In this paper we address the problem of removing unwanted image content in a single orthographic façade image. We exploit the regular structure present in building façades and introduce a diffusion process that is guided by the symmetry prevalent in the image. It removes larger unwanted image objects such as traffic lights, street signs, or cables as well as smaller noise, such as reflections in the windows. The output is meant as source for textures in\ urban reconstruction projects.
