Located in Montería, Colombia, this exquisite family residence comes from Antonio Sofan Architecture and Interiors Studio and has a unique design in shades of blue. According to the Freshome :
The house was constructed within the Sinu Valley, known as one of the most fertile lands on the globe and has wonderful views of the Sinu River. The construction has a total building area of 500 square meters. Painted in blue and white, its exterior stands out and contrasts the green surroundings while offering a very pleasant sight. A large outdoor pool is said to cool off the warm breeze coming from the near-by river and create an enjoyable atmosphere for the home owners. As we step inside, more surprises await. The interior design is absolutely spectacular, featuring unusual color combination and original furniture ideas and arrangements. [ Antonio Sofan Architecture and Interiors Studio ]
Modern House Design
This Verdant Avenue House was designed by Robert Mills Architects.
According to the DigsDigs : It is a home that showcases a modern aesthetic, form, function and details alongside the nature. Besides, the home is sustainable without losing in glamour, luxury and pleasure of living there. An 80 year old pin oak tree serves as the focal point for the ground floor living and first floor bedroom areas. A striking 3.5 meter wide spiral staircase is an another focal point on this floor. Floor to ceiling glass windows also add a dramatic touch to the interior. The exterior entertaining spaces separated from the ground floor areas by glass walls and sliding doors. There is a 25 metre lap pool outside, which runs the length of the building and provides natural evaporative cooling to the living areas.

Description from architects:
Alterations carried out to a Federation bungalow to provide a new Family Room, Kitchen and Dining Area. Extensions and building envelop performance were tightly controlled to keep within the limits of the exiting air conditioning system.
Full width aluminium sliding doors were positioned along the back wall incorporating high performance glass. A significant design element is the use of the hanging corner making the building more open and giving a better connection to outside. The verandah was extended to match and large rainwater storage tanks positioned below. Designed by Tom Bombford Studio.
This Grow Up Light – Table was designed by Kwon Jae Min. Table combined with lamp. Please visit Kwon Jae Min site for further detail.

Gaudi Chair has a structure of glass-filled Nylon covered by a shell of carbon fiber. The nylon structure is slective-laser-sintered (3D printing) by the Dutch company ‘Freedom of Creation’.
Designed using the same methods as Antoni Gaudi, who made models of changing chains, that upside-down showed him the strongest shapes for his churches. In the chair, the chain-models are combined with a software script to generate the structure of the ribs. This is necessary because of the complexity of the forces in a chairs backrest.
High-end materials and techniques were used to create a lightweight chair. [ Bram Geenen ]
