Landmark Building and Developments chose Cultured Stone® by PGH to create a standout facade on a new Hamptons-style home in Raby Bay, Queensland. Cultured Stone was the natural choice for the builder to create a striking design feature that would perfectly complement the home’s weatherboard-look exterior.

According to Nat Bylund, director of Landmark Building and Developments, the owners wanted to stay true to the original Hamptons aesthetic of the house. However, they also sought a unique design feature to enhance the street appeal of their home. Cultured Stone by PGH was selected to create a textured stone wall, the product offering a high-quality, easy-to-install and beautifully finished alternative to expensive natural stone.

The home’s facade features 40 square metres of Aspen Dressed Fieldstone, covering about a third of the surface. This installation was completed in less than a week by the project’s bricklayer. Being a lightweight, non-structural cladding material, Cultured Stone can be easily installed at any stage of the build, even after completion, which helps to streamline project timelines.

Cultured Stone is manufactured with painstaking care and artistry; it is cast in natural stone moulds and meticulously hand-coloured to achieve the look and feel of real stone. 

Nat Bylund said the client was extremely happy with the finished project. He added that the natural characteristics, available variations, and the cost of the product make Cultured Stone a very appealing choice.

Cultured Stone by is distributed by PGH Bricks & Pavers.
