The new Austral Bricks Design Centre at Horsley Park offers a revolutionary, online virtual selection tool that allows the buyer or homeowner to visualise colour selections for building design materials.

'My Virtual Home', the Virtual Selection Centre is designed for all external materials including bricks, roof tiles, windows, gutters, facia, garage, front doors and paved driveways.

According to Natalie Frendo, Austral Bricks NSW Marketing Manager, the virtual selection tool can even change the time of the day to give a realistic impression of how the buyer’s dream home will look in full sun or shade conditions.

The tool offers four camera positions that can be changed to look at the various angles of the house including the rear facade. My Virtual Home helps the homeowner to colour co-ordinate various masonry building products at a single location.

Once the homeowner completes the selection of external colours with My Virtual Home, the result can be emailed or printed out to present to the builder’s colour consultants.

My Virtual Home employs 3D design technology and offers homeowners an opportunity to choose their external colours after virtual visualisation, taking the guesswork out of selecting various building materials.

One can preview Austral Bricks’ most popular and enduring brick ranges as well as the very latest releases matched with roof tiles from Bristile Roofing for their new home in addition to any home renovation or landscaping project. Even the colour of the garage door can be matched to the overall colour scheme.

"Austral Bricks have teamed up with leading builders to bring home designs that can be opened and previewed directly in My Virtual Home. This is truly the 21st century way to view your new or renovated home in every aspect, in detail and from any angle, all in stunning 3D.

"Designing your new home will be an exciting experience as you discover the multitude of design ideas at your disposal," Natalie added.
