Seeing red!

It's pretty unusual to see bright color buildings like this red one in Paris... that is precisely why I stopped on my way and took this shot at rue de la Glacière in the 13th arrondissement. It's pretty unusual because as you can guess there are strict regulations in Paris, when it comes to building/ renovating/ painting a building and a facade. Only it depends on the area (you surely could not paint a Haussmann building in red!) and if you manage to get the authorization for the town hall. They obviously did!


  1. Wow, that really stands out! What is this building used for? Retail? Offices? Apartments?

  2. Isn't this the same arondissement in which the Wallace water fountains are also painted bright red?
