EDITOR’S NOTE

Luxury Properties (Indonesia) - - CONTENTS -

Keunikan lansekap Bali mencuri perhatian warga dunia untuk bermukim di pulau yang termasuk destinasi turisme terfavorit di dunia. Dua dekade terakhir, Balinese-style menjadi sebuah nilai tersendiri dalam arsitektur tropik yang menjadi curahan kreativitas para arsitek mancanegara untuk membangun vila, hotel dan cottage di sana. Salah satunya, Jimbaran Bay karya John Heah dari Heah & Co., yang juga telah merancang The Four Seasons Resort Bali di Sayan, wilayah perbukitan Ubud. Di sana hadir vila-vila yang tersembunyi di antara rerimbunan pohon dan Sungai Ayung dengan atmosfer menawan ( Property Special, hal. 14).

Melanglang ke Copenhagen ( Focus, hal. 56), ibukota Denmark yang dikenal sebagai salah satu kota di Eropa sebagai kota penting dalam desain selain bersih, hijau, dan inovatif. Kota yang penuh dengan arus ide cemerlang dan matang, serta berpotensi bagi pasar perumahan yang berkiblat pada desain. Sementara di sisi dunia lain, kemewahan Sardinia Emerald Coast ( Focus, 74) menjadi daya tarik investasi lain yang menjanjikan. Bagi kaum jet set Eropa, Porto Cervo adalah destinasi liburan mewah sejak 1970-an. Menyandang reputasi penuh kemewahan dan sarat privasi, pasar properti di Emerald Coast seolah-olah tidak terimbas badai ekonomi Eropa.

Tokoh-tokoh desainer yang tampil dalam edisi kali ini cukup beragam, dimulai dari perupa ternama Hanafi dengan pamerannya yang luar biasa, Derau Jawa (Art, 44), kisah unik karier Heidar Sadeki dari pembuat film yang akhirnya mendirikan firma arsitektur interior Richardson Sadeki ( Creator, hal 64) hingga desainer interior kesayangan para klien kelas atas dunia, Chahan Minassian yang deretan karyanya sarat sentuhan budaya ( Spaces, hal. 48).

Nikmati juga liputan kami tentang jam tangan pria terbaru dari Baselworld (Watch Report, hal. 24), dan tentunya laporan tentang perkembangan properti apartemen mewah di Jakarta dan sekitarnya ( Discovery, hal. 20). Selamat menikmati.

The uniqueness of Bali’s landscape steals the world’s attention and invites people to settle on this island deemed to be a favorite tourist destination. Over the past two decades, Balinese style has become a value of its own when it comes to tropical architecture, exhibiting an outpouring of creativity for many international architects to build villas, hotels and cottages there. One of them is Jimbaran Bay by John Heah from Heah & Co. He marked his work through his design of The Four Seasons Resort Bali in Sayan, in the Ubud area where villas are hidden among groves of trees and the Ayung River proffers a charming atmosphere ( Property Special, p, 14).

Moving on to Copenhagen ( Focus, p. 56), we discover the capital city of Denmark, known as the city of clean designs, friendly environment and innovation. Copenhagen is a city full of brilliant and ripe ideas, with great potential for the house design market. On the other side of the world, the luxurious Sardinia Emerald Coast ( Focus, p. 74) possesses an appeal for other promising investments. For Europe’s jet set crowd, Porto Cervo has been a lavish holiday destination since the 1970s. With its reputation for luxury and exclusiveness, it is as if the property market on the Emerald Coast isn’t affected by the European economy.

A variety of designers are featured in this edition. We start with the artist Hanafi, exploring his extraordinary exhibition Derau Jawa ( Art, 44), a unique tale of Heidar Sadeki’s career from being a director to eventually opening an interior design firm, Richardson Sadeki, (Creator, p. 64) and even upscale clients’ favorite interior designer, Chahan Minassian, whose designs are loaded with vibrant touches of culture ( Spaces, p. 48).
