Earlier this year Powdertech Corby launched its Landscape range - a collection of high performance architectural polyester powder coatings with shades and textures reflecting those found in our natural surroundings.
For the designers of the 'Justice Court' collection of retirement homes in Cromer, Norfolk, Landscape has offered a perfect solution for coating the aluminium guttering and eves system, and the fascia on the building. The design intention was that these aluminium elements should resemble the feature stone band running in contrast across the red brick of the building and become design statements in their own right.
"We tested a number of Landscape shades to find the closest match," said Richard Besant, sales director at Powdertech Corby.
" 'Sandstone' was a clear winner. Recent photographs of the building show how well this shade has worked - you could be forgiven for thinking that the architects have included guttering made of stone. We currently have over 40 shades and textures in the Landscape range, and more are being added."
