Live Modern: Suntro House

Architecture & Interiors

Last night I was thinking about getting business cards with rounded corners and I thought to myself how nice rounded corners are. They’re still structural but not too harsh. They still tell a shape story but just not scream it from the rooftops. They are sleek, but also kind of soft. If a rounded-corner business card was a woman she’d be really toned but still curvy.

What? Check out this house: Suntro House. It features architecture with some pretty sumptuously rounded corners. It’s still a modern, streamlined, rectangular volume that you see and feel an impact from, but you also sense its softening of the entire modern exterior. You sense this as a home that is modern and sleek with sharp angles and straight lines, but also with soft textiles and a few curves and proof that life is best when it’s a mix of the best parts of all ideas. Designed by Jorge Hernandez de la Garza. Located in Oaxtepec, Mexico. We even spotted in a photo where a corner of a sidewalk was rounded. Love that attention to detail.

    Waaoow, what material is that? What impressed me isn’t the rounded corners, but how the house magically reflects the colours of the sky… Amazing.
