With its wineries, art galleries, cafes and sandy beaches, Matakana has long been a favourite haunt for holidaymakers. Now the north Auckland township has another attraction to add to its list the new Matakana Cinema Complex, designed by Noel Lane Architects.

Not surprisingly, the complex echoes the laid-back, rustic charm of the small community, with its mix of old-style baches, rural buildings and modern beach houses. The cinema features a combination of exposed timber siding and painted weatherboards its alternating forms reminiscent of the surrounding architecture.

To enhance the link with the natural environment, the exterior is predominantly finished in Resene Lumbersider, in hues of Resene Linen, a green-edged neutral, Resene Raptor, a murky green, and Resene Cargo, a light olive.

The exterior features a mix of exposed timber cladding and weatherboards painted in Resene Lumbersider - an Environmental Choice approoved paint made form a tough acrylic resin that ensures maximum durability in all conditions.

The ice-cream shop, with its barrel-shaped roof, is finished in Resene Lumbersider in Resene Stark White from the Karen Walker Collection.

A sense of the dramatic is more evident in the bathrooms, which are finished in funky, bright colours, painted on a textured Resene Sandtex surface. In the women's bathroom, shown here, Resene Carpe Diem, a bright sunshine orange, is painted over Resene Sandtex. The ceiling features Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen in Resene Gravel.

Resene Sandtex is a tough, waterborne, textured spray finish, frequently used to beautify and protect concrete structures. At just 150 microns thick, it can be used to recreate the texture of natural sandstone, or to create lightly textured effects. It will also disguise surface imperfections.
