Though it may seem contemporary, the concept of ‘art de vivre’ has been an ethical and æsthetic imperative since the days of the most ancient civilizations. The idea of our lives being the raw material for a constantly-evolving work of art is a fascinating one. And the idea of our home conceived as a sanctuary of our own is even more extraordinary still. Is art the only medium that allows us regain lost time, as Proust wanted to? We can’t know for sure. Only if we become artists of our own lives will we perhaps be able to find that private paradise of our own. In this age of change that we live in, we believe more than ever that any urban experience must be able to positively stimulate and influence people’s quality of life. That is why in our building work, we combine wide-open green spaces with civic spaces and low-density urban areas. Because we believe in the potential of culture as an anchor, and the possibility of blurring the boundaries between modern leisure, community, hospitality and urbanism, we actively promote sustainable developments that foster a fusion of art, culture and technology with the services and amenities of a five-star hotel. Our buildings reflect the mastery of our Prize-winning architects and their bold handling of those two key abstractions: light and space. Time seems to come to a standstill in our residences: they are unique spaces, designed to refashion everyday life, where infinite combinations of new experiences and surprising details converge, capable of deepening our sense of union with the cosmos and closeness to the divine, which feeds the most enlightened minds of our time.
