Intercontinental Hotel – Delos Limestone Cladding

In 2014 Island Stone completed the supply and installation of a unique limestone cladding for the lobby fireplace of the Intercontinental Hotel in Wellington.

The customer was seeking something in a light colour and with a natural-face finish, and in particular something that would do justice to what is very much the focal point of this part of the Hotel.  They also wanted a total supply and install solution, and approached Island Stone because of our expertise and experience in sourcing and installing lightweight natural stone claddings.

While some of our Sandstone Mint claddings came close, they didn’t quite ‘hit the nail on the head’.  In our search for alternatives, we found this Split-Face Delos Limestone Cladding which comes in 85mm depth strips at variable lengths (up to 1m in length).  Having had good success with large format variable length claddings previously, we were excited by the look of this product and confident that we could install it to the high level of specification required.

The finished product completely met the brief, and is something that both the customer and Island Stone are thrilled with.  We have supplied this cladding for other projects since, and as availability allows we now have it as one of Variable Length Cladding options.
