Bookworm - Redcliffs School Library

Captivating and bold low sheen hues have breathed new life into the Redcliffs School Library in Main Road, Christchurch.

Redcliffs School Library

Pure bold colours such as Resene Citrus (lime green), Resene Governor Bay (bright blue) and Resene Deep Koamaru (dark blue purple) were used on the walls behind the books to captivate the youth audience, then each colour was used as a feature within the mural to provide a natural bridge between the two to give a harmonious inspiring reading environment.

The full interior has been painted in Resene Zylone 20 for a luxurious low sheen finish that minimises the glary reflectiveness that can make reading fine print difficult.

The daring use of colour has banished the 'boring library' stigma forever, winning Signmark a bronze medal in the NZ Sign and Display Awards.
