Simple, colourful or crazy: depending the techniques you will use, you can give radically different characters to your house, have it discreet or make people look at it!
We have tested this tutorial for you with some of our favourite buildings, look:
Checkerboard pattern on the Cell brick house by Tekuto architects // we used cut out black rectangles pasted on white paper + see our hut version in the bonus !
Pink waterproof membrane of Villa Hermina by HSH Architekti (Cernín – Czech Republic) // we used watercolour paint in chewing-gum colour
Enamelled terracotta tubes for the Brandhorst Museum by Sauerbruch & Hutton (Munich-Germany) // we used colour pencils
Random metal membrane around Manny building by Tetrarc (Nantes – France) // We paste cut out paper ribbons
Minimalist windows for the House in a plum grove by Kazuyo Sejima (Tokyo – Japan) // we used a very fine pen
Triangular windows on Cité du design by LIN (Saint-Etienne – France) // we used a protractor, a ruler and ink
