A multi award winning CaseyBrown Architecture designed dwelling on the beachfront of the coastal town of Mollymook.
Stonehedge worked closely with Rob Brown and Neil Riles to create a dry stone façade on the outside of the house using methods similar to the heritage of the area. Stone was sourced further afield and hand selected, delivered to a small residential site (which had its many challenges for a team of stonemasons) and worked vigourously to produce the required finish. A truly unique style of build similar to the dry walls of Scotland complete with soldier like capping.
As a result, Stonehedge won the ASAA National Stonemasonry Residential and Premier Awards for 2011 as judged by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects
By the Sea
The stone façade showing off the array of colours in the stone and tight jointing with no mortar showing. Three sides of the house were wrapped in stone to give the impression of a house sitting on a dry stone wall.
The Upright Soldier
As with Scottish dry stone walls the capping combines tradition with contemporary design. Here the upright capping works well and adds another element of intrigue to passers by. Many hours were spent in the quarry sourcing the right material
Bluestone basalt was used extensively to create the feature courtyard complete with outdoor shower and floating timber lounge
Brett from Stonehedge stonemasonary completed our mollymook project beautifully taking exceptional care in the detailing and craft
We would be very happy to recommend him for projects
