Versatile stone panelling that creates an enduring visual feature is available from Original Stone

Intelligent application


Traditional stonework is often used to enhance contemporary architecture. The combination of stone's heavy texture and rich colours provides a visual contrast to monochromatic plaster work.

In this home the owners fitted Original Stone's Rox Veneer stone cladding system to emphasise the architects's vision for an impressive entrance way.

"Rox goes up easily and is cost effective," says manager David Salenius.

Rox stone walling is available as a veneer panel that is applied like a tile, or a facade where construction is similar to brick. Both are modular, eliminating the time and expense of stone-by-stone wall construction.

The veneer, available in ten different stone types, appears like dry stone walling. The facade series has the appeal of raked out schist and is available in eight different stones. Both are finished with matching cappings, natural ends, interlocking corners and column block modules.


Original Stone supplies solid stone products to architects, retailers, tradespeople and developers throughout New Zealand. This home, together with other buildings featuring the company's products, can be viewed on its website.
