Reclaimed Victorian bricks make stunning contemporary surfaces!
05 April 2023
We provide solid surface solutions which help Architects, Landscape Architects and specifiers meet their circular economy and Net Zero targets!
Here is an example of a project where reclaimed London Stock bricks are being upcycled into new solid surfaces. Manufactured here in the UK, these terrazzo surfaces will be installed in a refurbished church and new office for an architect’s practice.
Once the bricks are retrieved, they are crushed and the brick aggregate is then cast in a low carbon cement binder. T
he results are always interesting, often surprising and generally stunning!
When we blend the brick with a second aggregate (such as slate in this example) the aesthetics adopt a lively character. Some pieces of slate lie flat, whilst others are embedded as slithers which adds movement to the new surface.
Talk to us about your circular economy needs – you’ll be surprised at what we can upcycle into new terrazzo surfaces!
