Built approximately 900 meters above sea level, the structure is nestled in the mountainous Semmering Pass. This idyllic region located an hour from Vienna has been a sought-after destination for the

There are countless articles and books extolling the importance of organizational culture, but when it comes down to defining what culture is and what sets one company’s culture apart from another’s, things become a bit more nebulous. Is it the people? Is it certain operating standards? The client experience? I believe it’s a combination of these and other factors that coalesce to form the unique DNA that makes up each organization’s brand identity.

When a client walks into an Engel & Völkers shop, be it in Belize, Minneapolis or Budapest, they can expect a certain look, feel and experience. Similarly, when that client is looking for a home across the

In New York City, a shop displays old New York Times papers that have been stacked, bound and put up against its every wall and counter. For Australian beauty product brand Aesop, all these architectural designs defy the norm against most other retail brands and uphold one tenant: total atmospheric emersion in each global location.
