I heard enough people saying, to nuke all commies and that they represent a cruelty against mankind. You are a rare species in Poland to care enough and even live in commieblocks. BTW most people in Germany hate the white color on buildings because they are used to associate it with some stuff of modernist architecture and argue that it might stand for some kind of arbitrariness. You know, Germans love everything what is nonuniform and in some special way unique. But I like the white color on commies, looks very elegant and subtle.

Well living in commieblock is not something special in Poland but few people care where they live, I mean things like architecture etc. for most it's enough if the building is clean and only practical things like location matters.

Really? But for some reason you use a lot of white and other "serious" colors in your renovations. In Poland new housing is mostly white and grey + sometimes some stone (at least in bigger cities) but when it comes to renovations we have a lot of ugly "rainbows", white is usually replaced with yellow, original painting scheme ignored etc.

This one looks really fine.

Ok, let's start a documentation on a progress of a renovation of a dormitory here in Dresden. In the future I will try to post some pictures of ongoing renovation of this block.

What kind of company is doing such a expensive renovation in Slovakia or does this whole block belong to a housing authority?

PS: I couldn't spot this girl in front of the block as it was promised. When will she arrive?

Energy-saving commieblock renovation in Utrecht

This owner-occupied block in Utrecht (72 apartments belonging to an equal number of owners) has undergone a renovation consisting of a new energy-saving heating installation, double glass windows, insulation of exterior walls and heat pumps, all this with subsidies from national, provincial and municipal government and according to the last news received the use of gas for heating was cut by ca. 50% in comparison with before the renovation.

Some renovations are nice but it depends on combinations of colours...Here in Košice,Slovakia it is starting to be a problem. If you look on housing development on hillside like Sídlisko Dargovských hrdinov you have mixed feelings...It looks like complex of boxy circuses. Some buildings are well painted,some looks bad and most of them are in original condition...

Poland is doing an excellent job. I always follow this thread:
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...06117&page=393

Some great (and not-so-great) examples can be found there.

Yup, I've got that thread bookmarked and I check it regularly. I completely forgot about the tag!
