AMERICAN-ENGLISH ACADEMY: SCHOOL OF DREAMS

Remember those days when you would wake up and not want to set foot in your dreary old school? The new building of the American-English Academy currently under construction in Sofia is going to send this excuse into the past.

The modern campus sprawls on more than 150,000 sq. f and is specially designed to support sustainability. The complex, which will open for the 2014/2015 school year, will be certified by the United States system for green buildings and construction LEED and will contain many green features – park area, open air study areas and even its own lake.

Additionally, the buildings will have spacious roof gardens and a library with entrance to the green areas.

The school, which has a curriculum entirely in English, has various student activities which will be accommodated in a large concert hall and computerized classrooms.

Recognised by the United States National Council for Private School Accreditation and the Accreditation International, the American-English Academy teaches students from 3 years old to 12th grade by a rigorous programme that prepares them to continue in the best universities of the world.

VERTU AND FERRARI CREATE LIMITED EDITION PHONE

Lovers of sleek design may rejoice. The joint collaboration of Vertu and Ferrari - two companies renowned for their meticulous attention to detail, high technology and stunning appearance – has produced the exclusive VERTU Ti Ferrari phone.

The model, of which only 2013 phones have been made by a single Vertu craftsman, is the result of the leading world manufacturer of luxury mobile phones working closely together with Ferrari design director Flavio Manzoni.

The ergonomic lines of the F12berlinetta car make an appearance in the elegant appearance of the VERTU Ti Ferrari, whose metal elements are protected from scratching by the Diamond Like Coating used on the car engine as well. The high-end model is therefore durable and hardy for any adventure that you may put it through – not to mention that it is protected by a hand-stitched leather case of the same type used in Ferrari cabins.

With the uniquely available Ferrari app you have access to all things Ferrari, as well as lists of authorized garages and service centres.

You will find the new Vertu at boutique La Tiara, Sofia, 7 Tsar Kaloyan St, phone: 088 777 1770
