When there is a project that has clear nature inspired design themes, we get a little excited here at Inzide. Experience has taught us that when nature is the basis of design a stunning outcome is inevitable. So it is no surprise that when Wanganui's public library was in need of an update and the design direction was based on one of the most recognisable NZ native bird species, there was going to be fantastic use of colour in the floorplate, Inzide's specialty .
“In Whanganui’s public library, we created a broad swathe of colour that moved and flowed across the building, based on the plumage of the Kereru, Wood Pigeon. We used the carpet, a sometimes utilitarian feature, and part of the existing budget, to create a unique work of art in the space, using colours across four Inzide ranges, complemented with Resene ; Atoll, Gondwana, Tweet and Jelly Bean on feature walls, and coloured skylight film. Kids love jumping from tile to tile, exploring the nooks and crannies!” - Elinor Harvey McDouall, Drawingroom Design & Architecture
