Showcase

Natural Awa Splitstone

Natural Awa Splitstone

This classic rough face profile has been the forefront of Hinuera houses for 60 years. It’s unique and distinct character and solid stone look and feel conjures up images of an English manor with rugged beauty and charm.

Cladding blocks are split with a guillotine during production. The splitstone cladding is laid with the split face outward, giving a rough appearance to the wall.

This grade of Awa stone is taken from deeper in the quarry. While it is clear of pumice, it features natural mineral veining and iron markings, showcasing the natural volcanic stone.

The natural coloured stone can be kiln fired to change the colour to a terracotta / rich brown colour.

The natural colour is grey to cream, and when kiln-fired at 700 degrees it becomes terracotta / rich golden brown.
