http://vimeo.com/37244850

Every time there is a soccer match where the Argentinean National Team plays, hundreds of people writes thousands of encouragement messages on social networks. Unfortunately those messages are not read by the players. To solve that problem, Coca-Cola created “Papertweetos”.

Yes… a waste of paper, I think. But an interesting idea indeed.

Contemporary Dutch Mountain Home by Denieuwegeneratie

The team at the young Amsterdam studio, Denieuwegeneratie created an incredible hillside residence fittingly called the Dutch Mountain project.

To help blend the home with the natural, hilly terrain the design team built the contemporary residence on an artificial hill. Completely surround by woods, this beautiful abode’s best kept secret is on the interior design elements. The team utilized several repurposed items such as a car for shelving, and actual skateboard decks for stairs within the home.

The design teams describes the experience in the residence as such. “Either you are in a room, with a cave-like atmosphere, daylight coming to you through deep cuts in the mountain – or you are in the large open space in front of the stacked rooms”.
