A recent survey by Think Brick confirmed the growing trend of brick usage amongst Aussies, citing 83% of people choosing it for new builds over any other material due to its flexibility and its ability to create unique features and desirable aesthetic values.
The home’s key feature is a three-story brick chimney that can be seen from streets away, while the entryway is comprised of one-of-a-kind slice brick facing. The interior mimic the exterior, with all walls, floors and the outdoor pool area also built from and spotlighting the truly versatile and design-minded material that blurs the boundaries between indoor and outdoor. Using the same style of bricks throughout the home, the couple were able to achieve cohesion and minimalism in design without compromising on quality or sturdiness.
“This is our family home where we are going to create some of our most special memories, so we wanted to make sure we were 100% happy with all of our choices. If you think outside the box, there’s some really cool design elements that you can create with such a simple and reliable material. It’s the best of both worlds for us,” Andrew finishes.
In every sense of the word, Andrew and Larissa have opened a new door together and are excited to see how this new chapter in their life will unfold in their forever home.
