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.
A modular sofa in the living room an eclectic blend of chairs in the dining room and a delightful window with multi-colored brilliance in the stairwell delight and surprise you. The lower level of the residence contains the public areas while the top floor houses the kids’ bedrooms along with the master bedroom and bathrooms.
Transcendent lighting the sight of cool hammock-laced hangouts floating on the lake just a few steps away and the curated pool deck with an outdoor lounge add to the appeal of the pool house. Without a semblance of a doubt it is the magical backdrop that turns this sensible and stylish kiosk into a memorable masterpiece!
There are only a handful of accommodations in the world where you can see fishes swimming past your window and Tanzania’s Manta Resort is one of these rare treasures. This remote getaway is almost like its own waterborne island with the chance to indulge in three separate experiences of the ocean: an underwater suite a sea-level deck and an elevated roof terrace that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.
A great perk in embracing the concept of adaptive reuse is the way that you can turn those old family homes into sparkling contemporary residences with little effort and creativity. This not only saves money and time but preserves all those memories that come attached with the home.
