Living in San Diego you get to see mainly the same colors and styles in architecture. Most of these colors remind me of our local Hotel La Quinta. This is why I would like to show you how a color can be used to brighten up any building’s exterior and to bring energy to any neighborhood.
This industrial building is located in Mexico, Toluca, near Mexico City. It was designed by architecture firm Rojkind Arquitectos. The building accommodates laboratories, offices, auditorium and tasting areas. But could you possibly tell what’s inside? Not if you do not get close and ask.
Cheerful yellow colors make this building attractive and fun to be in! See more images HERE.
This colorful production factory is located in Pola de Lena, in Asturias, northern Spain. One of the main motivations of the project was to transmit the sensation of sharp contrast between different parts of the local land, when integrating the factory within the landscape.
This colorful contrast was achieved by colored glazing on large windows.
The glass panels are made from silk printed tempered glass, using double glazing in office areas and single glazing in factory areas. The colors have been selected in harmony with the colors of the surrounding landscape taking into account seasonal changes. See more images HERE.
And finally, my favorite Santa Monica Civic Center Parking Structure in California. The design team was challenged to create a building that exemplified the city’s commitment to sustainable design while strengthening the urban fabric.
One of the challenges for this project was to create a nice architecture out of a common building type – parking garage. See more images HERE.
