Spanish housing project injects a burst of colour into surroundings

Auckland apartment developers could do with taking a leaf out of Bailo + Rull's portfolio.

According to Designboom, the Barcelona-based architecture firm has just completed the finishing touches on 18 VPO, a social housing project comprising 18 apartments. 

The building's street façade enjoys a view of green spaces and balcony shields on this side act as a sun shade, while allowing some light through to the interior. The end result is anything but a blight on the urban landscape and surrounding environment.
