Te Wananga o Aotearoa has added a new dimension of architectural excellence to Factory Road, Te Awamutu. Clever combinations of paint systems and colours have perfectly complemented the building's structural design.
A Resene Lumbersider Sapling finish was specified on exterior exposed concrete and fibre cement soffits, with Resene Old Brick accentuating the external portal. Exterior steel frames were finished with Resene Super Gloss for added durability and a high gloss effect.
Resene Zylone Sheen was used extensively throughout the building interior for a low sheen, high fashion look. Timber walls and joinery were finished in Resene Qristal Poly-Satin (plywood) and Resene Qristal Polygloss (rimu) to retain the look of the natural timber and provide a protective barrier.
Inside, Resene Double Spanish White walls act as a neutral background to the striking accent colours of Resene Cinder, Resene Bay of Many and Resene Ronchi used on the gallery, doors, columns and feature walls. Texture, in the form of the lightly textured Resene Sandtex tinted to Resene Old Brick and Resene Valhalla, was chosen for its ability to add visual interest to both the gallery and free-standing columns.
With such a detailed palette of well-chosen colours, paint systems and texture, it is not surprising that this project received a Resene Colour Award in 2000.
