Marrakesh from Rockcote is a traditional lime plaster that allows the artisan to create a unique work of art as a decorative or functional finish. Marrakesh is the ideal product to deliver a polished concrete look for the interior or exterior of contemporary homes and commercial properties.
Marrakesh delivers a seamless finish with smooth curves flowing into one another evoking a sense of ease and continuity. A seamless finish is particularly elegant in a bathroom where it can be sculpted to smooth, rounded edges in contrast to the sharp, angular corners evident with plasterboard and paint, or tiles.
As a decorative finish for ornamental and aesthetic purposes, Marrakesh can bring a softness and warmth to feature walls, columns and fireplace surrounds. A range of creative looks is achievable – from a textured, rustic feel to a lustrous, polished finish.
With similar characteristics to marble, Marrakesh is ideal for:
- Bench tops
- Indoor or outdoor kitchens
- Barbecue area
- Bars and restaurants
Functional finishes are used when the coating needs to be hard wearing such as in bathrooms, for shower walls and on bench tops and splashbacks. Highly skilled artisans with experience using Marrakesh for functional finishes are able to achieve a traditional Tadelakt or water resistant finish through a careful application and finishing process.
Marrakesh is part of Rockcote’s Natural Materials range of completely natural finishes that have been developed with just enough modern technology to perform exceptionally on contemporary buildings.
