Rippon Hall, Rippon Vineyard & Winery

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — Lake Wanaka

The natural palette with highlights of colour preserves the Hall’s true sensory recognition of its own site, and a rare depth in material clarity.

Rippon Hall is located at Rippon Vineyard & Winery, Lake Wanaka. Rising above the vineyard and looking out to the lake and mountains, Rippon Hall is a hosting venue for weddings and events, daily wine tastings and sales. The material palette of the Hall reflects the ‘terroir’ of Rippon.

Rippon Hall exterior

The walls and floors are crafted from stabilised rammed earth using soil from the site, hall trusses and lining have been milled from larch trees on the property. Other materials were chosen from either a recycled source – rimu flooring for the hall, or the material was carefully selected for its durability and life cycle costs.

Rippon Hall wooden interior

The building primary heating source is from an ETA solid wood boiler which heats the radiators. Fuel for the boiler is sourced from specially grown timber on site. The selection of colours was carefully considered as any ‘introduced’ colour needed to complement the already very ‘natural’ palette that was in place.

Modern wooden interiors

Colours were selected for their particular use and place in the building: fire doors – Resene Fire, cleaner’s cupboard – Resene Bismark, laundry door – Resene Designer White, handrails – Resene Dynamite and the ceiling of the wine tasting room – Resene House White. The unisex toilets are colour coded with tones of green, with one white cubicle – to promote cubicle individuality, which is often missing from commercial buildings.
