Clinker and Joints

In Hanover, an ensemble of four residential buildings has been built according to plans drawn up by the architectural office Smaq. 
A special feature of the buildings are the elaborately designed brick facades. The clinker used here was developed, produced and ­processed by clinker manufacturer Deppe, and the architects combined the red brick with red joints. The seemingly homogeneous facade is structured into cassette-like fields, which in turn incorporate decorative ornamental masonry with rhythmically-staggered ­clinkers. The bricks jutting out of the masonry create wandering shadow plays. The ornamental ­areas were implemented using shaped bricks with shadow gaps. To create areas with ­recessed masonry, the architects used a 90-mm-deep brick from Deppe.
