“Glass is the portal through which we experience light in the built environment. Adding color to that glass, whether it is in exterior glazing, interior partitions, furniture or art, elevates the experience of light.”

Lofts in Color

Architects: Rearquitectura / Antonio Menéndez Ferrer – Cristian Barrientos Vera
Location: Cerro Yungay, Valparaiso, Chile

Lofts Yungay II is a collective housing building located in the outskirts of the World Heritage Area of Valparaíso, Chile. This city is one of the largest Chilean ports in the Pacific Ocean. Valparaiso’s landscape is very characteristic due to its many hills packed with colorful houses almost falling out of the cliffs.  Each house is different from one another, but together they create a harmonic landscape.

“Color and light must be entirely melted into one and felt as such – and light must be expressed as it is felt as color.”

Therefore, it is an effective color to use in rooms with harsh light and where the climate is dry.
