This is why the Engel &amp; Vlkers Polo Cup </p><p>is an important event for me every year. In July, we will be inviting employees, business </p><p>partners, friends and guests from all parts of the world to Majorca for the seventh time. </p><p>Once again we were able to sign up top players for this summers tournament, who </p><p>will be competing at the highest skill level. But polo is much more than just a sport. </p><p>It is a lifestyle, which in the case of the </p><p>Engel &amp; Vlkers Cup in Son Coll, also </p><p>includes bringing the event to a close in good company with </p><p>an Argentinian asado. Polo is an extension of my professional </p><p>life. The fascinating interplay between humans and animals is </p><p>all about exclusivity, passion and professionalism precisely </p><p>the values that our brand stands for. The success of the global </p><p>Engel &amp; Vlkers network is built on strict rules and systems. </p><p>With this successful concept, we are pressing ahead with the </p><p>expansion of our business in North America. Last year we </p><p>moved into our new U.S. headquarters on Park Avenue in New </p><p>York City, and are now represented in the United States with </p><p>more than 60 offices. In February, our first Canadian partners </p><p>opened their locations. The real estate crisis is coming to an </p><p>end in the United States as well: with annual sales totaling more </p><p>than one trillion dollars and more than 5 million transactions, </p><p>the U.S. market is experiencing an upswing. Prime locations in </p><p>Manhattan and Silicon Valley see new record prices being paid. High-end real estate hardly lost any of </p><p>its value during the global financial crisis, and remains a secure investment with expected, continuing </p><p>increases in value. Our partners in Dallas are already planning to launch further ten offices in order to </p><p>meet the rising demand. In metropolitan areas, just like in the growing U.S. technology hubs Austin, </p><p>Seattle, Chicago and Miami there is currently no end to this upward trend in sight.</p><p>Sincerely </p><p>Christian Vlkers</p><p>PHOT</p><p>O: C</p><p>HRIS</p><p>TIAN</p><p> SCH</p><p>OPPE</p><p>WELCOME</p><p>6</p></li><li><p>PHOT</p><p>O: C</p><p>HRIS</p><p>TIAN</p><p> SCH</p><p>OPPE</p><p>We hope you enjoy the new GG!</p><p>Michaela Cordes</p><p>All names and addresses on page 176.</p><p>Dream Big There is no other city that gets you dreaming like L.A. Of course, its the weather, the </p><p>palm trees, the lifestyle, some think, as they put on their sunglasses and watch the </p><p>glamorous scenes at the pool of the Beverly Hills Hotel, also known as the Pink Palace. </p><p>(Speaking of which starting on page 52, we will get you in the mood for some cool, </p><p>Hollywood-style refreshment.) Others use this creative </p><p>melting pot to turn their dreams into reality. Like </p><p> Benedikt Taschen, who has made the Hollywood Hills </p><p>his second home. Thirty-five years ago, the unconven-</p><p>tional entrepreneur from Cologne, Germany, founded </p><p>his publishing house specializing in exquisite books, </p><p>which brim over with passion just like the publisher </p><p>himself. Starting with comic books, he went on to in-</p><p>troduce 1000 titles and created the biggest and most </p><p>expensive book of the 20th century about photog-</p><p>rapher Helmut Newton. In the garden of his residence, </p><p>Chemosphere House, the restless visionary remem-</p><p>bers some of the most amazing moments of his ca-</p><p>reer. Japanese architect Kengo Kuma is currently causing a stir with his unusual and very </p><p>delicate style: washi paper, bamboo and hinoki wood are his favorite materials. Kuma </p><p>has just been appointed by the Victoria &amp; Albert Museum to design a spectacular new </p><p>building in Scotland. Lots of white, tinted walnut and sandblasted wood dominate the in-</p><p>terior of Vertigo, the latest, 67-meter yacht built by Alloy Yachts. The stunning interior </p><p>of the beautiful ketch is the work of master designer Christian Liaigre. </p><p>We publish books for every budget. The passion and love we invest in each of them are always the same, no matter what the price, says Benedikt Taschen. Hes right! One of the most humorous, and </p><p>at the same time afford-able, new releases (only 12 euros, linen, hardcov-er) is the small illustrated book Man meets Woman by Yang Liu. </p><p>WELCOME</p><p>8</p></li><li><p>MNCHEN, TEL. 089 - 24 22 600WWW.HEMMERLE.COM</p><p>MUNICH, T. +49 89 2 42 26 00HEMMERLE.COM</p><p>MASTERPIECE LONDON</p><p>JUNE 25TH JULY 1TH 2015</p><p>DR_Hemmerle_GG_225x297_06_2015_Ro_001Seitex1von1 1 22.04.15 14:18</p></li><li><p>PHOT</p><p>OS: J</p><p>OHAN</p><p>NES </p><p>PAUL</p><p> HU</p><p>SSLE</p><p>R (1</p><p>), NE</p><p>LE M</p><p>ARTE</p><p>NSEN</p><p> (1)</p><p>Artist ART KALIGOS </p><p>His name says it all: in 2002 Art Kaligos </p><p>moved to New York to study photography. For </p><p>the last five years, he has been using his ex-</p><p>pertise to market the most beautiful shots </p><p>for the Trunk Archive photo agency. For us, </p><p>he brought together Hollywood stars at and </p><p>in the pool (page 52).</p><p>Bundle of energy JULIO CESAR FERNNDEZ MOURIO </p><p>Boredom is not an option! At least not around our Spanish license partner Julio Cesar Fernn-dez Mourio. Fulfilling his customers wishes is his top priority. With a lot of energy, enthusi-asm and love for his work, he found us a con-tact for the Madrid villa featured in our For Sale section (page 68).</p><p>Sunshine SASKIA HERMANN Vacations are great, espe-cially on Bali! Of course Hamburg native Saskia Hermann does not only think about vacations: she loves her job in Premium Marketing at E&amp;V. As a go-between for the GG publishing house, she also looks after our advertorials (starting on page 74) and the For Sale feature (starting on page 68).</p><p>Newcomer MARIA MUNDT </p><p>Maria Mundt, who has been working as a graphic designer at GG since September, dared to make the move from a village to the city of Hamburg. But she didnt come unprepared: after completing her de-gree in communication design, Maria spent seven months working and traveling in Australia. Now she can totally dedicate herself to her passion for de-sign. We are delighted to have her!</p><p>On tour SIMONE KNAUSS </p><p>Simone Knauss loves city trips and is crazy about tapas. She set o from Barcelona her favorite city for Madrid at short notice, when she received our assignment to write about the Spanish capital (see page 18). She has also been on a long journey pro-</p><p>fessionally: in the last 15 years the journalist has written for a great number of renowned German interior design and lifestyle magazines, and pub-</p><p>lished two books on home decor.</p><p>THANK YOUCONTRIBUTORS</p><p>10</p></li><li><p>MODEL: CONSETA by F.W.Mller www.cor.de</p><p>You could call this sofa a Milestone.

However, the melting pot has also much to offer during daytime. Art, design and creative people from all over the world have settled, or made their mark, here. Like Swiss architects Herzog &amp; de Meuron, who designed the CaixaForum museum and auditorium (pictured here: its spectacular stairway).</p><p>PLAYGROUNDTRAVELART&amp;DESIGNINTERVIEWWOMANMANLOOK</p><p>PHOT</p><p>OS: </p><p> ARC</p><p>AIDI</p><p>MAG</p><p>ES.C</p><p>OM / </p><p>MAR</p><p>K BE</p><p>NTLE</p><p>Y</p><p>17</p></li><li><p>A Place in the Sun Modern architecture, youthful design and relaxed waterfront lifestyles times have changed the city of Madrid, which had a hard time competing with Barcelona.
