Artique Classic Designer Masonry
Zanzibar is the evocative name for a little piece of paradise on Queenslandâ€™s Sunshine Coast. The site backs onto the river so itâ€™s no surprise that the owners were anxious to exploit the water views and maximise their exposure to northern light.
Austral Masonry Artique designer masonry in Pewter is used in the spine walls that run along both storeys of the five-bedroom house which also features three-and-a-half bathrooms, gymnasium, study, media room, chefâ€™s kitchen, lap pool, and three car garage.
The masonry is located internally and externally to maximise thermal mass â€“ an essential component of an energy efficient design â€“ and to maintain a visual flow between the indoor and outdoor areas.
The Pewter colour provides a contrast to the striking polished concrete floors and white walls, while maintaining the designâ€™s â€˜industrialâ€™ aesthetic.
The smooth surface of Artique Classic masonry gives a soft glow to any project. Artique is also available in split face (Dynamic) or exposed aggregate (Elegance) finishes.
