Each floor level represents traditional colours used in graphics on the packaging of a bundle of fireworks.
Located at 92 Albert Street, Auckland – levels 16 through 20 – Media Design School occupies a total of 4000sqm connected not only by lifts but two sweeping internal spiral stair cases.
The school provides leading design courses and produces outstanding professionals for the creative industries. As design professionals themselves, Media Design School was a unique client to work with. Receptive to bold application of an inspired Resene colour palette and willing to push boundaries with a dynamic use of floor coverings to the reception wall.
At Spaceworks we pride ourselves on delivering a clients brand promise in 3D. The design of a space is informed not only by that brand's unique 2D communications, but by the culture of the people that use it; design development begins with research of the company we are building the space for.
Spaceworks' single unifying idea for the Resene colour scheme was an inspirational idea born out of Media Design Schools brand essence 'ignite creativity'. The concept – each floor level represents traditional colours used in graphics on the packaging of a bundle of fireworks. The core of the building is painted Resene Nero referencing the gunpowder element at the centre of a firework. A play on the idea that the students are fireworks and Media Design School is the platform from which they are launched.
