Shades of grey, beige and white dominate as house colour in the historical parts in the city of Bergen today. Bergen Byfargearkiv is aiming to to capture and document the colour palette of today's domestic architecture. (Before it may fade away).
The project will at this stage focus on the Fjellsiden residential area. North of Skansedammen: Skansen, Steinkjellere, Stølen, Eidemarken, Skuteviken, Ladegården, Indre Sandviken.
However, the Instagram account will have no limitations.
Bergen Byfargearkiv also investigates historical colour traditions in the same area and aims to present some new design visions/fantasies of a possible future urban colourscape.
