Cultured Stone was applied to the main blade of the building and extended into the interior entrance foyer, bringing texture and character to the space.

Cultured Stone by Boral has added a final flourish to the facade of a luxury home in the high-end Adelaide suburb of Glenelg South.

The stunning 400-square-metre home was designed by renowned designer Clint Girardi of Girardi Design and built by boutique custom builder Camporeale Klemm Built (CK Built). Located just a short walk to the popular Jetty Road and down the road from the beach, the home beautifully combines contemporary and classic design.

To meet the brief, designer Carmel Siciliano used a combination of modern, natural materials for the facade and lots of glass to let the light in. Cultured Stone was applied to the main blade of the building and extended into the interior entrance foyer.

“Cultured Stone has the classic stone look we were seeking and perfectly complemented the exterior's white render and timber. It was used alongside concrete-look flooring in the interior, bringing an element of the outdoors into the home, which the client loved.

“Veneers are a beautiful and versatile option for residential and commercial construction and finishing, and Cultured Stone is no exception. It is a light, cost-effective choice for a creating modern, coastal-inspired stone look that will never go out of style.

“The clients considered using real sandstone, however the maintenance requirements were too taxing for the couple, who work full time and have young children. Cultured Stone has helped them achieve the look they wanted, without the hassle of ongoing up-keep," said Carmel.

Cultured Stone by Boral is distributed in Australia by PGH Bricks & Pavers.

“Our experience working with PGH Bricks & Pavers was terrific. The product range is strong, striking and versatile, and the service is exceptional. The team has been so accommodating with providing samples for our clients and responding to our questions quickly and professionally," said Carmel.
