Slimine PGH Dry Pressed Linear bricks feature slender and elegant proportions.

PGH Bricks & Pavers has introduced slimline 290 mm Linear bricks to its popular Dry Pressed collection, providing architects with slender and elegant proportions to create distinct residential and commercial designs.

The Australian-made Dry Pressed Linear brick is a modular format, allowing for standard installation methods and joint returns to minimise brick cuts and any increased costs.

“This new range answers the calls from Australian architects for longer and thinner bricks that hark back to the style used by Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 1900s,” said Michelle Gissel, General Manager of Marketing and Strategy at PGH Bricks & Pavers. "Slimline bricks are emerging as a major trend and we’re proud to bring a quality, locally-produced offering to architects, builders and developers.”

A long-time user of PGH Bricks, Stuart Vokes of Vokes and Peters architects, envisions the use of Linear Dry Pressed for a range of applications.

“These bricks are a lovely shift in proportion from the typical 230 mm brick. I see them being used to create the large monolithic designs that are trending in Europe, as well as incorporated with 230 mm standard bricks using a Flemish or Common Bond for residential applications. They would also work well as an internal or external paver,” he said.

Used as a feature brick or to amplify street appeal in residential and multi-residential designs, Dry Pressed Linear bricks can make a unique architectural statement.

The bricks measure 290 x 90 x 50 mm and are available in nine colours, including Mowbray Blue and Gledswood Blend.

PGH Bricks' Dry Pressed Collection now includes three sizes – Linear, Splits (230 x 110 x 50 mm) and Standard (230 x 110 x 76 mm) bricks – to provide design flexibility.
