Storown secured an empty site in Woolston Christchurch and engaged the Design Team to develop plans for unit title individual ownership storage units of varying sizes.
The construction is tilt slab to achieve separations required. Due to the facility being very functional the buildings were given a feature square panel to the road frontage for presence and aesthetics. To add to the attractiveness and presence on the street front it was decided to brighten up the full industrial street by adding bright colours to the concrete work.
Each block was given a separate colour to help identify where a client’s garage is in the complex. Primary colours were chosen with additional accents to create panelled frontage effect.
Resene Lumbersider low sheen waterborne paint has been used, with a palette of Resene Lucky Dip and Resene Limelight on Block A, Resene Super Duper and Resene Wet N Wild on Block B, Resene Turbo with Resene Galliano on Block C, and Resene Pursuit with Resene Smashing on Block D.
As a field of concrete garages, with rivers of dark asphalt paving running through, the addition of colour has drastically changed the whole feeling and value of the development. It is now vibrant, alive and a pleasure to visit.
