Southern Stonemasons Canterbury worked with Wayne Murray Builders on this exceptional home. The residential project capitalised on the technical expertise and craftsmanship of our team to gain a premium finish. The end result was a beautiful blend of modern, clean lines and traditional natural-stone features, and the home won the House of the Year Gold Award.
The stone used is called Oxford Grey, a local basalt. The Oxford stone buttresses, which contrast with the cedar cladding, were constructed using a highly technical hand-chiselling technique, laid in a semi-dry style. Clean wooden lines contrast beautifully with the square stone laid in a random configuration. The beauty of the architectural home is the contrast in materials and lines.
