Textured wall panels from Muros were selected at the external entrance to the Four Points by Sheraton Auckland and its Queen’s Head Bar & Eatery. The Muros Roughcast Concrete design was specified by Studio D&A to bring the modern gastropub design to life efficiently and economically.
Capturing an industrial design, the panels are modern for the new upmarket hotel yet still inviting to guests. Muros extended from the restaurant, bar front, bulkhead and stairwell to the external column façade at the entrance. The panel relief comprises timber form lines, patches, air-pockets and stony aggregate seams, all typical of poured concrete. The large hand-crafted panels replicate the look and feel of natural materials with a three-dimensional finish.
The lightweight, thin and durable panels were cut and installed by Muros and then custom painted. Independently verified to resist water, fire, UV and erosion made Muros ideal for high-use areas. Fitted at the Radisson and Rydges Hotel, Muros were also involved in the boutique Citizen Apartments in Newton, requiring over 200 White Loft Brick panels to the balconies, beams and soffits across three storeys (shown above). Operating in New Zealand and the Australia-Pacific market for over a decade; Muros can satisfy any hotel, hospitality or apartment space. From foyers, entrances and receptions to conference rooms and individual rooms.
