Sydney Conservatorium of Music by DJRD Architects with TKD Architects using Murobond's Murowash Paint.

Peter Tasker, director of Australian paint manufacturer Murobond, will share with us his insights into the varied interior and architectural projects that have specified Murobond paints. These projects include many landmark Australian heritage sites, the contemporary Australian Islamic Centre in Melbourne by architects Glen Murcutt and Hakan Elevli and many subtly sophisticated interior and exterior colour treatments of contemporary residential and commercial buildings. In addition to design professionals, the talk will be of value to anyone with an interest in Australian heritage sites and contemporary Australian architecture.

Peter Tasker and his brother Geoff founded Murobond paints in 1988 after travelling extensively in Europe and being inspired by the soft earthy natural paints of Provence and Tuscany. Since its inception Murobond has built on three pillars of aesthetics, technology and the environment to create beautiful interior and exterior paints that offer rich, individual finishes and textures. Murobond’s strong environmental focus minimises the environmental impact of their paints through careful product selection, product usage and waste management. Creative collaborations with contemporary stylists have culminated in the wonderful paint collections of Mr Jason Grant and The Society Inc. by Sibella Court.

Meet at 6.30 pm for a glass of wine and light snacks (included) followed by the talk at 7 pm. The Albion Centre is a short bus ride or about a ten-minute walk from Central Station and is well served by bus routes in Crown, Albion and nearby streets. Street parking only. Pre-booking essential, please book by Monday February 17th.

All welcome. Please help us to spread word of this event by printing out or sharing this pdf poster.

Many thanks to our new NSW Division Committee member Kerry O'Donnell for arranging this event!
