When designing the Annex our Yellowfox team knew we wanted to create an innovative working environment, a bustling hub of activity full of colour and pattern.
A mixture of vibrant paints (including a write-on strip), wallpaper textures, mirrored tiles, varia panels, bright carpet tiles, curtain chain and white accents created the overall dynamic design space.
This commercial setting is home to boutique businesses, all within the design/building industry, making it the perfect site for fun new products.
The Resene The Range 2011/12 offered an impressive array of colours to choose from. After narrowing the selection down we came up with a palette of Resene Spotlight, Resene Koru, Resene Rock N Roll and Resene Pukeko. These colours were balanced by a crisp Resene Eighth Thorndon Cream. Resene Write-On Wall Paint was also utilised by running Resene Spotlight strips topcoated in Resene Write-on Wall Paint along two walls that eight offices occupy, creating whiteboards for each office.
Wallpaper was also an important element that made areas come alive. Resene Walltrends 25139 enhanced the long entry corridor and was accented by a Resene Rock N Roll door at the end. The padded looking Skin SK73403 ran the length of the waiting area to create a comfortable cosy environment and the Neo N943870 added a touch of character and fun to a once dreary toilet area.
We also wanted a cohesive relationship between the walls and the floor. By using Ontera Modular Carpets we were able to customise the tiles to create a unique barcode-like runway strip, dividing off each office space and off-setting the vibrant wall colours. Other finishes that completed the look were a range of wallpapers and Resene Blast Grey 2 from the Resene Metallics and Special Effects range.
