Office daze - National Bank head office

The subtle combination of colour hues separates the interior commercial fitout of the National Bank Head Office in Victoria Street, Wellington from its neighbours.

National Bank Head Office in Victoria Street, Wellington

All walls were coated with Resene Zylone Sheen for an attractive low sheen finish with the added benefit of lower odour, minimising the disruption to workers and staff. A carefully selected palette of varying grey hues of Resene Armadillo (dark grey), Resene Westar (light grey), Resene Cove Grey (grey blue) and Resene Chicago (mid grey) adorn the broadwall areas.

Feature areas were accented through the use of the light textured Resene Sandtex tinted to Resene Chicago and Resene Lochinvar (blue green). These lightly textured areas add depth and interest to the colour scheme. Resene Aquaclear acrylic polyurethane was used on all skirtings and wood panels on ceilings and furniture to enhance and protect the natural timber substrate.
