The gable-standing old buildings in the Palatinate Hassloch inspired the designers of the color design studio by Caparol.

The street scene of Neugasse in Haßloch looks grown and varied. In the town with its approximately 21,000 inhabitants, the houses in the historic center are mostly on the gable side of the street directly on the sidewalk. So also in the Neugasse. The old buildings are mostly plastered and painted in a wide variety of colors. The mix of colors shapes the character of the street and creates a lively impression. The diverse designs of the plinths of the small, colorful houses are striking. Sometimes the plinths are unplastered from natural stones, sometimes they are plastered or clad with clinker, in between little walls with wooden fences. The different base heights are particularly interesting: In the perspective there is no continuous and "separating" line, but "the thread" keeps breaking off,starts again and thus ensures a moving up and down.

Three color schemes were created for the residential complex consisting of six houses. The first two variants show a color version, in which the houses are painted uni. The selected color range is based on the colors of the neighboring buildings. The third concept shows an outline with a base.

Semi-detached houses summarized in color

In color concept 1, the semi-detached houses are each summarized in color in sandy-yellowish and gray-greenish shades. Due to its striking location, the corner house to Kirchgasse was given a "special tone", a veiled red. The uniform garages in light gray connect. For the recesses in the house entrances, the color designers each chose a complementary color from the available color spectrum of the other houses. This accentuation simultaneously links the entire ensemble.

Every house with its own color

In color concept 2, each house is treated individually. This design is characterized by six different facade colors. The colors are sometimes a bit more intense than in the first draft. Light and dark shades alternate. A wide range of colors from veiled, natural tones is combined with white, connecting elements. The entrance areas are always in white and are additionally emphasized with a narrow band above the niche. This design variant particularly clearly reflects the color of the surroundings - a coherent appearance is created with the neighboring buildings.

White facades and colored plinths

Color concept 3 breaks new ground. The basic color of all houses is white. It forms the optical bracket. Special accents are set in the base area and they distinguish this design. The “color bases” in the ground floor zone are divided into three different heights: 1.20, 1.90 and 3.10 meters. It is astonishing that the colored areas are not based on the existing contours of window openings, but end freely in the middle of the area. It looks unconventional. “With this design, we took the different plinth heights in the neighborhood further. There are three different dimensions, which are set asymmetrically in accordance with the proportion of the houses. This creates a harmonious overall picture of the row of houses in the context of the environment,”explains Meike Kranz. The designer chose clear,timeless base colors, a total of six different shades. And even though the main facades are white, the new buildings with their unusual formal accents integrate well into the neighborhood.

When Eva Häckel presented it, it quickly became clear that Concept 3 was the favorite. The idea of playing with the plinth heights was very popular with Alexander Lakmann, the managing director of AR Wohnbau GmbH in Haßloch. This concept “dances out of line” and makes the row houses a real eye-catcher. The design proposal is currently being implemented. The result is eagerly awaited.

Designed in a photo-realistic way: by displaying the neighboring buildings, the row center house can be harmoniously adapted to the existing colors.

Design harmoniously

Owners of semi-detached or terraced houses often strive to stand out from the identical neighboring house through their individual coloring. Color designers and city planners, on the other hand, try to maintain a harmonious image of the place or to create it through the coloring. Hard color changes should be avoided, because this makes the adjacent buildings extremely different. This is an issue especially in double and row houses. Here, hard color changes seem strange and give the impression that the buildings, which are a structural unit, do not want to have anything to do with each other.

There are basically several options for designing semi-detached and terraced houses individually and yet in a way that matches them. For example, in that all houses have the same color, but structural details such as window frames, canopies, doors or the plinths are accented with different colors. If identical parts are accentuated, the overall picture is particularly harmonious. Or a color concept is created that provides an individual color for each house: This can create a coherent, exciting sequence of color nuances that vary in brightness, saturation and color.

However, if the color design of adjacent buildings is to appear harmonious, it is advisable not to become too rich in contrast or to remain within a color family. Basically, the following applies to all color designs on the facade: For larger facade areas, it is good to cover them with subtle colors, small areas can be emphasized with strong colors. The combined plaster surfaces recede on facades where materiality is paramount, such as clinker or wood. That should be reflected in a rather calm color scheme. Another attractive option is to simply repeat the colors of the parts of the building in reverse. This is very interesting, especially for semi-detached houses. Terraced house facades can also be designed in this way in an intensely colored and individual way. They look so lively and yet coordinated with each other without a facade falling out of line.

Terraced houses in Haßloch: FarbDesignStudio developed three design options. Variant 3 is implemented.

Tips for the color design of individual terraced houses

The photo-realistic design software SPECTRUM_express from Caparol offers good help with the design for a harmonious color scheme in the context of the neighboring facades. At www.spectrum-express.de, design ideas can be visualized in advance using your own photos and sample images. To do this, simply upload a photo of the terraced house to be designed into SPECTRUM_express. If you want, you can have the individual facade components, such as windows, doors, canopies, roof undersides, etc. prepared for you by the service of the ColorDesignStudio for 39 euros. After two to three working days, the photo edited by professionals will be made available. Now it can be designed photo-realistically in all color combinations according to individual wishes. In the design software SPECTRUM_express the design subject "Facade A1 Concept" is also stored with 63 practical color concepts.
