While being one of the world’s oldest and most enduring building materials, there are very still few design features more alluring than natural stone. For centuries local limestone has been utilised in all forms of architecture in the Tuscan region, its strength, beauty and versatility making it ideal for both external and internal applications. It is these features which see Tuscan limestone shipped halfway across the world to be used in residential projects across Australia.

Tuscan limestone makes a stylish natural stone cladding, transforming the outside or inside of any home. It offers a range of subtle pastel and natural colours that seamlessly blend with today’s minimalist trend while still imbuing warmth, perfectly complementing the Australian climate and lifestyle.

In addition to the stunning aesthetics, it is the strength, versatility, and consistency of limestone that appeals most strongly to designers, landscapers and builders alike.

Limestone is formed by the deposition of small fragments of marine organisms such as coral and shells, as well as other contaminant materials such as sand and clay. After the deposition the stone will undergo de-watering, compaction and cementation, forming the limestone rock.

 Through this process limestone gains its strong and dense properties, making it a suitable choice for both internal and external cladding applications.

As a quarried stone, limestone is able to be cut to a very consistent size and shape, which not only looks better, but provides an evenness which makes it quicker and easier to lay.

To truly appreciate and experience the benefits of limestone, ensuring natural stone specialists are engaged in the project is vital.
