Gone are the days of boring, brown brick that’s crying out to be covered in render. In 2016 it’s all about making an architectural statement with eye-popping, slimline bricks and the new linear range from PGH Bricks & Pavers doesn’t disappoint.
Dating back to the Frank Lloyd Wright architectural style of the early 1900s, the use of slimline bricks to play with pattern and proportion is re-emerging as a major architectural trend across Europe and Australia.
“Linear bricks can be used to create smooth lines, sharper corners and texture for a stand out home,” said Michelle Gissel, general manager of marketing and strategy at PGH Bricks & Pavers.
From aqua to mustard yellow, there’s a colour to help every design savvy renovator amplify street appeal. Stuart Vokes, director of a leading residential architecture firm, Vokes and Peters, envisions exciting new designs with the collection.
“The linear profile is a lovely shift in proportion from the typical 230mm brick. I see these being used to create unique feature walls and incorporated with standard-size bricks for textured exteriors. They would also work well as an internal or external paver,” he said.
Dry pressed linear bricks offer a matt look and are available in 10 colours, including new balmerino blend, popular mowbray blue and gledswood blend bricks.
The linear glazed brick collection features 25 colours, including colourful vibrant bricks, a strong and dark palette of academy bricks, cutting edge urban metal bricks, and the soft and cool tones of the seascape bricks.
