As color is a universal language, at Keim we never tire of talking about it, or looking for great ways to reinforce the use of color in architecture. A simple way to introduce unexpected color is with color blocking. Placing contrasting or “startling” colors in different blocks, shapes and lines can give any building a brighter appeal, and deliver a more energetic image.

The key to color blocking is to boldly use vivid or unexpected colors, often paired with neutrals or even black for maximum drama.

Using blocks of color can add visual interest and create depth on an otherwise flat or ordinary looking façade. It can highlight facets of a building, such as the entrance, or it can be used to create a “pixilated” canvas with unlimited creative potential.

What better way to highlight using concrete in construction than with bold and unexpected pops of color? Bold colors are finding their way onto buildings across the globe and color blocking is just one way to help expand your use of dynamic color.

Is this too much color for building façades? We don’t think so, and here are examples color blocking enhancing the architecture and communicating with its surroundings and those living there. There is a mural painted over a pixilated background conjuring up mental images of blue skies.
