Calistoga Ranch: Sanctuary in the Vineyards

CALISTOGA RANCH

SANCTUARY IN THE VINEYARDS

Tucked into a private canyon marked by ancient oaks, majestic hills, a rock-hewn stream and private lake, Auberge Resorts’ Calistoga Ranch is an oenophile’s dream come true in California’s celebrated Napa Valley wine country. The Ranch offers a rare opportunity to enjoy luxury vacation-home living in one of the most sought-after destinations in the world with access to the signature services and amenities of an Auberge resort and an unprecedented entrée into Napa’s legendary wine culture. The 23 owner lodges at Calistoga Ranch are nestled among undulating hillsides amid ancient oak groves providing owners the ultimate “bungalow in the woods” experience with a collection of indoor/ outdoor spaces that allow them to fully experience the pristine natural setting. Constructed of rustic natural materials, including rough-sawn wood posts and beams, cedar shingles, and native dry-stacked stone, the lodges blend in with the natural landscape. Each two-bedroom owner lodge offers 3,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor living space, including a master suite with bath that opens to a private outdoor shower; a spacious living room and a well-equipped kitchen with wine storage. At the heart of each lodge is the outdoor living room, complete with a fireplace. The placement of each lodge is unique, depending on the topography of each site. Some lodges appear to float over streams, while others are protected under a canopy of native oak trees or elevated high into stands of pines. Luxury is an Auberge signature and prior to arrival, owners can request customized preparations including lit fireplaces, stocked refrigerators or delivery of their individual wine selection stored in the resort’s wine cave. They are welcome to use of the resort’s Mercedes to visit spots throughout the spectacular Napa Valley or to indulge in private chefs for in-lodge dining. Owner privileges extend to the spectacular wine cave, bocce ball courts, extensive hiking trails, open-air fitness center, yoga decks in the forest and the pool overlooking the resort’s private vineyard. Innovative daily activities that incorporate both physical and spiritual programs such as Woodland Haiku and Ai Chi are designed to further enhance each owner’s personalized experience and capture the pristine setting of Calistoga Ranch. Following an exhilarating day exploring the 157 lush acres dedicated to active pursuits at Calistoga Ranch, The Bathhouse Spa, named one of the country’s top spas by Conde Nast Traveler, is an excellent way to relax, rejuvenate and bask in the region’s healing mineral waters. The day would not be complete without pampering the palette at the exquisite Lakehouse restaurant serving world-class epicurean delights.

Calistoga Ranch: Sanctuary in the Vineyards

Vintner Members Program Calistoga Ranch owners enjoy exclusive participation in the Vintner Members Program allowing them to experience Napa as privileged insiders. The program features a series of social events planned by Calistoga Ranch’s vintner partners. These celebrated winemakers - from the famed Quintessa and Chappellet Wineries to the highly sought-after Joseph Phelps Vineyards - host the events on their vineyard estates, providing a wide range of unique and entertaining experiences. Vintner members host new release celebrations, harvest festivals, wine blending parties and pairing classes throughout the year that are exclusive to owners who are also invited to special dinners at Vintner Member estates and could be among the first to purchase limited edition releases. Calistoga’s on-site vineyard, under the careful nurturing of renowned Napa Valley winemakers Nils and Kirk Venge, offer owners the opportunity to share and participate in the process of winemaking, by learning the art of pruning, and joining in the harvest and crush. The annual Harvest Wine Blending Party is the signature event of the year and exclusive to owners who don their aprons and huddle over the blending tables to create their own unique wine blend guided by the expert tutelage of Kirk Venge. The event culminates with the much anticipated family-style dinner under the stars. Membership also grants privileged access to the spectacular 3,800 square foot wine cave, where events and weddings can be held and owners can store their wine. Lakeside Dining Calistoga Ranch’s private restaurant, the Lakehouse, celebrates the legendary food and wine culture in Napa Valley and makes use of organic ingredients from farmers throughout Napa Valley and Northern California. As with the owner lodges, the restaurant blurs the line between indoors and outdoors. Glass walls offer pastoral views of the magnificent oak groves and open onto an expansive deck overlooking Lake Lommel, where guests can enjoy dining under the stars. Two private rooms adjacent to the Lakehouse offer the perfect venue for special occasions and intimate gatherings. A café near the swimming pool allows guests to dine in a casual outdoor atmosphere. And, as an option, owners may arrange to have a private chef prepare a romantic dinner or lavish party in their own lodge, or even host a private culinary lesson and demonstration. The Bathhouse Spa For those seeking rejuvenation, all roads lead to The Bathhouse. Situated on the banks of the spring-fed Lake Lommel, The Bathhouse offers a strong connection to the natural beauty of the outdoors and views of the Mayacama Mountains. Designed to pay tribute to Calistoga’s centuriesold legacy as a site for healing mineral waters, The Bathhouse features a natural mineral pool and quiet

treatment rooms with outdoor garden showers and private soaking tubs. While waiting for therapists or between treatments, guests are invited to unwind by the fire in the outdoor relaxation area while enjoying the soft sounds of the nearby creek. A variety of unique mud treatments and baths reflect the true Calistoga soak/bath/heat ritual, but in a luxurious environment of pure relaxation, privacy and nature. Staying true to the commitment of each Auberge Resort spa, the foundation of the spa services consist of exceptional bodywork and treatments indigenous to the region, with a menu of services that rotates seasonally. A tempting combination of traditional Calistoga offerings and signature treatments from The Bathhouse take advantage of the bounty of the local area incorporating buttermilk, nuts, honey, fruits and grapes as the basis for all body masks and exfoliations. Ownership is acquired on a fractional basis, making The Residences at Calistoga Ranch an ideal home away from home with list prices starting at $475,000. Use of the 23 Owner Lodges is unlimited, based on availability and provides owners with the flexibility and ability to tailor use to their individual needs each year. Reservations can be booked at the beginning of the year, a month or two in advance and even with as little notice as 24 hours. Calistoga Ranch embodies a divine sanctuary – a haven of luxury, peace and tranquility to enjoy for generations to come.

Dream Architecture: House of Twelve

DREAM ARCHITECTURE

HOUSE OF TWELVE

Design: Antonino Cardillo architect

It was the ruins of ancient Rome that inspired this project, those unpredictable warps that in the eighteenth century appeared to European travellers on the Grand Tour as fantastic visions. Rather than the historic original, what fascinates still today is this state of progressive destruction that millennia carve in the forms, unveiling their most obscure recesses. So the ruin tells us of time passing, of slowly dying beauty, and in this its slow decay evokes a transverse narrative, as if trapped between the architecture and its definitive destruction. “House of Twelve� tries to invent a fantastic response to an interrupted story, following an empirical path made by progressive mutation of contemporary ideas and those of

late antiquity, such as the theme of intersecting rings or the horizontal sequence of multiple spaces and forms, concatenated and directed according to a centrifugal expansionism, which unites works of Frank Lloyd Wright with the villa of the emperor Hadrian at Tivoli. Collisions and juxtapositions, furthermore – distant echoes of the American Center in Paris by Frank Owen Gehry – characterise the front and the public space of the house, whose roundnesses appear, from the road, to be deeply

sculpted. As well as restoring thickness to the façade, these excavations make it permeable to the winter sun, which reaches to illuminate – with a grazing light, interpreted by the cavities – the courtyards at the rear. In particular, the living space, with its diaphanous vault in gold mosaic, the ripples of the mirrors of water at the edges and the consequent manifold reflections of light, appears from the main courtyard as a baroque “room of light”, here reinvented in an urban key.

Canterbury Estates: Concrete Palace in West Vancouver

CANTERBURY ESTATES

CONCRETE PALACE IN WEST VANCOUVER Vancouver’s top “mega realtor”, Malcolm Hasman, presents a ”World Class Residence in West Vancouver”

Dream Homes & Living recently had an opportunity to explore a modern masterpiece, designed by renowned Vancouver architect Robert Ciccozzi. Situated on a spectacular southern facing and sloping site located high up in the British Properties of West Vancouver, the home engages panoramic views of Downtown Vancouver and the Burrard Inlet. With its clean design and a striking exposed concrete and wood exterior, the home is an expression of modernism and contemporary art form. It is built on two side-by-side lots, with 7,000 sqft of living space and an entirely separate guesthouse. While talking with Robert Ciccozzi on the conception of this house he stated, “it started with a client who appreciates and understands Architecture as an art form.” Sculptural in design and aesthetically finished, this home has a stunning appeal as you drive up the hill alongside the views of the bay. “The palette of materials like smooth architectural exposed concrete inside and out, warm naturally stained cedar siding, clear glazing set in sharp black frames and zinc clad roofs and soffits came together to define the interior spaces and experiences.” Once within, you’re struck by how the contemporary, chic design style correlates and integrates with cutting edge technology and spectacular, panoramic views beautifully framed, and intensified. Even though the design of the exterior of the home was seen as an object of art, the inside organization of the plan was based on the experience of the home. As one experiences the home you are constantly reintroduced to the view whether it be a framed view purposely orientated to downtown Vancouver or panoramic views of Vancouver and Burrard Inlet. The experience is further enhanced through the introduction of highly resolved details like the interface and alignment of the different materials and finishes and like the intricately detailed

second floor bridge that stretches across the two story volume of the Living and Dining room and looks out to a panoramic view through a large two story high south facing glass wall. The bridge is held off the interior concrete wall through the introduction a 18’ strip of glass floor inlayed between and along the entire length of the hardwood floor of the bridge and the concrete wall. This strip of glass floor is repeated and aligned on the roof and the first floor that then allows natural light to enter through the roof and be carried down the concrete wall through the glass floors to the basement level. The exposed concrete walls are embellished with stunning pieces of contemporary art, not included in the price of the home. The barrel vaulted wood ceiling with elegant recessed lighting and gorgeous chandeliers adds to the artistic aura of the home. The lower level has a home theater, a gym room and an incredible wine cellar that would put the Four Seasons wine cellar to shame. It also boasts a uniquely designed laundry room finished completely in stainless steel. The back side of the home is an impressive facade of glass and steel reflecting off light and water to create a scintillating luminosity. It is orientated to the south west and connects to a large main floor patio finished with a rich hardwood decking that contains a large infinity edge swimming pool, a custom hot tub and and a large covered and heated seating area with a built-in barbeque and fireplace. With just the base construction for this home costing 15M this home is more than worth its asking price.

The Azimut 64

THE AZIMUT 64 CANNES; 26 June 2010 – Dynasty. That’s the word one might use to describe Azimut’s flybridge line. For one special quality: that of profiting from an outstanding history and transforming each success into the basis for a new challenge. Today that dynasty is enriched with a new model: the Azimut 64. A yacht over 20 meters long, the hatural heir to the Azimut 62, a model rewarded with unprecedented sales success: 200 units sold world-wide. Stylistic innovation, an exceptional level of safety, excellent navigability: the Azimut 64 reinterprets and updates the strong points that made the 62’s commercial feat possible. The originality and sportiness of the design are apparent at the very first glance. The lines of the deckhouse exude elegance and harmony, with bold windows made more aggressive by the fin of the flybridge that emerges at the level of the saloon. The mirror-finish glass placed on the roll bar further refines what is already perfect. Safety is certified by homologation in Class A: or to put it differently, Azimut 64 can tackle any sea and weather conditions. The hull and structures have been designed striving for the best balance between traditional and innovative composite materials (like carbon fiber) and then realized through the infusion process to ensure greater sturdiness in the points of greatest stress. At the same time they reduce the hull’s weight, allowing the two 1150 hp Caterpillar engines to achieve better performances and savings on consumption. The access door to the crew cabin is watertight, with sideways opening and electrically

controlled unlocking. The furnishings have been designed in their ergonomics and shapes to afford maximum comfort during moments of relaxation and to facilitate the movement of guests and crew through the inclusion of handrails in all rooms, along walkways and stairs and on overhead surfaces. The boat’s maneuverability and seaworthiness have been enhanced as well to make sailing even more pleasurable. The Azimut 64 is equipped with an Easy Docking system and Seakeeper gyrostabilizers that reduce roll by up to 80%, both with the boat at anchor and under way. The helm station features excellent ergonomics, with a double seat and power-assisted back, a height-adjustable steering wheel placed in the middle of the instrument panel to provide full control of the onboard instrumentation, a spacious windscreen and electrically operated side windows for maximum visiblity. The Azimut 64 is also a new reference standard in terms of space organization and the systematic search for style and comfort, with expanded volumes and enhanced luminosity. The flybridge is the most complete in the category and

every competitive edge translates into benefits for the owner. Unique in the segment is the new-generation hardtop with a bimini that can be kept closed during navigation up to top speed. The elegant structure is open aft and on the sides, ensuring extensive protection against the sun’s rays but remaining airy and without barriers: this turns the upper deck into a space that can be enjoyed throughout the day, even during the warmest hours. For its dimensions and amenities the flybridge of the Azimut 64 lays claim to being the boat’s heart, the center of gravity for the passions of the owner and his guests, an area devoted to relaxation and socializing. Merit here also goes to the forward sunbathing area and the table served by a comfortable sofa and a well-equipped barbecue unit. And finally, the aft area can be customized to hold either two chaises longues or the tender (to allow installation of a jet-ski on the lift swim platform). The cockpit shows itself to be extremely spacious and functional. The saloon

The Azimut 64

is at the center of a crossroads of light streaming in from the large windows and the threeleaf folding glass door. The galley, richly equipped with a marble counter top, electrical appliances, cooktop and sink, can be completely hidden from view by a leather-covered retractable top that folds like a compass and offers an additional support point in the living area. The eight-place dining table is surrounded on three sides by the dinette. The sofa section facing the two-seat helm station shares with it the power-assisted back with controls on the instrument console, which is designed to slide back and forth to serve either the saloon area or the pilot. The stairway that descends to the accommodation area, positioned immediately beneath the windscreen, offers generous dimensions for easy passage between the two decks in addition to bright lighting of the rooms below. Framed by the light, the extraordinary interior spaces offered by the Azimut 64 display the full level of comfort for which they were designed. On the lower deck each centimeter gained thanks to optimization of the structures and to innovative design of the passageways dedicated to the technical connections is transformed into pure comfort. The sober elegance that characterizes every piece of furniture and surface on board is the result of a stylistic choice that favors pickled oak and matches it with brown lacquered finishes. Natural leather covers the surfaces of shelves, tables, writing desks and furniture. The bed frames, sofas and seats throughout the yacht are completed by a covering at shoulder height which has an ergonomic function and increases the effect of softness and roundness of the furnishings, to which an original lighting design also contributes. The illumination dispenses with direct lights for a softer diffused effect produced by longitudinal lighting strips.

The Azimut 64

The area devoted to the owner is a temple of relaxation and functionality. Four large windows illuminate a room that also finds space for a dinette and two comfortable sofas. The storage spaces are maximized, as testified by the lift-up double bed offering space for voluminous luggage. The bathroom is placed so as to provide insulation from the engine compartment for greater acoustic comfort in the owner’s suite and has a shower stall that is separate from the rest of the room.

Dream Yachts

The VPI cabin, located in the bow, has been studied in the smallest detail to achieve maximum storage space and a top-of-the-category bath with shower stall. The volume design also made it possible to have a large, comfortable crew cabin, which on the Azimut 64 is particularly spacious to afford welldeserved repose to reward the effort that goes into making the owner’s vacation as agreeable as possible.

Scubacraft: The World’s Most Advanced Watercraft?

THE SCUBACRAFT

THE WORLD’S MOST ADVANCED WATERCRAFT? The good folks at Scubacraft have done their magic and have come up with something that, while being a zippy watercraft on the water, is a supercool battery driven submersible beneath the surface. The Scubacraft is “the result of engineering development; form dictated by function. Scubacraft is a product that addresses the need for people to travel from the shore directly to a dive location and more easily underwater.”

Calling the vessel “the ultimate watercraft”, the Scubacraft is operated by a singe person both above and below the water surface. On the surface, the combustion engine is used for power. While submerged, the main engine shuts down and seals airtight before sinking into the water. Batteries provide power for it’s four motors, while hydrofins control the direction. The Scubacraft is designed to have a slight positive buoyancy at all times, using the power of the thrusters to dive. Should power be lost the craft will float back up to the surface. A nice safety feature. However, the Scubacraft is also able to lose this positive buoyancy in a special “park”, thus allowing you to leave the craft and explore.

Scubacraft: The World’s Most Advanced Watercraft?

Dream Toys

An entirely new generation of watercraft that combines surface performance with dynamic control underwater.

The lightweight trimaran hull craft features an on board GPS, a dive computer, and a VHF radio with underwater communication capability. The craft also sports a jet drive with a high performance pump, inflatable control, and hydrodynamic control. James Brown, Sales and Marketing Director for Scubacraft, says, “Scubacraft incorporates scalable platform technology and one of the benefits of this; is that we are able to deliver bespoke products that meet and exceed customer’s requirements.” Combining surface performance with dynamic underwater control, the Scubacraft provides the best of above and under water boating … all in one watercraft. What more could we ask for?

The Emocean 200M Gigayacht

Focusing on creating a yacht that is selfcontained with all of life’s entertainment luxuries onboard, Emocean presents Project 1,000, a concept for a world beating 200-metre yacht. The inspiration behind this project was to create the ultimate yacht in terms of size and facilities onboard. With this yacht the owner can stay onboard much longer being able to run their business life as well as being a place to relax. The type of person who would own this size of yacht will have very large properties on land and be accustom to living in large spaces, therefore if we can recreate it on water then

they would feel as if they could spend more time onboard.� Catering for up to 45 guests with an owners deck, 10 VIP suites and 22 guest suites with 70 crew and numerous bars and relaxation areas there is no shortage of things to do. Featuring a drive-in tender garage, vehicle garage, two 30-metre day boats, and a helipad and hanger, the guests can choose from an extensive variety of options for exploring and travel to and from the yacht.
