RONA Baywest, Victoria – Before and After

RONA Baywest, Victoria – Before and After

The initial design request  by the client was to provide an Exterior Paint Palette for a spread out and color-dated building housing three distinct businesses; one a high profile retail corporation with specific brand requirements.  The focus was to develop a color palette integrating the different areas of the building and better fit it into the renewed urban environment of the Vic West Gorge waterway.   In recent years the Gorge waterway had seen the addition of Master Planned developments from the “Railyards” to the globally innovative LEED Platinum designed residential/commercial community “Dockside” Green.

In the first meeting with the owners, it became clear the original request for paint color only was going to have to expand.  The building really needed a change from the worn looking cedar strips on the top face to a newer contemporary surface in order for  the project to look its best.  Plus there had been an on going concern about clearly defining the direction of the main entrance for the building supply store from the Bay Street point of entry.  Taking with me the concerns I collected, I developed the proposed conceptual drawing below to better direct customers to the Retail main entrance plus the exterior paint concept.  

During the re-surfacing construction and painting of the new colors, the changes often brought many positive  remarks from people in the neighbourhood.
