La Muralla Roja in Spain

La Muralla Roja, a Spanish Architecture Project, also known as The Red Wall, is a housing project from the architect Ricardo Bofill built nearly 50 years ago in the seaside cliff in Calpe, Alicante, Spain.

With a clear reference to the arab mediterranean, the building is like a fortress, which silhouette mimics the site’s cliffside geography.

La muralla Roja is also an avant-garde reinterpretation of the casbah, which is the walled citadel typical architecture in north african countries.

Nowadays, this modern illustration became very popular on social media, because of its instagramable colours, featuring various tones of red in the exterior, to accentuate the contrast with the landscape.

Nowadays, this modern illustration became very popular on social media, because of its instagramable colours, featuring various tones of red in the exterior, to accentuate the contrast with the landscape.

 On the contrary, the interlocking stairs, platforms, bridges and indoor patios were painted in blue tones, ranging from light to dark.

Depending on the weather conditions, the intention is to contrast with the blue sky or to create visually continuity with it.

This labyrinth took two decades to be finished and now is a full resort and apartment complex that features swimming pools, bars, restaurants and sports facilities.
