Cool v. Cold

I've been looking at modern architecture lately. For my tastes there is a line you can cross where cool looking houses turn into cold looking houses. As you cross this line residences start to look like small museums.
This house in this photo has cool shapes and ideas but is still warm enough to feel like a house. I think color and material have a lot to do with it. Polished, white, sharp and sterile just don't feel like home to me.
