"Skolegata 42 og 44" (5 of 5)
It is typical of stone buildings in the Jugendstil that the wall face is divided up into sections that are treated in different ways, in order to achieve a moulded effect by simple means. In the case of Skolegata 42, the outer walls have been polished smooth in the main part of the house. The ground-wall, corners and details around the windows have a rougher and more rustic polished surface, which is also a slightly darker colour than the main wall. The flat curve, here visible over the windows, is also a Jugendstil characteristic. However, Skolegata 42 lacks typical Jugendstil windows, with their combination of small and large panes.
