A variety of paints and finishes set off exteriors and interiors at new Palmerston North health centre

From its dramatic entry to art gallery-like atrium and dedicated interior spaces, the Aorangi Specialist Centre benefits from Resene paints and surfaces

Broadway Radiology's new landmark Palmerston North building is the result of a close collaboration between Pak Design and McIntosh Moorman Interior Design. A selection of Resene products played a part in the look of the stand-out facility. 

A highlight of the centre is the atrium which flows from the feature, leaf-shaped entrance. MMiD wanted to ensure the entry leaf shape was highlighted so Resene Bokara Grey was used on the surrounding ceiling areas and the wood was brought to life using a system of Resene Colorwood Walnut, Resene Colorwood Reducing Base and Resene Aquaclear satin.

Resene Black White was chosen for its natural background to accentuate the hues and textures MMiD wanted in the project.

To bring warmth to areas that might otherwise seem cold, Resene Cest La Vie, Resene Coconut Cream, Resene Emerge and Resene Secrets were chosen, while Resene Moxie was used in staff areas to bring in local rugby colours for fun and patriotism.

To add accents to the calligraphic style art in patient waiting areas, Resene Good Life and Resene Native were specified.
