The former train station in Bielefeld's Jöllenbeck district became the "House of Dentistry". The color scheme of the facade is continued harmoniously inside.

To reproduce historical design elements in an abstract form - this was the basis for the design concept by architect Thomas Brewitt for the old train station. The facade and roof of the house built in 1929 have been preserved. Only the one-story buildings behind the house were torn down to make room for the new, modern extension. Due to its proportion, materiality and color, the new building is harmoniously connected to the old building. Design features such as the historical window shutters are characteristic of the external appearance of the old building. Thorsten Brummel had been commissioned with the entire trade, facade, interiors and floors, and was faced with the challenge of finding a way how the folding shutters on the old building could be remapped on the renovated facade.

Would it be possible to simply replicate the shutters with a suitable filler? This idea resulted in a clever, surprisingly easy to implement solution.

With a fiber-reinforced facade renovation filler, a filler was available in powder form, which was ideally suited for this project thanks to its high filling and durability. Using a self-made tool, a facade renovation spatula was applied and modeled to the desired shape of the folding shutters. As a white, contrasting plaster structure, the shutters stand out from the gray surfaces of the facade. This effect is reinforced by the very finely cleaned facade surfaces. The result is deceptively real-looking shutters.

The color scheme is very similar to that of the old train station: gray and white are the basis of the color concept. The change from white to gray areas in the window area found in the old building as well as the plinths and cornices were also transferred to the new building.

Walls, floors, ceilings

The craftsmen equipped the extension with a mineral thermal insulation composite system before the plastering work began. As a top coat, Evocryl 200 was applied to all facade surfaces.

The dark, anthracite-colored floor has an earthy effect and allows the gray and white coloring to come into its own. Walls and ceilings impress with a high-quality appearance with smooth, even surfaces with a dull matt sheen.

Lighting and design

In the treatment room, even the smallest details down to the finest color differences of teeth must be recognizable, while in the reception and waiting area and in the corridors there is a compromise between lighting and atmospheric design. Different light and grazing light situations, such as those found by the painters here, reinforce the visual perception of unevenness in the surface and make roller approaches in the coating visible. In addition to the careful preparation of the substrate, coating solutions with a long open time, good opacity and an excellent flow were required to achieve a homogeneous, batch-free surface appearance.
