Story of Ehinger Hof, builded in 1877 by architect Max Buck.
By creating a new building in the Lindenstrasse 72 in Ehingen in 1877 Max Buck changes up to a more strict architecture. The building was primal planned and created to the lawyer Paul Rapp and it takes up the calm basic design of Bucks parents house, but different proportions giving the new house an different effect.
The rectangular building standing with its longer eaves side in direction of the street. Two elevated avantcorps with coupled windows giving an easy rythm to view. The building is not wide in its depth, there are only three axis with windows and the eaves do not cross the gabel ends. Over the bossage we find the ground floor decorated with a rustica line. The horizontal main lines will be highlighted through simple level- and windowsills. The corners of the building are accentuated by lesenses and pilaster strips.
The windows in the attic floor are plain designed wearing a plain cornice roof in a classic created line. Basicly and in line with the lenses there were some sculputures planed, but finally this to conspicous decoration has to yield to some grisailleornaments with grotesque figures, festons and mascaron graphics which one are decorating the building on the face to the streetside. Oculiwindows are taken up the line given by the windoxaxis of
the veneer. Such kind a facade painting was, in opposite to bavaria tradition, not useable in the swabian area, but it seemed to be more favourable than sculptural decoration.
At least the building catches one´s eye by unusual arched windows and grisaillefriezes.
