LA MANTILLA - ARCHITECT JACQUES FERRIER

HAVE A LOOK AT THIS FACADES..

The name that identifies the project says everything: Mantilla is a lace or silk scarf worn by women, mainly in Spain, over the head and shoulders. That’s what this geometrical pattern recalls creating a figurative connection with Mediterranean architectural language. In this case this pattern takes the form of a lattice that wraps around the balconies and loggias. ( source: spacesxplaces )
