I would say the place is just interesting, it is clear that it was built inspired by Gaudi's recognized work in Barcelona.

Casa Terracota a house made of clay, big pottery piece created by Colombian Architect Octavio Mendoza Morales. Beautiful kitschy with wonderfully executed interiors. He uses porcelain tiles, stained glass, wrought iron to create a wonderful livable space. A must see.
