a new tomorrow

It wasn’t so long ago when breaking bread with family and friends was the norm, or when a visit to the museum involved an actual walk around its premises rather than a virtual tour.

In such unprecedented circumstances, our abodes have become even more of a sanctuary as we find joy in the simple things—whether it’s caring for our house plants or savouring a cup of coffee while appreciating the blue skies. As my favourite wizard Albus Dumbledore would say: “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light”.…

PERFECT PAIRING The elegant work of Piero Lissoni and John Pawson finds creative synergy in two furniture collections from Valencia-based brand Viccarbe. The Season chair by Lissoni features rounded edges and hidden castor wheels, and can be paired beautifully with the understated Trestle table by Pawson; the latter features solid oak legs and a table top in three sizes, as well as an option to stow wires within its top and along the legs.

ANDERMATT SWISS ALPS, SWITZERLAND What is it like to live on top of the world? Those who will eventually stay at Andermatt Swiss Alps, a luxury development situated 3,000m above sea level, would have a unique perspective—and a sustainable one at that. Building a carbon-neutral community atop one of the world’s highest peaks presented plenty of challenges, and it has taken the developers nearly 15 years to realise their vision. They entrusted Belgian architect Jean-Michel Gathy to create the complex, which includes six hotels, 42 apartment houses, dozens of exclusive chalets and amenities including an indoor pool, 18-hole golf course, ski resort and a clubhouse, all powered by 100 per cent renewable energy. andermatt-swissalps.ch/en AMAALA, SAUDI ARABIA The Red Sea is one of the most revered bodies of water in the world, and a…
