Arquitectura-G is an architecture agency based in Barcelona and whose recent project "Reforma de una vivienda en la Tallada " Caught our attention... Each time their projects create a reflection on contemporary architecture, its place, its goals and its relation to trends. True adventurers of architecture, the protagonists ofArquitectura-G have dared to appropriate The red... But what power gives this color to our spaces?

Unlike most European countries that hold the neutral tones in awe, Spain is deeply attached to the red color. It is part of its history, its traditions, and symbolizes the warmth of the country Both from a point of view of his art of living, and from his climate, of course.

Indeed the red has all its place in the work ofArquitectura-G, as for example in the work of another architect established in Barcelona, Guillermo Santoma. Thus, we remember that this color had already challenged us during its project of Herbalism in 2016 (photo on the top left). and the agency Arquitectura-G Nor is it at his first Test run. These Spanish architects who have a daily concern to improve the lives of everyone in the form and organization of the spaces where they evolve, have already shaken the foundations of the very architecture that is intended to be neutral, immaculate and above all not colorful to many Times. But what would Spain be without the red, and its architects, without this ingenious folly grain able to differentiate them?

Red is a powerful color, which leaves no one indifferent. It leaves us no choice because often the sentence is radical, You like it or you don't like it, no one can stay neutral in front of her. Because what it symbolizes is also very far from the passive...

Often because its presence would be too exciting and would supposedly put our nerves to vivid, the red holds its (bad) Reputation of its non-negligible symbolic that we all know instinctively. The power, the blood, the fire, the carnal or even the fight, it appears hostile to us And so we consciously ruled it out. Become a sort of pariah in the large family of colors, it is probably because its symbolic is negative that we have not looked further...

And yet: this warmth, this immediate comforting effect that we feel in the presence of red is undeniable. It encompasses us as a protective cocoon, and generally becomes a support area. Fortifying also, it brings us joy but above all strength and courage to confront what surrounds us, and is also the color of security and rescue. So, friend or enemy?

And that's all the genius ofArquitectura-G, who was able to take advantage of the unique and somewhat scary nature of the red. Just like the pink color in retail, its faults have become the assets which showcase the atypical spaces that the Spanish studio enjoys. Not to mention that this color, just like white, yellow and orange, is capable of returning sun rays. It therefore allows, contrary to our beliefs, to illuminate a space As little as it is not a cellar.

Moreover, it will be noted that the architects have taken care to balance its immediate and strong effect by numerous arcs and other rounded shapes in architecture, openings and staircase (very common in Spanish architecture). The verticality of this incredible house is still saved, thanks to the support of guidelines that reinforce and reveal these spaces. Alternately matt, fluffy or shiny, the red color gives this house a new life Thanks to the genius ofArquitectura-G.
