Feature brick walls make a comeback in award-winning apartment.

Brick is back. The humble internal ‘feature brick wall’ has been revived with the stunning, black, glazed Nobel brick from PGH Bricks & Pavers that takes centre stage in the kitchen of an award-winning Teneriffe Warehouse Apartment. The outstanding renovation was awarded the 2013 Australian Interior Design Award for ‘Best of State – Residential Design QLD’.

Nobel bricks from the PGH Academy collection feature in the open plan kitchen as a fully glazed brick splashback and dividing wall. The bricks were selected by interior designers, Wrightson Stewart, because of Nobel’s contemporary attributes. The sharp arrises, high gloss finish, smooth texture and deep solid colour perfectly contrasted with the gritty architectural elements like the solid oak flooring, exposed timber and steel trusses, high raked ceilings and the original internal red brick perimeter walls.

The client brief was to ‘create the ultimate bachelor pad’ and the use of Nobel bricks in black helps to define the ‘masculine’ space. “The application of the glazed bricks in a kitchen splashback and dividing wall really challenges convention,” said Jenny Page, PGH Architectural Segment Manager. “This project has without doubt revived interest in feature brick walls as a relevant and significant interior design element.”

PGH Bricks & Pavers have worked with leading colourists and design houses to create a comprehensive range of glazed, metallic, dry pressed and sandstock face bricks in an almost limitless range of colours and textures to suit any interior style or theme.
