Choosing the right cladding for a building project is one of the most important decisions specifier's can make, and considerations range from insulation and waterproofing to practical design and aesthetics.
For centuries, tiles have been successfully used as exterior cladding material because of their diversity in look and design, as well as their durable characteristics. Tiles are also, by default, a fire-resistant alternative with most material being manufactured at a heat of over 1000 degrees celsius.
An excellent example of practicality meeting exemplary design can be seen in this Cameron Ireland home located in Ponsonby. Raw Mix 25 x 150mm tiles from the Design Industry collection feature in several areas both inside and outside the home.
Inspired by urban design and contemporary architectural trends, Design Industry Raw Mix represents the chromatic and structural interpretation of raw cement and flaking plasters. This is played on by the large tile sizes that enhance graphic traits and allow for an extensive, continuous surface.
