Color-blocking Home Edition

On the Slovenian coast in Izola, lies this block of mind-blowing apartments designed by the architecture team known as  Ofis Architekti.  Their stunning design of two buildings each containing 30 units of varying size (ranging from studios to three-bedrooms) won them an award in a national design competition.   The trapezoidal-shaped balconies do a smashing job of accentuating external perspectives and views directly to the sea, but my favorite part has got to be how Ofis wrapped sunshades in the form of colourful canvas awnings around the blocks balconies.
