Hello Friends, While it’s always prudent to be cautious, it’s fair to say that our economy turned a corner, or at least took a gradual ‘bend’ in the right direction, earlier this year. Our real estate market breathed a sigh of relief and the realtors that service that market are looking at the glass half full again, instead of half empty. While it typically takes longer for the effects of economic recovery to work their way up to the luxury real estate market, we’ve already seen some very strong signs including two record setting sales in our own back yard in Calgary. Congratulations go to the Gordon Ross team for their role in the sale of the hockey legend’s property. Congratulations also to Christa Frosch of Sotheby’s International Realty for her role in achieving Canada’s highest priced property sale for 2009 at $13.1M just south of Calgary. We’ve got a fantastic issue for you with pages lined with sumptous “dream homes” and “dream living” content from one end to the other. I’ll wager you’ll have a hard time putting it down. The property on the cover is a beautiful executive home with all the comforts one’s heart could desire. Don’t miss reading about this excellent find within our pages this issue. We have a fantastic article on the conversion of a retired oil rig into a lavish floating condominium resort. Read also about cruising the pacific in Beneteau’s new 40 footer, Ducatti’s new speed demon, Todd Reed’s organic jewellery, exotic treasures in Inglewood, Japanese innovations in the Kitchen and how Nissan plans to turn a new leaf! As always, I invite your thoughts and comments. Write to me at sam@dreamtropolis.com. Until next time - my very best to you.

Sam Dhand.

Given that space is a premium on the country’s four major islands, the need to marry aesthetic concerns with technological advances is a necessity as opposed to a playful afterthought.

The result is a multi-purpose unit and a firm structure delivering dependable utility while also being able to freely adapt to a variety of special configurations. Endless possibilities are available to optimize the footprint of the unit in any space while adding a deft aesthetic flair. Toyo Kitchen and Living Company’s Isola S kitchen island, is an application of this philosophy to kitchen design. Named for a sculptural islet in the Mediterranean and designed by Milan-based Setsu and Shinobu Ito, the Isola S embodies the organic, flowing form in stainless steel using processing technology and careful handwork. Two independent halves shapes mimic

One unit comprises the kitchen part with an oval sink and three electric cooking rings, while the other provides plenty of counter prep space. All kitchen essentials can be neatly hidden away in corrugated-bottom drawers built into the units.
