Sustenance you can bank on - Logan Brown Restaurant

Logan Brown RestaurantOnce a BNZ bank branch and today an historically listed building featuring classical architecture, column entrance and impressive double doors, the image of Logan Brown restaurant in Cuba Street, Wellington is cemented in one's mind well before one steps over the threshold.

Selecting a palette of hues sympathetic to the building's status, passers-by are treated to an exterior palette of a Resene Gravel (dark grey) base, Resene Nomad (soft brown) walls, Resene Acropolis (muddy neutral) trims and feature Resene Red Berry (bright red) doors.

The cementitious exterior was spot primed with Resene Sureseal pigmented sealer to bind together areas of exposed porous substrate before topcoating in two coats of Resene Sonyx 101 semi-gloss acrylic. Trims and joinery have been finished in a topcoat system of Resene Enamacryl gloss waterbased enamel for a subtle gloss contrast to the main wall areas. Steel window joinery was first spot primed in Resene Armourzinc 110 before a full priming coat of Resene Quick Dry Acrylic Primer Undercoat and two topcoats of Resene Enamacryl were added. The wooden door required a full priming coat of Resene Quick Dry Acrylic Primer Undercoat and with two topcoats of Resene Enamacryl, the job was complete, just in time for the next round of diners to make their grand entrance.
