The client is a fine artist as well as an avid art collector, and therefore color and its location proved to be very important. The initial color palettes were based off of a few of his favorite artists.
The final color scheme was largely influenced by the idea of how an artist uses color as they are mixed on the palette, such as the mixing of two colors to create a third color. This technique produces an illusion of transparency, which was a large idea in the architectural design of the building.
The other method that was an integral part of our color scheme was the use of Gestalt’s Principles, which was used to play with the geometry of the building. In angular areas, one color changes, so slight that it may not even be noticeable.
Gestalt’s Principles: proximity; similarity of color, size, orientation, texture, type font, etc; symmetry, closure, parallelism, common region, common fate, and synchrony.
Project Role: Color Consulting. Work completed while employed with Payette.
