The Dominion Building in Victoria Street, Wellington is the home of the Wellington branch of Alliance Française. Alliance Française are French Cultural Centres offering language courses and resources for members and the public in French culture. The Wellington Alliance is New Zealand's largest with 1500 members and associated teaching and resource facilities brought together in the heritage listed Dominion Building.
The interior fitout provides for both core activities and a large gathering orientation space for casual visitors and frequent social events. The design concept was to present a contemporary flexible interior with enduring looks and strength - a bold and stylish home for all members and those interested in all things French.
Resene Zylone SpaceCote and Zylone Sheen were used to give a low sheen interior finish to all broadwall plasterboard and cement render areas, complemented by a Resene Aquaclear acrylic urethane finish on the plywood ceilings to beautify and protect the timber, and a Resene Mica Bond finish on the steel window trim and joinery. Resene Deep Koamaru (deep blue purple) was used to accent the reception and key display areas contrasting starkly with the restful Resene Quarter Pearl Lusta (light cream) walls and ceilings.
