Ovar Red House

Obviously what jumped at us was the color here, but the intriguing aspect of it is how it’s shaded and aged so beautifully. We might be wrong of course but this feels like the last building painted with lime and traditional pigments in the country. Needless to say it won’t last long, and if it doesn’t get torn down we can see it plastered in cement and covered in monotonous acrylic paint (let alone its windows replaced in PVC).  One day we will catch up… till then we have the photo.
