Kirkham Rise, Camden
Camden’s newest and most prestigious address
A new bushland estate in the pristine setting of Camden. Once again Stonehedge was engaged by Mbark, which has a highly regarded track record of creating award winning quality developments such as The Arbour – Berry, to help redefine the traditional entry statement commonly associated with housing estates.
Working closely with James Robinson (Mbark) we sourced material from 4 different quarries in 3 states that we knew would work well together to bring about a truly unique entry into Kirkham Rise that sits harmoniously with its surroundings. The stone had to be worked vigourously to produce a dry look (ie. no mortar showing) and selection of individual pieces of stone was critical to create a balance that worked well with the hand crafted bronze pillars and framing.
A work in progress
Putting the finishing touches on a project means the difference between a good job and a great job. Attention to detail is paramount

The entrance way as it sits today. Each piece of stone sitting in perfect harmony with its neighbour and surrounded by a picture frame of bronze
Kirkham Rise entrance - RHS
With good planning and organisation we were able to create a balance between traditional and contemporary stonework
Having worked with Stonehedge in the past, they were the obvious choice when it came to providing a unique entrance statement for our new development near Camden – Kirkham Rise. From design through to completion Brett played a key role in realising our vision for the entrance, providing us with the ideas, his knowledge of stone is impeccable. The result – a standout feature entrance into this new estate.
