Cool black - CoolColour™ technology

Wrapped in Shadowclad natural texture cladding finished in black Resene Waterborne Woodsman CoolColour™ technology, this Tasman home doesn't need to shy away from the summer sun.

Black Resene Waterborne Woodsman Cool Colour technology

Stretched out like a carefree sunbather, the Resene Waterborne Woodsman CoolColour™ paint system improves the heat reflectivity of the substrate and reduces heat buildup compared to standard stains.

Resene Black was chosen to emphasise the crisp angular forms of the building and to enhance the recessive nature of the house when viewed from a distance. The effect is immediately striking. The interior features a softened palette of Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen tinted to varying shades of Resene Parchment (light beige neutral), Resene Tana (stony grey) and Resene Napa (grey beige neutral), popular selections from The Range Whites & Neutrals.

Striking on the outside and a restful palette inside, the hues combine to welcome visitors to this family home and provide a comfortable backdrop for everyday family life.
