To attract any recognition in the coveted Trends International Design Awards (TIDAs), a house has to be of exceptional merit. And so to actually be a TIDA Homes award-winner, the design has to be next level. By extension it makes good sense that any interior finishes are of the highest possible quality.

Gary Todd Architecture designed this 2018 TIDA Homes award-winner nestled in amongst stunning Queenstown scenery. The biophilic house is designed to connect with its setting through the senses. And while the holiday house is two-thirds clad in argon-filled triple glazing, the paint and finish selections were also integral to this.

“We specified Resene Alabaster from the Resene White and Neutrals range for the living area ceilings to connect with the full height kitchen and lounge joinery and help frame the views to the front and rear,” says the architect. “Resene Alabaster offered a light, neutral foil along with the flexibility to complement the wallpaper, tile, steel, concrete and wood finishes.

“In fact, we used this same Resene off-white in most rooms for similar reasons.”

The architect chose a custom Resene stain for the living area’s Macrocarpa board accents – both to enhance the grain and provide a contextual link with forest tree trunks behind the home.
