Lagula Arquitectes has created a unique facade for an apartment building based in Badalona, Spain. Made up of colorful ceramic blocks, it has a pixelated aesthetic that makes it appear like one large art piece. Although far from simple, there is something basic about the design that shows other architects how they can add a fun visual element to their designs as well.

Not only does Lagula Arquitectes bring color to the building, it also brings texture. Other than this particular focus, the Spanish structure is much the same as similar designs around it. By bringing a fun element by way of different materials, Lagula Arquitectes demonstrates that a 'conceptual' building doesn't have to be too far-fetched. This design also helps to elevate the look of the neighborhood it's based in.
