Gone fishing - Fish Bazarre complex

The Fish Bazarre ComplexA new development on Wakefield Quay in Nelson is home to the Fish Bazarre Complex, a quirky café laced with a vivacious personality. Harnessing the warmth of yellow and orange and combining them with the restfulness of blue, the café interior is a perfect fit with the menu of ocean harvest.

An eclectic mix of Resene Zylone SpaceCote, Zylone Sheen and Zylone 20 were used for an overall low sheen finish inside and out the new cafe. Resene Aquaclear Semi-Gloss clear polyurethane was applied to protect the plywood substrate and enhance the timber grain to complement the warm paint hues. Trim, joinery and wet areas have been treated to a Resene Enamacryl gloss waterbased enamel finish for maximum block resistance and cleanability.

The palette of Resene Splash (bright clean yellow), Chalky (oxide yellow), Tussock (strong oxide yellow), Tia Maria (red orange) and Azure (cornflower blue) combines beautifully with hints of oceanic overtones to provide coolness on hot Nelson days and touches of sunshine inspired hues to give a sense of warmth during the chillier winter months.

The Fish Bazarre Complex

Whether good old fish and fries or gourmet shellfish are your style, the Fish Bazarre has landed a menu and style that will satisfy all seafood fancies.
