Stoneface, Architectural Stone


Stone has been used in architecture throughout history for its natural warmth, timeless distinction and tectonic qualities. The ventilated stone facade is an alternative to traditional stone masonry ensuring safety, versatility and performance. Developed in the 1960's, it is one of the most successful construction methods in the world.


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.

Stone Processing

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.

Stone Testing

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.

Feature Project

The Bishop Suter Art Gallery is the oldest

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.
