95 % of the historic houses in the neighbourhood were originally made of red brick. Since they were built a hundred years ago, they have been sold many times and every new owner could have changed the house’s appearance. Maybe they wanted to paint it blue or black. The traditional method would be to build entirely red houses and just wait for people to paint it themselves. But we wanted to fit into the history by creating houses in different colours. A challenging task in this context was to find matching colours for the brick and the roofs. We wanted a uniform look, but we could not make everything bespoke and special, as there was not enough money. In the end we chose Egernsund Wienerberger bricks in the colours red, brown and grey on the façade, combined with the roofs in the same three colours. For some further detail on the façade, we used the same colours for the plaster areas between the bricks and above the ground. That makes it kind of special.
