Throw your preconceived notions about this surprisingly versatile hue out the window.
Pink may have been pigeonholed as the go-to hue for little girls’ rooms and otherwise feminine spaces, but the rosy color has the capacity to be so much more. With shades ranging from pale and ethereal to vibrant and powerful, pink has a place just about anywhere, whether it be indoors or out—coating the entire facade of a building or gracing the bathroom in the form of floor-to-ceiling tile. Don’t believe us? Take a look at how the designs below used pink as a power color.
Mexico City–based architecture firm PPAA designed a 624-square-foot, modular concrete dwelling with a dusty pink finish as one of 32 housing proposals—each representing one of Mexico’s 32 states—designed for Laboratorio de Vivienda, a showcase of easily replicable, affordable, and environmentally friendly homes in Apan, Hidalgo. At a cost of just $18,000 to build, it employs locally sourced, cost-effective materials to keep within its tight budget.Rafael GamoPhoto Categories:exterior, house building type, concrete siding material, flat roofline.
