Wallpainting for the SK-Stiftung Kultur, Cologne 2005

The SK Stiftung Kultur, the biggest cultural foundation in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, has moved into new spaces in Cologne. For the first time in its history the foundation now owns a representative function hall for 200 visitors. This hall is very significant for the presentation of the foundation to the general public. It is located in the 2nd basement and is accessible through a spacious staircase and elevators.

The design task for the mural, developed by interior architect BeateWild and the building owner, is to facilitate the experience of the unique stair core and guide the movement of the visitor down to the function hall.

My idea was to emphasize the character of the core tower by means of a luminous signal colour and to clarify the passage to the function hall by a mural painting.

As a base colour I chose orange, an unequivocal signal colour. The mural’s base appears soft and homogeneous through use of matt paint. The wall painting consists of multiple ovals. The oval as a directional shape can take up movements and intensify them. The varying arrangement of the ovals ranges from a loose arrangement to a dense network. This variation lends the mural its dynamic character. The colour for the ovals is a strong Magenta. It contrasts with the base colour, and is at the same time similar enough in tone to produce an impression of overall uniformity and evenness. In addition the Magenta material is shiny and pasty so as to give the texture a slight plasticity and a tactile quality.

The signal colour attracts the attention of the visitors, pulling them towards the basement and function hall. The tower as a monolithic shape becomes recognizable. It clearly differentiates itself from the surrounding walls as an independent architectural body.

The wall drawing is an image of the activity in the stairwell. The different functions of the varying levels affect their frequency of use: few people on the ground floor, some in the first basement library and larger gatherings in the second basement. The mural’s pattern intensifies accordingly: while still loose on the ground floor level it condenses into a tight network in the second basement where the function hall is located. Every level receives its own identity. A unique sense of orientation is created.

The interplay between the matt base colour and the glossy oval drawings echoes the movement of the visitors: with every change of location the incidence of light on the shining, reflective ovals changes and so does the perception of the mural drawing. From the cloakroom, the framing effect of the door opening, suggesting an almost baroque spatial sequence, draws the visitor back towards the stair core. The recognition value of the oval pattern again creates a unique sense of spatial orientation.
