La Muralla Roja

I stumbled across this Vogue feature on famous Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill's La Muralla Roja earlier this week and have been mesmerized ever since. It's located in Calp, which is in the south east of Spain and just across the ocean from Algeria.

Not gonna lie I was first captivated by the colors, but the precise geometric details present from its foundation to the finishes is what has really blown my mind. It's so pretty and perfect. Built in 1973, it's Arab Mediterranean influence is undeniable. It is the coolest maze of apartments I've ever seen. It also doesn't hurt that there's a rooftop pool and sauna overlooking the ocean. Feast your eyes below.
