Style in stone

Holcim Australia is providing beautiful and lasting architectural design options for Australian homes with Geostone™.

Stone has been used by humans as a canvas for expression for thousands of years and is the basis for many of the world’s most powerful building monuments, such as the Pyramids of Giza. Its hardwearing and lasting qualities have meant it has been constantly reimagined and revisited in architecture by some of history’s most celebrated architects and designers.

Much of this architectural work continues to stand out today as a testament to the timeless appeal of stone. And now, Holcim Australia is allowing Australian homeowners the ability to capture the artistic qualities of this building old-timer with its new and improved decorative concrete product range, Geostone™.

Under a new brand name, Geostone provides a clever fusion of reinforced concrete with the uniqueness of Australian stone, offering not only versatile functionality but a stunning appearance. Specially developed for the Australian market, Geostone is extracted from the earth and carefully selected for its colour, size and shape to maintain its natural variation. The product lends itself perfectly to creating a contemporary yet classic home, and can be finished in different ways to perform a range of roles. These include:

  • exposed – for durable driveways, pathways and landscaping
  • polished – for a highly glossy, smooth surface in indoor living areas
  • honed – for comfort and durability in outdoor entertaining areas such as patios, verandas and pool surrounds.

The Geostone range is now widely available across most of Australia. For more information, phone 13 11 88 or browse our website.
