Description

With nearly 10,000 years of sustained use in human habitation, the humble brick continues to be prized for its wonderful properties. Not only is it an inexpensive, long lasting and low maintenance building material, but it also provides protection from fire and extreme climactic conditions despite being naturally sourced. Brick also has a certain aesthetic appeal arising from the warmth of its natural color palette and the possibilities of pattern and form that can transform any space. Explore the variety and versatility of construction through the incredible projects featured, each with detailed descriptions, beautiful images, site and floor plans, elevations and sections. While focusing on residential and interior architecture, this celebration of the brick is sure to inspire for years to come.
