La Muralla Roja, which means "red wall" in Spanish, is a residential project located in the La Manzanera development in Calpe, Spain. The building is an explicit reference to the popular architecture of the Arab Mediterranean region, which was inspired by the Casbah tradition of the Mediterranean. The striking colours that cover the inside and outside facades either contrast with nature or complement its purity. The project forms a fortress that appears to emerge from the rocky cliff on which it stands. Its organization challenges the growing division between public and private Spaces by reinterpreting the Casbah, a walled castle typical of traditional architecture in the North African country. Featuring a series of interconnected staircases, platforms and Bridges, the organization is a modern example of the typical Casbah cycle, providing access to the 50 apartments that form La Muralla Roja.
