Stone Sourcing & Supply
Stoneface has researched stone as a medium for use within expected design concepts. We have run independent tests of mechanical behaviour to ensure and evaluate the performance expectations of stone and the fixings we use over a building's lifetime.
Stoneface chooses to use modern processing methods that reveal the hidden characteristics of the natural stone. The beautiful aesthetic results we achieve are built on a thorough understanding of both the theory and technique of constructing in stone.
Architects appreciate the design possibilities and the functional safety of our stone facades. Builders appreciate the simplicity and robustness of the system, and clients love the distinctive beauty of natural, handpicked and crafted stone.
The Bishop Suter Art Gallery is the oldest
public art gallery in New Zealand.
Stone cladding wraps the entrance on the café side of the building. These stones were installed using the Stoneclip system, with the largest stone measuring an incredible 60cm x 1 metre.
