A big congratulations to Architecture Workshop and all involved for winning the Gold Award 2015 in the Westpac New Homes over $2 million build category, at the Registered Master Builders House of the Year Awards in Wellington. Architecture Workshop was also a winner at the Local NZIA Architectural awards in Wellington.
The exterior render system chosen for this project was StoArmat render over concrete block and Eterpan Ventclad. This was finished in Stolit K 1.5 finishing render and coated in Maxicryl and Sto Color X-black for a complete weathertight solution.
StoArmat render systems provide the perfect reinforcing render to ensure maximum system reliability for concrete block and fibre cement sheet construction.
StoArmat is an organic, cement-free and breathable, high-impact render, with a crack resistance six times higher than that of standard cement-based plasters, which ensures maximum system reliability for building facades. Furthermore, Sto have a comprehensive library of Sto details to assist designers and comprehensive specifications to ensure the scope of work is identified.
