Hotel design: In the Familotel Feldberger Hof the break from everyday life begins with parking. A colorful stripe pattern on the walls of the hotel garage immediately lifts the mood - no matter how long and exhausting the trip was. The concept by Caparol color designer Petra Ruhnau ensures an unusually happy reception. Achim Zielke MA Instead of accepting the typical “gray-in-gray” of many functional buildings, any renovation and repair work is advisable in order to set color accents with a well thought-out design concept. With a little courage and professional knowledge of colors, previously dreary floor, wall and ceiling surfaces can be designed in such a way that they offer a harmonious and varied ambience. This has been particularly successful in the Familotel Feldberger Hof in the Black Forest. The owner wanted to create a parking experience for families that fits the character of this extraordinary hotel complex.
Dynamic striped hotel design
"Soft, light color nuances alternate rhythmically with luminous tones in vertical stripes - the stripe look gets additional dynamics through the different width of the colored areas," says graduate designer Petra Ruhnau from the Caparol Color Design Studio in Ober-Ramstadt, describing her design. While the ceiling was coated with the universal color Amphibolin white on a total area of 4,000 square meters, significantly more color gradations were provided for the concrete walls: A total of 1,500 square meters of wall and ceiling area were coated in 24 different colors from the 3-D color fan from Caparol. “Out of three designs that the Caparol Color Design Studio had worked out for the hotel garage in the Feldberger Hof, the client chose the one with the vertical stripes. Particularly likedthat the vertical alignment of the pattern makes the parking decks appear higher; an impression that the white ceiling paint additionally reinforces. The stripe pattern was used on the parking levels, while the stairwells are kept in a continuous color,”site manager Ingo Görsmeier describes the invigorating ambience that drivers receive in the Feldberger Hof. The experienced construction worker was able to rely entirely on the recommendations of the paint wholesaler Klotz in Freiburg for the material procurement. Sales representative Bernd Hafner, who is a master painter himself, advised Görsmeier in all phases of preparation and execution, mixed the desired tints using ColorExpress and organized all partial deliveries to the construction site. The material ready for processing arrived just in time at the time of need. "Thanks to the perfectly coordinated collaboration with Farben Klotz and the personal commitment of Bernd Hafner, who provided material supplies and the necessary machine technology even at the weekend, we saved a tremendous amount of time," emphasizes site manager Ingo Görsmeier, who has a reputation with his clients to personally guarantee a smooth, delay-free construction process.personally guarantee a smooth, delay-free construction process.personally guarantee a smooth, delay-free construction process.
Skilled in all trades
The Feldberger Hof is Ingo Görsmeier's best-known reference property. With his construction planning business, the trained carpenter has specialized in the renovation, renovation and design of hotels. He was able to complete the paint application on the garage walls with a small team of craftsmen on all three parking levels within just four weeks. One level was blocked for a little more than a week to keep the remaining parking spaces free for hotel guests.
Characteristic color worlds
The three parking levels in the Feldberger Hof each have their own entrances and exits. “They differ optically in that each level is assigned its own main color. This recognition color - blue or green or red - is used on the respective supports, end walls and stairwells in different shades. The interplay of light shades of blue, which can be found on every level, creates three very different atmospheres,”explains Petra Ruhnau.
A real color experience
On level B, green tones dominate the picture from yellow-green to peppermint pastel to rich fir green, while at the top of deck C there is a maritime color mood with turquoise-blue to petrol-colored nuances. In order to make it easier for hotel guests to find their way, the hotelier wanted the front wall to adopt the color of the stairwells on all three parking levels, which Ingo Görsmeier implemented just as precisely as the application of the stripes: We managed to delimit the colored areas so precisely by: we threw a laser beam vertically on the wall. We were able to orientate ourselves wonderfully on him when masking the surfaces with a special tape that fits as tightly as possible even in the smallest of depressions on the concrete surface,”he reports. He doesn't reveal what the tape is called; just,that it is an extremely useful recommendation from master painter Bernd Hafner and is accordingly available from Farben Klotz in Freiburg, where Görsmeier covers all of his needs for paints, varnishes and building protection products. The good feeling of security can be created in new and older multi-storey and underground car parks by a differentiated color design of the individual parking levels. Action is required in any case. The overwhelming monotony of seemingly endless concrete-gray walls has to be transformed: If planners and architects take care to create a feel-good atmosphere in car parks and underground garages with selected colors, park guests and clients are best served. Every driver wants to feel safe and well looked after from the entrance to the exit. That should be the goal of contemporary coloring concepts for hotel garages. “Even ambitious design work can be carried out both expediently and beautifully with professional building protection products. Every hotelier, every housing company, every car park operator will be interested in it,”emphasizes color designer Petra Ruhnau, who is committed to the professional color design of living spaces with refreshing inventiveness.
