WIT Recreation Centre


The WIT Recreation Centre was driven by a need to provide the facilities required by the client at a budget cost, which led to the use of insulated panels to clad the building. This then dictated a basic clean functional aesthetic for the facility, which is reflected in the overall decor and colours.

The colours needed to comply with resource consent requirements externally coupled with a need to accommodate WIT’s corporate colours. These colours then had to relate to the internal colour scheme, which we wanted to be light and crisp, and compatible with proposed graphic displays.

The gym hall wall is finished in Resene Aquaclear satin clear urethane, with timber doors and frames in Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel.

Walls are finished in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen with ceilings in Resene Quarter Tea.
