About Spanish Colonial Architecture

The Spanish Colonial style architecture developed as a response to the sometimes primitive, arid and tropical climates of the Spanish Colonies. As such, it is characteriized by simple, solid construction with decorative ornamental elements inspired by Italian Renaissance or Iberian Baroque styles.

The Spanish Colonial house is frequently stuccoed adobe or masonry and often has soft, rounded corners, courtyard walls, and covered porches providing shade. The Spanish Missions built in the southwest and California responded differently to their specific regions but were vernacular expressions of contemporary Mexican churches and farm buildings of the time. Their details can range from highly decorated to austere, primarily as a result of their financial position and their date of construction.

Spanish Colonial Style Mouldings

Spanish colonial style architecture incorporates exactly the same architectural vocabulary of other western traditions, but frequently the elements are created in stone or plaster rather than wood. While is it typically used only minimally and with great restraint, wood moldings can be found in this style, commonly seen in shapes such as the quirk, ogee, quarter round, and fillets,
