Resene Paints and the Ashburton Art Gallery and Heritage CentreThe new Art Gallery and Heritage Centre in West Street, Ashburton brings together the Ashburton Art Gallery, the Ashburton Museum, the Ashburton Family History Group and an extensive archive collection.

Combining these cultural organisations into one, means this centre is a central hub for the community. With facilities from temperature controlled spaces, conservation facilities and dedicated education space through to café and retail space, this centre has everything needed to share the art, history and culture with the community young and old.

Protecting these treasures is an exterior shell of tilt slab and titan board. A blade in Resene Resitex with Resene Lumbersider topcoated in Resene Root Beer (copper brown) intersects the neutrally finished main building, cleverly highlighting the main entrance through the colour contrast and anchoring the sides. Other exterior tilt slab is finished in Resene Sandtex Mediterranean effect in Resene White Pointer (stark off-white), applied in a crow’s foot criss-cross technique, which adds texture and dimension to the finish. This is complemented by Titan® board in Resene Lumbersider waterborne low sheen paint, also in the colour Resene White Pointer.

The clever use of application technique and colour placement plays the colours perfectly.
