Fresh perspective – colour brings life and organisation to this office space

The rethink of an existing building for an accounting practice brings drama to the interiors and gives them life and colour – key surfaces are in Resene paint

The lively fit-out for the offices of Palmerston architecture, building, ceiling, floor, flooring, furniture, interior design, office, real estate, room, white
The lively fit-out for the offices of Palmerston North accountants PKF Rutherfords incorporates Resene Merino, a versatile off-white, on most walls. The boardroom is set-off by an accent wall in Resene Seeker, a light teal.

So how do you transform the public image of an accountancy practice from staid to dynamic? The company’s office fit-out is one obvious way and within that colour choices play a pivotal role, as the fresh-faced interiors for PKF Rutherfords reflect.

The largest change for the accountants was switching from individual offices in their existing premises to open-plan spaces in the reinvented building they were moving to. The smart paint choices that help define and enliven the new, open office were selected jointly by Chapple Architecture and PKF Rutherfords.

The majority of plasterboard walls are painted in Resene Merino. This off-white results in a clean but not clinical space and sets a base layer against which the colours of carpet, furniture and selected spaces inject a visual statement and organisation.

Feature walls of Resene Seeker – a light teal – in the boardroom area and Resene Alo Alo – a fluoro yellow – in the kitchen, help define these zones.
