Winning a National Resene Heritage Colour Award, the judges comments:


In a modern interpretation of heritage, it’s so nice to see something different; a twist with the use of metallics to make reference to the period and style of the great Chicago skyscrapers that changed the skyline all over the world from the late 1890s. The line and form is strengthened with the use of colour highlighting key detailing. Simplicity is reinforced by layered colour. It’s such an admirable effort to transform an ordinary building to stand out from its mediocre surroundings.
