A Taste of Italy in the Heart of London Contents Welcome to the February edition of LUX, where we take a look into the world of all things luxurious. Heading up this edition is a fascinating insight into the work of Lilian H Weinreich Architects, which combines a clean modern aesthetic with an understanding of how people live and use spaces on a daily basis. Elsewhere, we learn about the Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa, the only resort in the Algarve, in an undiscovered area of rural Portugal, that combines 5-star hospitality and modern design with unspoilt surroundings and breath-taking views of the rolling mountains and the coast. This and many more luxurious experiences are covered in this lavishly illustrated edition. I hope you feel relaxed as you read it.
