Appreciation towards Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura for providing the following description:
红墙（La Muralla Roja）是环境中一个显眼的存在。建筑融入了阿拉伯地中海地区极受欢迎的建筑形式，尤其是北非高耸的土砖塔楼。红墙如同矗立的城堡一般，沿着岩石绝壁延伸开来。
Within the context of La Manzanera, La Muralla Roja (The Red Wall) asks to be considered as a case apart. It embodies a clear reference to the popular architecture of the Arab Mediterranean, in particular to the adobe towers of North Africa. The Red Wall is like a fortress which marks a vertical silhouette following the contour lines of the rocky cliff.

Taller de Arquitectura试图通过这栋建筑重新阐释地中海文明的城堡传统，从而打破后文艺复兴时代中公共和私人空间的分隔。这座城堡迷宫般的构造形式基于五米长的希腊十字架几何构造，厨房、卫生间如同塔楼般连接着各个不同的空间，组合出多样化的平面布局方式。建筑的几何学构造与其建构方式遥相呼应，让La Muralla Roja成为了数学与建筑的连接。
With this building the Taller de Arquitectura wanted to break the post-Renaissance division between public and private spaces reinterpretating the Mediterranean tradition of the casbah. The labyrinth of this recreated casbah corresponds to a precise geometric plan based on the typology of the Greek cross with arms 5 meters long, these being grouped in different ways, with service towers (kitchens and bathrooms) at their point of intersection. The geometric basis of the layout is also an approximation to the theories of constructivism, and makes La Muralla Roja a very clear evocation of these.

The forms of the building, evoking a constructivist aesthetic, create an ensemble of interconnected patios which provide access to the 50 apartments, which include 60 sqm studios, and two- and three-bedroom apartments of 80 and 120 sqm, respectively. On the roof terraces there are solariums, a swimming pool, and a sauna for resident’s use.

The criterion of applying to the building a gamut of various colours responds to the intention to give a determined relief to the distinct architectural elements, according to their structural functions. The outside surfaces are painted in various tones of red, to accentuate the contrast with the landscape; patios and stairs, however, area treated with blue tones, such as sky-blue, indigo, violet, to produce a stronger or weaker contrast with the sky or, on the contrary, an optical effect of blending in with it. The intensity of the colours is also related to the light and shows how the combination of these elements can help create a greater illusion of space.
