The Heart of Europe to handover 2,000 units within Phase I as it re-creates the charm of the French Riviera through St. Tropez Hotel

Construction of the project’s innovative landmarks, including the Floating Seahorse Villas, Sweden Beach Palaces, Germany Island Villas, Honeymoon Island, Portofino Hotel and Côte d’Azur Resort are progressing in full speed with all the Phase I projects having topped out while engineers are currently putting finishing touches on the exterior facades and interior décor – making them ready to receive tourists from all over the world – when large-scale tourism traffic starts to pick up.

“At the beginning of the year, we made a commitment to deliver part of the Phase 1 of the Heart of Europe to the owners by the end of 2020,” Josef Kleindienst, Chairman of Kleindienst Group, said. “At that time, we were not fully aware of the devastating effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and its magnitude.

“However, despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we were determined to go ahead with our planned development and as the lockdown was announced in March, we shifted our entire team to the Heart of Europe islands and continued to construct. During the lockdown, we were isolated from the mainland and confined to the island and focused on construction.

“Now, I am pleased to announce that, we are ready to hand-over residential units to home-owners so that they can fit out the interiors. This reflects our strong commitment to the investors and as they start taking over, I am also excited to announce that we have started construction of the Phase II of the project – and plan to complete the development of the island by 2022.”

Since about 90 percent of the developments of the island are hospitality units, hotels and resorts will be opened when large-scale tourism traffic starts to pick up, he says.

“We are also getting ready to commercially open more than 1,500 hospitality units in five hotels and resorts – when the tourists start to travel – after the situation normalises. The recent announcement of the COVID-19 vaccine is encouraging and if most people are vaccinated in the first half of 2021, we will open the world-class leisure destination to local, regional and international tourists ahead of the Expo 2020 that starts in October 2021,” Josef Kleindienst says.

St. Tropez – an exclusive boutique hotel offering 200 keys – is gradually taking shape at the Heart of Europe, the most sustainable luxury leisure tourism destination in the world. Part of the four-hotel Côte d’Azur Resort, it will add to the growing attractions of the Heart of Europe, once complete in a few months.

Overlooking the Arabian Gulf, St. Tropez offers magnificent sea views – of a large body of crystal clear blue waters at an inter-connected destination of six islands that makes up the Heart of Europe, which will be one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the world.

St. Tropez promises to deliver luxury suites where every window overlooks mesmerising seascapes that shine under the sun. Guests will be able to surround themselves in the spellbinding beauty of the azure blue

nicolas&nicolas designs salmon pink boutique hotel in the heart of quito, ecuador

design studio nicolas&nicolas introduce the ‘republica rosa’ hotel situated in the historic center of quito, ecuador. responding to the client’s request, the design generates a distinct salmon pink structure that preserves elements of the regional architecture, but still stands out due to its unique appearance and identity.

the design by nicolas&nicolas restores some original elements of the pre-existing building (adobe walls, tile roofs, and wooden floors) while adding other new pieces (coatings and flooring) and reinterpreting others, such as its distinctive and unusual internal façade that overlooks the central courtyard. throughout its history and several transformations, several layers of paint, dirt, and stucco had been accumulated on the walls. when the interior restoration began, all these different textures and colors came to light. among them, a salmon pink tone that was selected as the main color of the new identity.

the building features an internal central courtyard, a typical design element of local period architecture, which was restored and re-organized to serve as a common social area for all 11 rooms. the new mosaic installed on the floor gives a modern and fresh touch to the interior. the walls that surround the courtyard were covered with plasterboard to accommodate all the new installations without affecting the bearing adobe walls which were also restored to create exposed details of the original material of the house. the rest of the walls and ceilings were painted dark gray to create an opaque environment that contrasts the internal salmon-colored facade.

respond to the current needs of hotels, the rooms were re-designed to be flexible and able to adapt according to demand. the relatively confined spaces of the pre-existing architecture resulted in the creation of custom-designed furniture, manufactured by local artisans, which transform a single into a double room in a few minutes. the original wooden floors and adobe walls were restored but also a new lighting design was implemented that creates a cozy atmosphere.
