Collaboration - Martin Hughes Architecture Interiors
Martin Hughes Architecture Interiors is an Architecture and Interior Design company dedicated to producing excellent design solutions that increase and enhance their client's business. Working closely with Resene, the two have collaborated on a number of high profile projects such as the apartment complex Parks on Domain in Auckland, the ASB Bank in Queenstown, the fashion retailer Saga and Barfoot and Thompson in The Chancery in Auckland and the nationwide rebranding of Plumbing World.
From the divider wall dressed in Resene Sangria (raspberry red), the walls and ceilings in Resene Parchment (light beige) and the wall stripe in Resene Spring Rain (dusty green), the palette drips with inimitable style. Carefully accessorised with Resene Metallics in Resene Aluminium (silver) on joinery, Resene Stargate (blue silver) on light boxes and Resene Atlantis (soft metallic green) on signage, this interior emits the right vibe on which to showcase the latest fashion collections.
Seeking a more modern and sophisticated presence, purple tinted into Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic was selected as the main branding colour for all 40 stores. The original icon colours red, blue, green and orange were retained inside to highlight the different product departments. Resene metallics were used on detail to give a leading edge look throughout the stores accompanied by Resene Zylone Sheen low sheen tinted to the Plumbing World special colour palette.
All stores were visited as part of the specification process to ensure each was tailored to individual building needs.
In a bold leap of faith, Plumbing World have well and truly laid out the welcome mat to women.

ASB Bank Queenstown
In a first for the ASB Bank, a café finished in bright café colours influenced by the bank's existing hues was introduced. With a palette of ASB corporate colours in Resene Zylone Sheen complemented by Resene Metallics in Blast Yellow (black yellow metallic) and coffee quality to match, the new café is a popular addition to the bank's range of services.
A clever injection of fun into a corporate bank culture, the new ASB café is proving to be a popular coffee stop.
