I've been in some marina city units and the spaces don't really seem that strange.

They are smaller than I would like though...maybe the larger units are fine but the one bedrooms have fairly cramped kitchens for the time period and not much in the way of shared eating/living space.

Tons of deck space though...even in the studio units.

Those who's feet are used for walking around, not measuring.

You do realise that both systems come from Europe, don't you?

You mean that wave/storm breaker in front of our coast is part of Europe?

You do realise that I'm joking, don't you?
post #2801 of 3694
Yup, it's just banter isn't it?

I do miss the pictures of proper architecture and comments in this thread though..

I do, but I was responding to Loathing because:

Anyhoo, back to architecture...

In a multi-bedroom home, which implies to me the presence of others in the house, why would you make the master bedroom open to the public areas? Visual privacy, but no aural separation. Did the architect not consider that the occupants of the master suite might want to have, um, relations while others are in the house?

Obviously you're joking, I just find it funny how Americans so persistently misuse the label "Europeans".

Normal people would have curtains etc.
