Coloured walls – inspirations from designer Guillermo Santomà’s home

Bright nuances radically restyled a villa from 1920s, turning it into a contemporary dream

Dietro alla porta originale degli anni ’20 si sviluppa la sorprendete e coloratissima Casa Horta del designer Guillermo Santomà alla periferia di Barcellona

 

Coloured walls are the basis of a restyling project of an abandoned villa from the 1920s on the outskirts of Barcelona. The idea behind this project? Transforming this Spanish building into a contemporary, playful and cheerful space, to be the home of Guillermo Santomà, one of the most emerging Catalan designers of the latest generation. 

 

Casa Horta is a house on three floors with a surprising chromatic palette. Bright pink, dark green and blue colour the walls to give the house a strong and contemporary personality. The fluid shapes of interiors remind us of the deeply rooted traditions of 1900s Catalan architecture. 

Floors and doors are some of the interiors that maintain a connection with the past. The rest of the house has an Escher-like style, with stairs mixing up with modern arcs and small internal windows giving surprising views. 

The project was completed in collaboration with Albert Guerra and a team of only five people. It is characterised by an extraordinary colour scheme that creates a fresh and out-of-the-box atmosphere.

 

The house was cut, dissected and reassembled with fake skylights to create a new way of getting the light in, which is the essential element to play with the coloured walls.

The inspirations for this project are many: Gaudi, Escher, Bofill, you name it. But Santomà might be enough, as he is the designer who absorbed the culture and infused it into this house.

Sloping surfaces, modern frescos on the ceilings, slanting walls and defining colours are just some of the features of this modern house. Thanks to its bright chromatic palette, it is able to give a sensation of redundancy, even if surrounded by a rigorous graphic minimalism. 

.

A dream house? Perhaps we would all love to fall asleep looking at the candy pink clouds painted on the ceiling.
