"The architecture of Berlin and Hamburg is not bad at all, but also mostly not very interesting," Eis told Business Insider. "After coloring the first buildings, I got a completely new look."

Using Photoshop, Eis strips each photo of all its color, takes the building out of its environment, and adds in a blue background.

"The blue gives both contrast to white areas of the building and the colored sections," Eis said. "Changing the real sky with a blue background is also a part of the isolation of the building from the environment. That reduces the content of the image to only the building itself."

Eis decides where to add color based on the structure of the building.

"[I add color] mostly on windows or balconies," Eis said. "I also look for details which are repeating in the structure."

If the building has a simple geometric look, he adds repetition of colors. On the other hand, if the building has a more random structure, he chooses a random order for the colors.
