Times two - Auckland home built of recycled materials
In a classic case of waste not, want not, this Auckland residence combines a range of recycled materials to create a new home.
Beams and sarking in the lounge were sourced from unwanted materials from the Northern Roller Mills Building, the hardwood came from the dairy lockers of the ferry building and a collection of brick and wood substrates were recycled from a mix of locations. This home has a unique history imbued in its soul, with a story wrapped around each example of reuse.
Striking Kauri ceilings are protected and enhanced with Resene Aquaclear stain, a waterborne urethane that allows the beauty of the wood to show through. The warm glow of the timber is complemented by paperfaced plasterboard walls finished in a range of Karen Walker colours tinted into Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen. Hues of Resene Sandspit Brown (neutral beige), Resene Jetsam Brown (lightened brown), Resene Donkey Brown (mid brown), Resene Kina Brown (dark brown), Resene Sanguine Brown (soft earth red), Resene Sorrell Brown (red tan) and Resene Grain Brown (warm brown) applied by brush and roller provide interest and complexity as they wax and wane throughout various rooms of the house.
