Long life - Knox Presbyterian Church
When you are working with a building that has stood for over a century, you can’t help but feel the history wash over you. Knox Presbyterian, a large timber church in the Gothic style, was designed by R.W. de Maskill, and built in 1899. It gained its name in honour of John Knox and was a substantial undertaking at the time with an estimated cost of two thousand pounds.
With so many years of service, a complete strip of all paint was undertaken and prepaint repairs made to the roof and elevations before the entire exterior was repainted. Over 1000kg of lead based paint was removed, which required bagging and containment as part of the stripping process before being appropriately disposed of.
Against a wall colour of Resene Lumbersider low sheen tinted Resene White, careful touches of neutral colour highlight the key architectural features. Resene Grey Friars (flannel grey) anchors the base and is also repeated on the door pediments. Trims and doors are picked out in Resene Enamacryl gloss in Resene Quarter Taupe Grey (sleek taupe) and the roof is finished in Resene Summit Roof in Resene Half Masala (greyed brown).
