Bright colors are like accessories that can be used in stimulating ways. The most important colors on the architectural palette, however, are the whites, grays and umbers. They influence the atmosphere that characterizes a building. Intermediate shades of gray and umber such as this one are especially important because they avoid extremes and remain balanced in terms of color and lightness. They mediate between light and dark as well as chromatic and achromatic: they are the most “neutral” members of architecture’s major scale of colors.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
