Architecture’s Evolution Through the Abundant Use of Bold Colors by Kipseli Architects
As Kipseli Architects say, “every new housing project is a new relationship. And as we all know, relationships come with unique experiences and challenges.” The main challenge this time was how architecture would evolve through the abundant use of bold colors.
The owner is a young man who’s about to start his family’s dream. His favorite movie is “Star Wars,” and his favorite game is “Rubik’s Cube.” Therefore, the architects chose a color palette of white, blue, green, red, yellow, and orange (Rubik’s colors). The living space becomes white, both bedrooms are painted green and yellow, the bathroom is covered with bright red tiles, and blue details are carefully scattered throughout the house. It seems like the architect decided to start a color “war” with the dominating diffused orange color.
The house becomes a personal experience, physically and emotionally. The result is a dramatic architectural experience that pleases the playful owner’s eye as it creates an elegant, whimsical house that will accommodate his own galaxy of heroes.
