The new DECO Innovation Centre designed by award-winning architecture firm ClarkeHopkinsClarke has been described as a display space that pushes the boundaries of showroom design and highlights the versatility of DECO Australia’s broad range of products.

DECO Australia, a leading manufacturer of aluminium building products and finishes, has opened their brand-new display centre – the DECO Innovation Centre in Minto, NSW. Designed as an informative, interactive and inspirational space for architects, builders and homeowners alike, the centre allows visitors to immerse themselves in creative designs that feature DECO’s wide range of Australian-made and fire-safe building products and finishes, including its renowned DecoWood timber-look finish.

“From the anodised chevron feature façade to the architectural shade sails and grand canopy entrance, we wanted to highlight that with some imaginative design, DECO’s innovative products and finishes are not just for everyday projects, but can be used to create architectural masterpieces,” lead architect and ClarkeHopkinsClarke partner, Jordan Curran explained.

Visitors to the display centre can experience DECO’s extensive product range in full scale and real-life applications. The outside terrace showcases DECO’s certified non-combustible DecoClad cladding profiles, the FZ bushfire-rated and slip-resistant DecoDeck decking and DecoSlat fencing and screening. Inside, the full-scale DecoBatten wall showcases the ingenious QuickClick two-piece batten system and its variety of batten sizes and shapes.

Visitors will also be able to see the unique DecoFloor timber-look aluminium floorboards, the ultimate kitchen splashback DecoSplash and the brand-new DecoCeiling panel system.

Also included in the showroom display are DECO’s beautiful Super Durable powdercoat finishes, including all 30 of the popular DecoWood woodgrains as well as the recently released concrete and rust-look finishes, making colour selection an enjoyable and creative journey for visitors.

DECO founder and director Ross Doonan said the Innovation Centre offers an enhanced customer buying experience like no other.

“The DECO Innovation Centre allows customers to see our products and finishes full size and in the context of a building. This allows them to visualise how our products will look on their project. Add to that, the interactive experience of being able to touch and feel our products and see the range of finishes available, they will be able to develop creative concepts they had never even dreamed of before.”

The DECO Innovation Centre will serve as an inspirational space for anyone designing, building or renovating their home or commercial property. DECO’s expert team is on hand to assist visitors with their projects and help them bring their dream designs to life.

Visitors can also choose from a wide selection of free samples at the showroom.

The DECO Innovation Centre is located in Minto, NSW, and is open Monday – Friday 8am-5pm and weekends by appointment.
