INEX>RENDERBOARD from UBIQ was used to create a long bar and
reception counter at a Japanese restaurant in Mermaid Beach, Queensland.
The owner of Etsu, a newly opened Japanese restaurant wanted the bar to
be the most dominant feature of the design. Taking up half the width of the
space, the long bar is the centrepiece of the restaurant, which is already
accentuated with stunning sensory decorative effects.
INEX>RENDERBOARD, a low carbon, high strength and lightweight cement
based textured board has been brilliantly used by builder Chris Humpries in the
application, delivering an industrial and hard-wearing appearance.
The long bar and reception counter is constructed
using INEX>RENDERBOARD 16 over a timber frame, giving a solid concrete feel
to the structure. Rockcote Marrakesh has been trowel applied by artisan plasterer
Michael Symington over the INEX>RENDERBOARD to achieve the authentic natural
polished patina of Moroccan plaster.
