The long way to becoming the dream home for Sarah and Kimo Bertram started on in Sausalito where the house-boat has been envisioned by the creative minds from Robert Nebolon Architects together with general contractor Bart Elmer. The duo came up with the idea of nesting the structure in a boxlike concrete barge that not only protects it from the marine climate but also provides keel-like stability — a much needed feature on water.
A flowing harmony between the interior and the exterior seems to play a pivotal role in the charm of this lovely retreat. The interior sports a semi-minimal look with white grays and browns dominating the walls and the décor. Step inside and a beautiful fireplace an ergonomic kitchen and a luxurious living room greet you gleefully. Plush bedrooms that offer ample privacy great natural ventilation and a sleek modern fireplace complete this elegant retreat.
We have seen some beautiful houses located in historically significant neighborhoods get a modern makeover without disturbing the façade of the existing structure. Coming from Down Under in Melbourne the is another gorgeous example of seamless fusion between the classic and the contemporary.
The world around us gets recreated because we are constantly on the lookout for something new and exciting. Interior designers have this natural instinct when it comes to combining stories and materials feeling and colors or textures and memories.
