Well read - Pt Chevalier library

Pt Chevalier library Once library buildings used to be dull and boring. These days, they tend to be modern and motivating. The Pt Chevalier library on Great North Road, needed a fresh new colour scheme to help it stand out on the street, while still being in keeping with other council projects. The way the building is designed and sited, you could easily be forgiven in thinking this is a small exterior paint job, but it measures a sizable 400 square metres.

The concrete plaster walls have been finished in Resene Sonyx 101 by roller and brush. From ground level to a three metre height on all walls is Resene Uracryl GraffitiShield. The roof is long run, sprayed with Resene Summit Roof.

The palette is simple but striking. Walls of Resene Stack (serious grey) are a soft backdrop to the accent of Resene Bullseye (cherry red).
