When seeing homes like Blanco de Ibiza, the first thing that crosses my mind is that the ancient Greek gods knew exactly what a healthy, tidy and abundant life was all about. Reflected upon the “mortals”, this made them crave for a god-like lifestyle treatment. It is hard to say what triggers the idea that an exclusive lifestyle comes from “above”, but like me, many imagine that the Mediterrean iconic figures drift into a sea of luxury and comfort. The house was built more than 30 years ago and it has been recently restored by the architect Malales Martinez Canut, pointing on the perfect blending of two diverse architectural styles, Mediterrean and Spanish.
Blanco de Ibiza, as the name sais it, is a gorgeous large white “palace” with Mediterrean accents and wooden furniture from Bali. The breezy environment sprinkled with natural fabrics such as reed, cotton and the natural colors such as green or blue create the perfect spot for relaxation. With a stunning view upon the Mediterrean Sea, Blanco de Ibiza is simply enchanting. The infinite blue horizon reflects in all those turquise subtle elements of décor, that scatter over the lounge chairs. Old authentic fabrics meet new, contemporary materials, creating a unique style. Embracing the Mediterrean breeze, the beautiful oasis of tranquility, created by Malales Martinez Canut, expands its charm upon the “mortals”, just like the nectar “conquered” the Greek gods.

After all the excitement from the Yves Behar-designed OUYA console’s massive Kickstarter campaign fades away, like every other console it will be judged on the quality of its games we finally have the name of one. Robotoki president Robert Bowling — best known as @fourzerotwo on Twitter and formerly as a producer from Infinity Ward for the Call of Duty series — has announced plans to bring an “episodic prequel” to the company’s first game Human Element exclusively to OUYA. While not much is known about Human Element yet other than that it’s a survival game set in a zombie apocalypse it’s scheduled for release in 2015, although Bowling is promising OUYA backers will get exclusive access to updates during development. He can also be counted among that group, cheerfully noting in a video along with the announcement that he’s contributed $10,000 to the cause. That’s one project on the list — any bets on which developer will be next to hitch their game to the bandwagon?

Not to be outdone by that red Galaxy S III over at AT&T, Sprint has confirmed that its inadvertent ad posting wasn’t just a fluke: it’s bringing out a white version of the EVO 4G LTE. Strictly speaking, it’s more of a aluminum-with-white-accents trim, but we’ll let that slide given that the back and kickstand are now decidedly less smudge-prone. The white EVO will cost as much as that Galaxy S III variant (and the black EVO) at $200 on a contract. Sprint will start selling the white hue on July 15th — and unlike AT&T, it should have phones on shelves rather than leave customers to online window shopping.

Despite it’s rocky start, we wouldn’t blame you for being a little jealous of Sprint’s tight integration with Google Voice. Well, the relationship between the two might not be exclusive for much longer. Vincent Paquet, Product Manager for Google Voice, told CNET in an interview that the web giant is actively talking to other carriers about forming a similar bond. Paquet didn’t name any names unfortunately, but we’re hoping one of the other major national providers here in the US is on the short list of potential corporate polygamist partners. If we’re lucky, getting your Verizon phone to play nice with Google Voice’s voicemail inbox will soon be a lot simpler. Or, at least it’ll be easier to send those stubborn exes straight to voicemail.

This next residential project comes from Singapore-based architects ONG&ONG. Named 72 Sentosa Cove House, the residence is located in an exclusive oceanfront residential community in the East of Sentosa Island in Singapore. The architects needed to maximize the space and ensure the inhabitant’s privacy while constructing a comfortable yet luxurious residence. Neighbouring houses are situated very close to the house, so the architects made sure that the family had a fresh and private outdoor source of air by adding an enclosed central courtyard in the middle of the house. This also acts like a light chimney for the nearby interior spaces. Surrounded by heavy foliage, the house is protected from indiscrete eyes and allows fresh, clean air to freely move through the house. Designed for a young couple and their children, the house’s features include a lap pool and training room that ensure a healthy and balanced lifestyle. The architecture of this house cares for every need: “The building’s slimmer east and west facades are a contrast to the wide-open north and south ones. This regulates natural lighting and wind ventilation for efficient thermal circulation. A pitched roof, with its series of repeating slopes, also generates additional skylight openings.” Fabulously modern, 72 Sentosa Cove House connects multiple areas – both private and public – into a series of well-planned spaces that greet the family with a comforting feeling.
