From a devastated Canterbury earthquake hit property, a Cashmere family has built a new contemporary home at the base of the Port Hills.

With a loft style/ commercial conversion aesthetic in mind, Muros Rustic Loft Brick takes centre stage in the open living space, creating an inviting family space with rustic walls, warmth, solidity and character.

Featured in Abode Magazine, this rebuild is certainly a stunning showcase of clever design, innovative products and creative applications. The vision and commitment to bring old warehouse texture (exposed brick and concrete) into the kitchen build and integrate with modern design/ furnishings in a light and contemporary fashion has been more than achieved by the owners.

Having set their sights on a modern home with substance and texture, Muros Wall Panels offered an exciting solution. Projecting the authentic imperfections and appearance of aged brick, the floor-to-ceiling paneling in the open plan living/ kitchen instantly achieves a three-dimensional (3d) result that brings the walls to life.

Panel features for Muros Loft Brick include cracks, uneven brick shapes and alignment, and brick and mortar texture that is both smooth and rough throughout the panel design. The bricks are imperfect with nicks, chips, and elements of natural wear found in established brick walls. The subtle eight colour variations within the panel also add to the aged effect.

The end result is a stunning tactile dimension to a space – so despite being new….it feels like a home! We hope the Munro family has many years of happy memories there to come.
