    This place doesn't look comfy or really relaxing at all to me. Oh, the art sucks too.

    Nope, too cold and impersonal. Looks like a Frank Lloyd Wright museum setting or something (without the FLW architecture).

    not impressed. they have a few really interesting pieces of art, but i hate the furniture and the mustard yellow walls. don't love the house itself either.

    althought not for me and not my taste, I do appreciate that they used different textures, colors, materials, etc. to make their boxes. Much better than just white boxes with cut out windows. I think the 'earthy' outside tones go better with the surroundings.

    Also like the indoor spaces..now the decor..that is another matter...but not too bad.

    Never thought of that...I would be like one of those cats they place next to a glass floor..and it hesitates to move even though it can feel the glass...I would be moving around like a blind person..hands out..feeling for something solid..you would have to put 'things' on the glass like people do for sliding glass doors..and then the place would really look like shit!
