House façades – modern, elegant or striking?

The design of the façade of your new home is important to determining whether the house looks chic, refined, modern, warm or friendly. Besides the choice of materials, the colours used are also crucial.

From natural rendering, timber or brick façade through to a stone façade available in various colours, with SchwörerHaus nearly anything is possible. Combinations of colours and materials can be individually planned and realised, wholly in line with the customer's wishes.

Rendered façade

Organic rendering

The organic rendering we use is highly resilient, very dirt resistant and easy to clean. In addition, it offers particularly effective protection against wet and cold.

Besides these more practical properties, it also comes in a wide range of colours, providing home-builders with virtually unlimited options in façade design.

 

 

4 timber façades - 4 effects

Timber can be deployed in a wide variety of ways in façade design: as cladding for the whole house or for smaller elements, such as between the window to provide an architectural highlight.

In order to achieve the best possible and a long-lasting colour for exterior timber elements, the wood is painted several times in its freshly-sawn state. The allows the paint to penetrate deep into the wood, providing lasting protection against wet, dirt and fading.

The paints used have been assessed and recommended by the inspection agency TÜV Rheinland and meet particularly stringent TOXPROOF criteria which document that no hazards exist as a result of air contaminants or pollutants.

Lamella cladding

Lamella cladding consists of horizontally arranged, diamond-shaped cladding boards. These are likewise coated with paint in their freshly-sawn state and are therefore weather-resistant. The individual boards are arranged with gaps between them with black facing sheets behind.

Horizontally offset slat cladding

A special façade configuration makes this novel wood façade design a reality. The slats comprise horizontally arranged rhomboid-shaped casing boards, which were also stained with wood dye when freshly sawn to provide them with special weather protection. Particularly eye-catching here is that the façade elements are arranged in a varying horizontal manner. Moreover, the slats have varying widths. The individual boards are fitted with a small separation between each other.

Floor-ceiling cladding

With floor-ceiling cladding, freshly-sawn cladding boards are arranged in a vertical overlapping pattern. The casing boards are coated with a wood paint, offering particular weather protection.

Weatherboards

With weatherboards, also known as clapboards, horizontal freshly-sawn boards are coated with a wood paint, offering exceptional weather protection. Window surrounds are either attached vertically or horizontally.

Brick façade

Bricks are appealing not only because of their striking visual appearance, they are also virtually maintenance free and long-lasting. What is more, they are particularly dirt resistant. They can cover either the whole house or be combined with timber or rendering. Whatever the choice, the form an overall impressive image.

Fibre cement panels

For decades now, fibre cement has been a tried-and-tested, frequently-used material made of fibre-reinforced cement paste. Burning the cement makes it long lasting, weather resistant and maintenance free. The various colours and sizes of the panels can be easily combined to create architectural styles.

Photovoltaic façade

The integrated photovoltaic façade system is an innovative façade design that marries modern architecture with energy efficiency. The façade not only protects the house, it also provides an additional function.

The façade system is attached using an arrangement of non-visible brackets, providing a harmonious overall appearance for the house – a sustainable, aesthetically discerning architectural solution.
