Site analysis – Facade Colour Mapping

Prior to developing facade colour recommendations that will be visually cohesive, it is important to conduct a site analysis of the property to determine fixed facade colours and variable facade colours. This step involves identifying all the colours of all construction materials that will remain fixed and not changed, and to identify the areas that will be subject to new facade colour options.

This property at Cook Road, Centennial Park, is a late 1970s/early 1980s block of townhouses. The construction materials featured red brick, grey guttering plus painted concrete and timber details, as illustrated.

In developing facade colour options, these fixed colours play a key role in determining whether the proposed facade colour options will appear visually cohesive. Once the site analysis is conducted, facade colour options can be developed according to the key aims of the project.
