Sample making

posted in: BLOG | 0

Sample making for our clients designs plays a major role in meeting the needs for the desired look of the project. From coordinating and matching colours to achieving a particular kind of finish in texture look and touch.

Although Samples play the first step in providing an example of the look for the end result they can never be a real testimony to the full finish in its lustre, beauty and feel. Just like every wall every sample is unique and hand crafted to suite the needs of many different clientele.

We produce samples for all our Venetian Plaster designed finishes also known as polished plaster, Marmorino, stucco and Lime renders, So if you have a particular finish in mind please let our team design the look you need for your project today.

Lime Render could be the alternative for polished concrete

posted in: BLOG, Uncategorized | 0

I went back to take some photos of a previous job we done beginning of February for Sarah Evans from Hassell Architect.

She wanted to achieved a concrete look but without to many imperfections and been practical and easy to maintain  for a kitchen splash back.

We  use a two coats system lime render  with different aggregate such as quartz silica and finest marble dust for last coat, this a old technic of application I learn back in France, the result is quite amazing if you look to replicate concrete slab or a polished concrete wall, this is the finish you want.

for the easy maintenance we seal the wall with one of our water based low-VOC Polyhurthane sealer

Lime plaster and render are limit less  in regard of creativity

Stucco Lamundo at Knight Frank offices in Brisbane is a genius polished plaster

For the last three weeks the team of Idea Creations has been working with Buildcorp to achieve Geyer Architects vision.

This  high end office features all the raw, natural products, from timber panels to concrete floor and green suspended garden contrasting with our white polished paster “Stucco Lamundo”

The result looks fantastic and very sharp , once again the traditional techniques of lime plastering are proving its capability to compliment sharp contemporary design,

We are very devoted to provide always the highest and most exclusive finishes to our client

Good work team 🙂

 

Official Fact sheets on Lime renders From Australian TAFE

posted in: BLOG, Uncategorized | 0

Lime strengths

So i have recently found a study that was done by a solid plaster teacher at TAFE on lime renders, describing all of its history in Australia, as well as the benefits the product has. The history especially in the Sydney region really provides solid evidence of how long these products have been around and how long they will last! There is also another document from an American company for you to view as well, stating many of the same facts.

 

The american company who wrote the second document is http://www.vero-rialto.com/lime_history.htm

The company who commissioned the other study is http://glassford.com.au/main/https://

 

There are strawbale homes being built all over Australia now, and they render the entire interior and exterior and bathrooms in Lime. It is a proven building material, and their documentation written by a TAFE professor helped them to prove that it is in fact the best out there. Make sure you read this, and see why lime beats all the rest!
