a Mexican artist at the museum, was donated by Clare Boothe Luce, an American playwright, socialite, and Congresswoman. In the painting, Kahlo clasps a letter addressed to Trotsky which reads, “with all my love.” Museo Dolores Olmedo

Located in Xochimilco, at the southern end of Mexico City, this wonderful museum features works from the collection of the late Mexican businesswoman Dolores Olmedo (19082002). Twenty-seven of her exquisite Kahlo paintings, along with some sketches, attract regular crowds of admiring Fridalovers. It is the largest Kahlo collection in the world (many of Rivera’s works are also there). A jewel of the collection is one of Kahlo’s masterpieces, The Broken Column (1944), a surrealist self-portrait exploring her medical problems. 41

enthusiast community that craves rarity and exclusivity. They often commemorate brand or collection milestones, partnerships, and, sometimes, incorporate unusual materials. As the popularity of rugged sport watches shows no sign of waning, three new limited-edition models touch all the bases, from the world’s highest peaks to the deep blue sea. Montblanc’s 1858 collection is a tribute to the heritage of Minerva (acquired by Montblanc in 2006), which produced complicated mechanical watches for military use and exploration in the 1920s and ’30s. Montblanc’s 1858 Geosphere, which debuted last year, is dedicated to climbing’s greatest test, the Seven Summit challenge, in which climbers attempt to scale the highest peaks on all seven continents. This year, the brand outfitted the Geosphere with a 42mm bronze case complemented by a handsome khaki dial and matching NATO fabric strap to underscore that vintage, outdoorsy vibe. This limited edition (only 1,858 pieces will be made) costs US$6,300 and features a second time zone at 9 o’clock, in addition to a novel worldtime function with two rotating hemispheres of the earth and a 24-hour scale plus day/night indicator. This year, IWC devoted its resources to expanding its popular pilot watch range with 14 new models spanning its Top Gun, Le Petit Prince, and Spitfire collections, including several limited editions. With just 250 pieces, the

Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Spitfire Edition “The Longest Flight” (US$12,400) marks a first for the brand by combining its patented Timezoner world-time mechanism with an in-house automatic movement. Developed for pilots Steve Boultbee Brooks and Matt Jones, who will take off for a round-the-world flight in a vintage Spitfire this summer, the special model evokes the plane’s cockpit with its stainless-steel case, black dial, and military-green textile strap. Meanwhile, Panerai took the plunge this year with a collection of Submersible dive watches, including a number of limited editions. One piece even pairs your purchase with a chance to dive with French free-diving champion and Panerai ambassador Guillaume Néry, who reached a depth of 126 meters on a single breath to clinch the world record. Targeted to serious divers, the Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition PAM00982 (US$19,400) is limited to 500 pieces and has a hefty 47mm brushed titanium case, complete with a unidirectional rotating bezel and extreme water resistance down to 30 bar, or about 300 meters. The bold design stands out with blue accents, including a ceramic inset bezel, against a textured gray dial evocative of sharkskin. The in-house Panerai P.9100 calibre features a flyback function and a special device that zeroes the second hand for precise synchronization with a reference signal. And if you have US$40,000 to invest in a second version, limited to 15 pieces with a slick black Titanium DLC case and Moorea Blue gradient dial, you’ll be heading to French Polynesia for a memorable diving experience with Néry. 43


How and why the liqueur is popping up in cocktails, and all over upscale bars 44

Source/Credit text: Credit information goes right here

Amaro’s Hipness Soars

Fernet is often enjoyed as a digestif.

maro, an herbal, bittersweet Italian liqueur, finds its origins in medieval A health care. Obsessed with the restor-

ative powers of alchemy and natural botanicals, medieval monks and friars in abbeys across Italy often experimented with mixing and matching liquor and wine with herbs. The monks stuck mostly to ingredients that could be found nearby, ensuring that over the centuries different amari (the plural form of the drink) began taking on regional peculiarities. Bitter orange in Sicily. Rhubarb in Alto Adige. Artichoke in Milan. The backwoods elixir was used to aid digestion and stimulate the appetite. Because sugar was a high-priced commodity, most varieties were quite bitter. It wasn’t until the 19th century that amari began to edge into commercial production. Some of the bigger brands today were formed around this time: Fernet-Branca (1845), Amaro Lucano (1894), and Campari (1904). Now, two centuries later, amaro is having its moment. From London to Tokyo, mixologists are employing amari in their cocktails and in-the-know consumers are ordering the stuff after dinner. What Is It?

Amaro, which means “bitter” in Italian, consists of an herb or botanical distilled in a neutral liquor or wine. The more well-known players are Campari, a bright citrus infusion often used in cocktails such as the Negroni (gin, Campari, sweet red vermouth), and Fernet, some mixture of myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile, cardamom, aloe, and saffron in a grapebased spirit, often served as a digestif. But there are many others, ranging from lighter-tasting varieties (Montenegro, Nonino, and Vecchio Amaro del Capo) to sugary (Averna, Meletti, Ramazzotti) or piney (Bràulio) to bold and smoky (Zucca Rabarbaro, Sfumato Rabarbaro). Prices per bottle range from US$20 or so to hundreds of dollars for the vintage stuff. Fernet-Branca

Why Now?

“The craft cocktail craze has really brought some beautiful spirits to the forefront of people’s minds,” says Michael Johns, bar manager at Maple & Ash in Chicago. “I see people ordering Aperol spritz to start quite often now.” Stephen Kurpinsky, head bartender at 100 Proof, a cocktail bar in San Diego, attributes much of amaro’s popularity to the palate-expanding consequences of America’s culinary revival over the past decade, as well as its craft-beer craze. Whereas the American palate used to stick mostly to sugar or salt, “people are enjoying more bitter things now,” Kurpinsky says. After all, it isn’t that big of a transition from a hoppy IPA to a bitter Fernet. Nowadays, he adds, “Any good-quality cocktail bar should have 10 to 20 different amari in stock.” Maximiliano Vallée Valletta, head bartender at Montreal’s Brasserie Les Enfants Terribles, has also seen an uptick in amari orders. Most customers, he says, consume it in cocktails rather than taking it neat—as he likes it, with a twist of orange and mint leaf. Raised with an Italian father, he recalls the family dinner ritual when, each Sunday, after eating, all at the table would take a shot of amaro “to celebrate life.” It is popular nowadays, he adds, for bartenders to substitute amaro for vermouth. “Any decent cocktail bar now has its own amaro twist that is worth checking out.” Swapping in amaro for traditionally used liquors is something of a trend. At 100 Proof, Kurpinsky likes substituting Montenegro amaro for rum in coladas. “It completely changes cocktails,” he says. “Even just swapping out different amari.” He also makes a mean Bitter Giuseppe, equal parts Cynar amaro and sweet vermouth with a hint of lemon and salt. He adds, “It’s rad to see more people come to the bar and say, ‘Hey, make me something with Cynar,’ or, ‘What’s that amaro? I haven’t had that one yet.’ ” 45


The writer, known for her witty essays, offers five picks


hen Sloane Crosley published her first collection of essays—2008’s I Was Told There’d Be Cake, which was critically acclaimed and became a New York Times bestseller— she didn’t realize the book would be marketed as humor. “When my first book came out, the category suggestion on the upper left-hand corner said ‘Essays/Humor’ and I thought, thank you. That’s a very nice thing that has nothing to do with me,” she says. Since then, though, she’s had plenty to do with humor, writing two more essay collections and a novel. She has also been a finalist for the Thurber Prize for American humor writing, and judged the competition twice. Her latest book, Look Alive Out There, with essays that mine humor from experiences as disparate as dealing with bad neighbors and making the decision to freeze one’s eggs, is out in paperback, and Crosley, 40, is at work on a new novel. Her essays often spring from moments of annoyance or frustration that later bloom into something more. “It’s usually an experience in which something becomes a heightened brand of ridiculousness that I think, ‘OK, this is getting written about. I have no choice but to address this,’ ” Crosley says. “My humor is the humor of exasperation.” When reading, Crosley turns to authors who write in a wide range of styles, not always branded as humor, but nevertheless very funny. Here are a few of her favorites:



The Sellout by Paul Beatty

“This is a book that doesn’t give when you press on it. It’s incredibly dense with humor in such a way where that is part of the joke. When I’m writing, my style is such that if I’m worried I’m being too ingratiating or not having enough faith in readers, I’ll take one joke out of every paragraph. But Beatty leans into it.” 2 Christmas is a Sad Season for the Poor by John Cheever

“Cheever is so funny and doesn’t get enough credit for it. He writes about the melancholy of suburbia and the chokehold of it, and it’s beautiful writing.” 3

At Freddie’s by Penelope Fitzgerald

“This is a great novel—it’s very subtle, and very British. It takes place in the 1960s and is about a children’s theater school where everything is taken very seriously. There’s a Christopher Guest element to it. It’s really charming and nimble.” 4

Home Land by Sam Lipsyte

“It’s funny when you get jealous of a book for doing something that never would have occurred to you. It’s like going to an art gallery and thinking, I could do this. Of course, the silent retort is, ‘But you didn’t.’ Home Land is structured as class notes in a high school alumni magazine. ... The entire novel is written as a series of letters to the magazine from the main character, and he’s not doing well.” 5

The Autograph Man by Zadie Smith

“Zadie Smith is sharply hilarious, both in her nonfiction and her fiction. The Autograph Man doesn’t get as much attention as it should, but it’s very funny. Something is happening with our need to heavily categorize everything. ... You don’t have to fit into someone else’s box. It’s strange that books are spoken about and marketed in such grossly uncomplicated ways.”
