The 2014 Think Brick Awards was held recently in Melbourne with several talented architects submitting projects featuring the stylish use of grey and coloured masonry blocks from Austral Masonry . An Austral Masonry project took home the Kevin Borland Commercial and Residential Masonry award.

Clayfield House, the winning masonry project was elegantly designed by the talented Richards & Spence Architects from Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, and constructed with GB Honed blocks in Porcelain covering the interior of the home.

The Think Brick Awards program is organised and managed by key industry bodies including Think Brick Australia, the Roof Tile Association of Australian, and the Concrete Masonry Association of Australia. The concrete masonry award category was added in 2013 due to popular demand, and expanded to include residential projects this year to celebrate excellent concrete masonry design in any form around Australia.

Sister company Austral Bricks was also well represented at the Think Brick Awards, with projects winning in both the commercial and residential bricks categories.

The annual Think Brick Awards celebrate and promote the use of heavyweight construction materials in the Australian market. Awards are given across five categories covering bricks, roof tiles, and concrete masonry.
