Our new design world. We unpack the best projects and plans for creating the perfect residence.

Are you sitting comfortably?

It’s time for Monocle’s annual property survey, where we start with five distinguished developments.

Welcome to our annual property survey, where we whizz around the globe to show you the best recent developments and have a look at the cities getting it right. Below you can join us on a whistlestop tour of impressive new buildings, ranging from a reimagined former bank to a leafy Vietnamese residence.

We then take stock of the housing projects making Los Angeles more accessible, before rounding up in sunny Cannes with a look at this year’s Mipim, the largest property fair in the world. Come in and make yourself at home. — (m)
