Rugby red - Sydney Swans headquartersResene Paints

On arrival at the Sydney Swans reception you are instantly struck with the famous ‘Swans’ Red’ in a hue of Resene Monza (clean primary red) framing the portrait painted by Jamie Cooper, complemented by a curved metallic wall of Resene Silver Aluminium (silver metallic) blending effortlessly into the space.

The reception is a mere hint of the colours nestled further within the walls of the home of the Sydney Swans at Moore Park, chosen to provide a modern and inspiring feel to the office and player facilities.

Moving through the building the ‘Swans’ Red’ Resene Monza has been used repeatedly but sparingly in common areas and stairwells to create cohesion and cleverly reinforce the branding and corporate identity to all clients and visitors.

Resene Joanna (versatile green based neutral) is the general wall and ceiling colour throughout the building providing a harmonising backdrop to the energising ‘Swans’ Red’.

In the physiotherapy and medical rooms the use of Resene Warrior (masculine deep dusk green) creates a relaxing and rejuvenating environment for the players.

The boardroom required a significant contrast and here Resene Ventura (sharp-edged golden green) adds a sense of nature and equilibrium to the space and overall colour scheme.

Interior areas were finished in Environmental Choice approved Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen waterborne enamel, Resene Zylone Sheen waterborne low sheen, Resene Zylone 20 waterborne flat and Resene Lusta-Glo semi-gloss enamel.

The completed look is vibrant, inspiring and impactful, reflecting the Sydney Swans onfield persona off-field.
