Volksbank Rheine

The sober architecture of this five-storey administrative building calls for a plain façade design. The light beige hue of the ceramic panels used is friendly but not imposing. Only a low pedestal is accented in dark grey. The wide window apertures create a horizontal emphasis, but this is balanced by the imposing columns. The large-format elements are laid in halfbond that enlivens the relatively narrow, column-like surfaces. The use of two different firing temperatures enabled the realization of colour nuances that lend the rather austere façade an extremely natural play of colour.
