»The soil is the thing interfused with water, air and living creatures, created on the earth's surface under the influence of environmental factors and developed over time as a product of transformation composed of mineral and organic substances with its own morphological organisation, which is able to serve as a location for higher plants. The soil is therefore in a position to form a basis of life for animals and people.« Definition: Soil protection concept by the Federal government

Many beauties can remain sleeping until you wake them back to life. This was the case with the Château de la Goujeonnerie not far from the Île de Ré in the French Vendée region. The département once prospered through the works of Louis Vuitton and through its sawmills. Today the region appears rather abandoned – in the mighty shadow of its neighbour Bretagne, which is more open to tourism. And in the no-man's land of its geographical centre, between chestnut tree woods, small villages and farmyards, lay the Château, first owned by the Cognac producing family, Martell, then by a married couple...

Mix and match on the ground floor: the stuffed horses’ heads were discovered by house-owner Hassan Abdullah in the back corner of a bric-a-brac shop; the Belgian chandelier dates from the 1950s as do the legs on the antique chinoiserie furniture, which bear panels from the 19th century. «I would describe our style as ›Maximalism‹. What counts for us is that the interior design mix touches the heart.« Hassan Abdullah …  The real renovation consisted of installing new water pipes and complete rewiring of the building; every one of the 75 windows was replaced. The result is a fairytale castle with...

…  The restaurant is an established part of ›The Knowledge‹, a London taxi drivers test and is one of the favourite haunts of Damien Hirst and Gwyneth Paltrow. Together with its successors ›Loungelover‹ and ›Maison Trois Garçons‹ it forms the foundation for the careers of the three friends as busy interior designers. »We are currently working on projects for a Four Seasons hotel in Zanzibar and for a new Mandarin Oriental hotel in Prague,« explains Hassan Abdullah, who heads the design department of Les Trois Garçons and on a normal work day gets through an appointment with a new client in Biarritz...

Here they look old The owners of the castle about their favourite antiques Stefan Karlson «Memory of a wish« «Actually, I wanted to be a vet – anatomical illustrations of animals and humans still fascinate me to this day. The sculpture next to me comes from ›Les Fils D`Emilie Deyrolle‹, undoubtedly the best known company of its’ kind in Paris. It was used to teach aspiring doctors and nurses.« 5 top addresses for antiques in Europe 01 L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue daily except Sundays http://www.islesurlasorgue.fr The community with a population of 20,000 is situated near Avignon and is distinguished not...

Michel Lasserre «Quartz with prestige« «These lights are my favourite objects in the castle – they are wonderfully finished and made of very large quartz crystals, which makes them something very special. With their high degree of finishing perfection, they are typical of the manufacturer, Maison Baguès, which between 1930 and 1970 produced quite outstanding pieces. We found them in a shop in London with the curious name ›Bizarre‹.« Hassan Abdullah «Imagination with wings« «My favourite piece is a small marble sculpture that consists of two parts. You can’t tell exactly what it is really supposed...
