Inspired by nature


We believe

We should live and work in tune with nature, in buildings built in accordance with her laws, emulating her designs, harnessing her natural energy flows and respecting her limits.

Buildings should celebrate life over sterility, restraint over extravagance, beauty over tawdriness.

Finishes should not poison the air with fumes nor the soul with artificiality.

In crafting spaces that delight when entered, embody serenity when occupied and create regret upon departure.

We believe that people thrive when living close to nature.


Rockcote’s innovative philosophy, called Reseek & Develop, is the defining quality of our culture.

It rests on five axioms:

Rockcote draws inspiration from the enduring creativity of the early artisans whose relationship with their materials was key to delivering stunning finishes. We support and nurture the skills of tradespeople who use our products by designing formulations that save time and money, delivering a beautiful job that continues to look good and perform well into the future.

Rockcote innovation seeks to understand and use natural design principles to reduce our impact, helping others to do the same. Our production plants were constructed with energy efficiency and waste minimisation in mind, and are self-sufficient in water. A growing number of our products are classed as non-toxic with very low VOC, like that of our EcoStyle Paints and Natural Materials.

Rockcote’s approach to product formulation is to use just enough advanced technology to ensure our products meet the demands of our punishing Australian climate and are compatible with modern construction materials and methods. By using the best quality raw materials we reduce the amount of harsh chemicals needed to deliver outstanding performance.

We believe that nobody wants poisons and toxins in their indoor or outdoor environments. Our pioneering work developing natural building materials for today’s buildings using clay, lime, hemp and straw is changing the landscape of Australian buildings. Architects, designers and home owners are seeking out natural building materials which are beautiful, contain no poisons and actually help clean the air.

A naturally beautiful building respects nature’s limits and design principles. Every element of the design and construction process is considered and integrated through conscious collaboration. Rockcote works with our partners to help bring these elements together and provide quality natural finishes that deliver remarkable lasting beauty.
