Wielandhaus – Blue that is also green, does that work?
Yes, it does. The new Wielandhaus façade in Aarau is as blue as it is green – depending on the light and the viewing angle. In the Color Lab at Monopol Colors our customer mixed pigments, pastes and powders himself. Our color designers and technicians assisted him for as long as was needed to achieve the color he desired. But you know what? We prefer to let our customer speak. The words of Christian Rettenbacher:
“The spectral color chosen for the new façade shows that reality can change, depending on the viewing angle. The color reflects the surroundings, picks them up and integrates the building into its surroundings. The color combines nature with urbanity, history with the contemporary, tradition with the zeitgeist of modernity. It reflects the constancy of change and takes into account the idea of the “Floating Stone” by Willi Lüscher, the architect at the time.”
