Industrial Spec for Sheraton

Profiled in the latest edition of Hotel Magazine, Four Points by Sheraton has recently arrived in the heart of the Auckland CBD luxury hotel scene. With a growing presence in the hotel/apartment space and proven track record in the hospitality sector, Muros was the trusted partner to Dominion Constructors.

Decorative wall panels from Muros were selected for the external entrance as well as its Queen’s Head Bar & Eatery, in a concrete form-work finish. The Muros Roughcast Concrete design was specified by Studio D&A to bring the modern gastro-pub design to life efficiently and economically.

The concrete wall panels themselves comprise timber form lines, patches, air-pockets and stony aggregate seams, all typical of poured concrete. The large handmade panels replicate the look and feel of natural materials and authentic walls. With raised relief and subtle imperfections, the walls have a three-dimensional finish adding a stunning tactile dimension to the common areas, differentiating them from generic tiles.

The lightweight, thin and durable panels were quickly cut and installed by Muros and then painted in the specified colour. Being independently verified to resist water, fire, UV and erosion made Muros ideal for high-use areas. As well as numerous apartment renovations, Muros has been used in high profile hotel receptions at The Radisson and Rydges Hotel. Recently Muros was a significant contributor to the boutique Citizen Apartments (Auckland CBD). Over 200 Muros White Loft Brick wall panels were fitted to a height of four stories on external balconies, beams and soffits.

Operating in the New Zealand and Australia-Pacific market for over a decade, Muros offers over 100 design and colour options in stone, wood, brick, concrete and 3D designs. Muros can satisfy any hotel fit-out, hospitality or apartment space – from foyers, entrances, bathrooms and receptions to conference and individual rooms.
