The new Hardie™ Architectural Collection takes modern home facades to new levels of design possibilities with a curated selection of distinctive architectural profiles, contemporary textures, and striking cladding combinations.

This collection combines the proven durability and uncompromising performance of Hardie’s suite of fibre cement products with the aesthetic potential of stunning profiles and textures, allowing designers, builders and homeowners to create impressive and modern home exteriors from the ground up with confidence.

The Hardie Architectural Collection consists of popular products such as Axon™ Cladding, Stria™ Cladding, Matrix™ Cladding, and Linea™ Weatherboard, along with James Hardie’s most recent innovations, Hardie™ Fine Texture Cladding, Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding, and the new Hardie™ Brushed Concrete Cladding.

The latest addition to the Hardie Architectural Collection, Hardie™ Brushed Concrete Cladding features an embedded texture that evokes the look and feel of softly-brushed concrete, delivering a finish that’s both stylishly impactful, and dynamic to the touch.

All products complement each other seamlessly to open up new avenues for mix-and-match customisation and personalisation in facade design through imaginative cladding combinations.

How Hardie Architectural Collection benefits your project

Design versatility

This curated cladding collection features distinctive textures and profiles that can be painted in any colour and combined to create bespoke exterior finishes in new homes and renovations. 

Reduced installation complexity

Hardie™ Architectural Collection comes with the assurance of ‘single trade installation’ – the lightweight fibre cement cladding panels can be installed by a carpenter and painted on the same day (once any additional sealants have cured), resulting in time and labour savings for builders.

Trusted durability

Hardie™ Architectural Collection products are made from Hardie™ fibre cement, thereby, delivering all the enduring attributes that the material is known for, including durability, resistance to moisture and termites, non-combustibility, and low maintenance. 

"From a builder's perspective, the Hardie™ Architectural Collection is a game-changer. It's not just about the stunning aesthetics; it's about the practicality and time-saving benefits it offers," said Matthew Menichelli, director of award-winning master builder, Elevate Building Group.

"The integrated nature of the collection simplifies the construction process needing just one trade. With a range of versatile cladding options that seamlessly complement each other, it's like having a well-coordinated toolkit at your disposal. This means fewer complications, faster installations, and ultimately, more satisfied homeowners."
