Project Manager Tony Way worked closely with Andrew Humphries of AKH Builders for property developers PMB Landco Ltd to create the designer dwelling. The concept and design of Riverside Apartments came from Brian Elliott at Design Group’s Elliot Architects. The contemporary architecture and exterior combination of smooth plaster, warm timber, and neat stonework only hint at the supreme standard of living on display inside. Steve Harley Plasterers completed the Rockcote Systems Rendering Solutions on this project. This included application of Rockcote’s LiteRock solid render, masonry render, and cement sheet ﬁnishing solutions. The complete Rockcote Solutions on this project included integral colour

Rockcote’s exterior plaster ﬁnishes are designed to withstand New Zealand’s harsh climate, whilst maintaining consistent durability and performance. Rockcote Systems specialises in complete render solutions to exterior and interior environments. Registered Rockcote plasterers can only apply Rockcote and a written workmanship warranty and performance guarantee comes with all applications. The stunning, dark timber features offset the smooth, white plaster ﬁnish. To complete the timber additions, Reilly Joinery added the stunning cedar entrance door and matching gate.
