Lustalux ​‘paint ​by ​numbers’ ​in ​the Boat ​Shed ​facelift

Window film and signage experts, Lustalux, have unveiled their completed works on the Boat Shed – a regeneration project based in Salford Quays.

The waterfront building has undergone a dramatic refurbishment both internally and externally, now featuring an impressive bold black and yellow design.

The Boat Shed’s project property developers, Urban Splash, said, “we are staying ahead of the market and going beyond expectations, creating incredible spaces to work within amazing buildings.”

The Lancashire-based Lustalux team were hired to bring the architect’s vision to life, through hand-painted wall signage, Contra-Vision window film and totem signage dotted around the premises.

Richard Lancaster, director at Lustalux, said, “it’s always nice to be asked to undertake a project that gives us the opportunity to showcase the diversity of our skills at Lustalux.”

“we worked with an urban commercial artist and mural painter to create the outlines of giant numbers of the sides of the buildings, then filled the outlines in using exterior grade paint. You could say that we were literally painting by numbers”

Designed by R2 Architecture, their director Richard Eastwood praised the Lustalux team as: “proactive and a pleasure to work with”, going on to say “they did a fantastic job in helping our ideas fruition and we wouldn’t hesitate to work with Richard and his team on future projects.”

Previously consisting of a tired 1990s style red brick facade, the new flexible working spaces at the Boat Shed have already proved themselves popular; securing several new tenants, including Lupo, Environmental Services Design, Consumer Reclaim, Care UK and the Training Room.
