Enlivened façades

It is an optimistic time with colourful architecture. The primary colours – bright blues, reds and yellows – as well as a whole range of colour shades, mainly pastel tones, enliven the architecture. Combining traditional materials and synthetic products, the façades blend smooth and glossy surfaces with rough sections, catching the light. Buildings are embellished with works of art: mosaic panels and metal or glistening stained glass reliefs framed in concrete.
