Bespoke Interior

When it came to selecting the interior finish for the walls and ceiling for Harmon Horton Lusk corporate law offices the Architects at Warren & Mahoney Auckland office selected the Rockcote MarbleStone polished lime finish. The finish is the highest polish achievable with our range of natural plasters.

Concision partnership

Resene Construction Systems has worked closely with the Concision team for the past two years in developing a cavity based external facade system that can be constructed off-site, then transported, assembled and finished onsite. The facade system development included multiple specially developed designs, techniques and processes specific to Concision.

Key benefits to the off site construction process were – no weather delays, clean accessible work areas, and accuracy of system installation.

Our INTEGRA aac lightweight concrete system was selected as minimal componentry is required with the added benefits of acoustic and impact resistant advantages over other systems. The INTEGRA system combines Resene Construction Systems patented EdgeSeal flashings, alongside the exclusive ROCKCOTE reinforced plaster system, and Resene paint and colour technology that provides surety of durability and performance from our climatic extremes for the life of the building.

Significant quality controls are in place throughout the entire process to ensure best practice is adhered to across all disciplines and stages. The Concision process is highly monitored and robust to ensure optimal panelised production outputs.​

Mangawhai project – INTEGRA lightweight concrete floooring

The first INTEGRA lightweight concrete floor in Mangawhai, supplied and installed by Brian Kaye – BK Textures.

This System is the only hydrophobic (doesn’t like water) aac concrete flooring on the New Zealand market. Perfect choice for early winter in Mangawhai. The surface water after installation was simply broomed off ready for the framing to be installed.

The client, Mr Smith of Smith Construction knew what he wanted for his build and that he has and will benefit from the all weather installation, no squeaking, along with thermal & acoustic performance.



Curvaceous Interior


Kiwi Property has been part of the New Zealand landscape since 1993. They develop best-in-class shopping centres and landmark office towers. But much more than that, they create wonderful spaces that New Zealanders can simply enjoy.
Complementing what they do for their clients they have completed their new level 7 office space in Auckland’s VERO tower.

The striking and memorable entry is curved as a soft welcoming flow to the main office spaces.

The curved feature walls were finished with Rockcote Velevtina with slight distressing which provides a highly polished surface juxtaposed with matte distressing. The specialist finish is very tactile with an almost surreal depth to it.
Completed by Kevin Cotter and the PDS – Auckland Team. It shows the ROCKCOTE Artisan plasterers work at its finest.


Recently opened in Albany, Auckland is the new EVERLAST store. The Architect – Matt Godward, Godward Design Space provided a digital render of his vision for the look and feel of this new development. The finished result reflects a very accurate response to his design. The feature wall in the business utlised our hand applied, pre-coloured ROCKCOTE Velvetina that was burnished for that concrete look after which Kevin Cotter, owner of PDS applied our protective wax to give the Velvetina finish additional depth.

Underscoring everything is a commitment to the organic, the bespoke, and the hand made. In pursuing the demands of an intense hospitality operation, we made lights from twisted old vine branches, plastered walls with ROCKCOTE clay plaster and straw, laid local stone against the chimney, dyed fabrics and painted tiles by hand. In these principles – the organic, the bespoke, the hand-made – we’re just trying to get spatial experience to stand in the same place as that the beer, the wine and the food should take you.

The Crossing – Christchurch’s new Metro Shopping precinct

The Crossing is the latest Christchurch Metro shopping precinct. ‘The Crossing’ welcomes the finest international and local brands to Christchurch’s CBD.

The project features our premium INTEGRA lightweight concrete facade and finishing system. The system was applied over our 20mm dryzone cavity system, including our full EdgeSeal flashing technology. One of the more challenging issues faced was the inclusion of multiple angles to reflect and compliment other architectural detailing to the project.
