From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — Katikati
My clients, having lived many years vegetable farming on the outskirts of Katikati, wanted to build a substantial building, an asset to Katikati township for many years to come.
I chose a modern, smart yet timeless colour scheme of Resene neutrals accented by metal and wood – to portray interest and strength fitting within the existing character of the community. The building was built using concrete block, some walls plaster finished and other walls clad in Linea. Due to the three finishes I chose three Resene neutral shades accented with white and bright.
Concrete block walls are finished in hues from the Resene The Range Whites & Neutrals – Resene Perfect Taupe (greyed beige) and Resene Double Perfect Taupe on plaster finished walls. Linea is painted in a contrasting neutral, Resene Oilskin (a complex brown) and these colours are joined with strips in colours of copper and white. The copper colour is then continued with precious copper joinery, and to complete the look, wooden decks coated in Resene Kwila Timber Stain.
Materials were chosen for appearance and low maintenance. This predominant building is a landmark entry point welcoming you into the ‘old becoming new’ streets of Katikati.
