Although the building features a variety of materials, the Sandstone-coloured concrete masonry predominates to the street, complementing the cedar panelling.

The upper level is finished in composite fibre-cement panels, cedar and corrugated steel. The split face of the GB Split Face Masonry is formed by moulding a double block and literally splitting it in half.

The resulting face texture is unique to each unit, mimicking the rough-hewn appearance of natural stone. “Split face blocks are a great way to add texture to building facade,” says Buck Grgic, Topic Builders inhouse architect. “They are also maintenance free and cost effective.”
