Villa Chamade is a massive contemporary estate located just few minutes away from the center of Cannes, and the prestigious Cap d’Antibes. With a commanding hillside position on a 3400 square meters of land, this high-class residence offers 660 square meters of living space with its 6 en-suite bedrooms, a meticulously designed living room and two kitchens for summer and winter time.
Sumptuous panoramic views of the bay and the Lerins Islands are perfectly framed by floor to ceiling windows in every room of the house. Exuding a feeling of space throughout, the interiors are designed in a highly contemporary manner, with diverse finishes. The array of textures make the place feel dynamic and welcoming. And as if all these were not enough to define a striking French Riviera home, the pool overlooking the bay with its jacuzzi, a spa and hamman complete the picture. Villa Chamade is currently listed for sale on Sotheby’s and the price is available on request.
A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
