Practical Tips For Women and More

Years back before the first all glass underwater restaurant named Ithaa established in Maldives, people already think about underwater / undersea structure for a restaurant establishment. The ‘Red Sea Star’ restaurant located in Eliat Israel was built in 1998. The interior encorporates really nice underwater detail design elements created by ayala serfaty from Aqua Creation.

The Red Sea Star enables you to “sense the sea” through a “dry diving experience” and to discover the magnificent and exciting underwater world of the Red Sea. A breathtaking view of hundreds of various tropical sea creatures in the colorful coral garden is seen through 62 panoramic amorphous windows surrounding the observatory, located five meters below the sea level.

The Red Sea Star is probably the only night-observatory in the world. Our guests enjoy the rare sight of the aquatic kingdom at night, when the underwater garden is softly lit, without disturbing the natural inhabitants.

The Red Sea Star is a “green” project. Our marine life experts and skilled divers have been working for years to save, reconstruct, preserve and nurture the coral reef surrounding the project.

This gorgeous underwater shot is the Red Sea Star Restaurant. It looks out in to the coral reef in the tropical resort city of Eilat, Israel. The reef-restaurant combination was actually established by the restaurant management. To get the reef started, they built an iron meshwork and translated many species of broken coral colonies to it. What an awesome place to go and have dinner when you just happen to be traveling through Isreal for the week.

Design that conserves space

We ought to be thankful to live in the U.S. because of those extra spaces we have. We even have a big garage to store all of our junk =P (living the American dreams) Imagine people living in small tight spaces like in Japan or some other places, like big cities in Europe, where big space is a rarity. Actually, I wrote this topic because I just received an e-mail from a girl friend of mine with all pictures above as an attachment. She was inspired to create an additional bathroom that conserve space at her home. Now that it’s done, I thought she did a remarkable job. It’s amazing how we can actually utilize and conserving spaces whether through remodeling or new-built extensions to our living spaces, however we never actually take that into our consideration, cuz I think, we all just get too comfortable with all the big spaces we have =).

Having to deal with small spaces aren’t all that bad after all. Actually with a good design you can work it all into a very lovable space. Try to play with colors, materials, and functions. All together will make it worth doing – because I’ve seen it done at my friend’s place.

Thanks to Yuli for all the pictures and tips.
