Eager to exercise - WIT Recreation Centre

The WIT Recreation Centre was driven by a need to provide the facilities required by the client at a budget cost, which led to the use of insulated panels to clad the building. This then dictated a basic clean functional aesthetic for the facility, which is reflected in the overall décor and colours.

Resene and the WIT Recreation Centre

The colours needed to comply with resource consent requirements externally coupled with a need to accommodate WIT’s corporate colours. The gym hall wall was finished in Resene Aquaclear satin clear urethane, with timber doors and frames in Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel.

Walls are finished in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen with ceilings in Resene Quarter Tea (muted beige), connecting them into the light and crisp colour scheme throughout the rest of the interior.
