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.
The renovation of the existing structure required an extensive makeover. Since the home owners wanted their revamped residence to sport unabated views of the world outside glass has been used lavishly to achieve the best result possible. With maximized views and ample natural ventilation this classic home was instantly turned into a more open and inviting dwelling.
The growing trend in modern design and architecture is to create homes that are one with their surroundings. Draped in a hood of green that offers plenty of seclusion the Southlands Residence in Vancouver is all about the perfect synergy between interiors and the exterior. Smartly placed concrete walls wooden partitions and sliding glass doors combine privacy with unabated views of the many sights and sounds outside.
While the interiors employ a largely neutral color palette with emphasis being placed on warm earthen tones the presence of flowing blue accents throughout the residence is pretty obvious. This gives both the interiors and the exterior an inimitable look and a distinct sense of playfulness.
Brilliant bright and sporting ample space the main challenge in designing and decorating this luxurious home came in the form of filling up all that space on offer! The designers had to be careful in ensuring a presence of visual and textural balance even as splashes of color brought in inviting warmth.
