On the inside partitions are kept to a bare minimum as an open floor plan visually connects the kitchen the dining space and the family zone. One can see industrial-style lighting and glass partitions with dark metallic frames throughout the residence while understated contemporary décor fills each room. Lighting plays a major role in the overall ambiance of the home with natural ventilation flowing from one room to the next. Geometric tiles in the kitchen add pattern to the space while throw pillows and bedding bring color to the minimal bedroom in white.
Sarah and Kimo Bertram’s admiral blue maritime home in Mission Creek San Francisco was designed by Robert Nebolon Architects and built by contractor Bart Elmer with many of the same kinds of covetable architectural elements you’d find on land. Despite its liquid foundation the house’s double-level main living space features large dramatic windows that allow homeowners to soak in those baby blue water views.
Windows were kept to a bare minimum with just three large windows on the main living area offering scenic views of the mountain terrain outside. A smart air circulation system and a black corrugated steel exterior make the home even more energy-efficient.
The pool house was crafted with the picture-perfect landscape that surrounds it in mind and its large sliding glass doors ensure that the line between the interior and the world outside is almost non-existent.
Accomplishing precisely this with color and class Ganna Design turned a 30-year old house in Taiwan into a gorgeous and engaging modern home. Inspired by those multi-colored windows that one sees in churches and the choices of the homeowner’s two little daughters there is no shortage of vibrant richness inside.
