The use of vibrant red hues to colour up the Clark Street Overbridge in Auckland has won high praise from the judges at this year’s Resene Total Colour Awards.

A design by Architectus, the colourful overbridge received the top honour, the Master Nightingale Award, for the best overall colour use as well as the Colour Commercial Exterior Award. The judges commented: “Rhythmical in reds, the continuity in this project is delightful. It is almost like an art installation….It’s a bold palette of similar hues, yet the decision to choose this palette required utter confidence. The whole community can embrace it, it’s something that reaches out and is shared by many with far reaching appeal and identification.”

A total of 24 awards were presented in this year’s Resene Total Colour competition. Along with the main awards Colour Maestro Awards were given in each category. Scroll through the image gallery above to view the award winners, and see the full summary below:
