Challenge

To create a ‘masonry’ effect that would give this 3-storey sheltered housing development a distinctive visual that sat comfortably alongside the suburban street scene and adjacent Golf greens.

Solution

Following extensive research and the production of on-site sample panels, the architects chose a special blend of Ivanhoe Cream and Bradgate Light Buff handmade bricks, with blend consistency assured by taking bricks from a maximum of three pallets. The matching mortar was pointed flush with the irregular surface of the handmade bricks, and then pressed back to a slightly ‘struck’ profile to ensure rainfall dispersal.  Enhanced quality control and site supervision ensured a very high quality finish throughout.

Architect: Smith Findlay Architects
