    Case Study: Brick screen provides identity and protection at Rowlock row house project

    PGH Bricks & Pavers

    Bricks from PGH Bricks & Pavers were extensively used in the Rowlock townhouse project in Nundah, Queensland.

    Designed by bureau^proberts and built by Craft Building Company, the Rowlock development at 24 Attewell Street consists of four townhouses placed behind an existing dwelling. The row houses draw heavily on the pre-war California Bungalow style of the existing house with finishes including rendered walls painted in off-white or cream, tapered columns and decorative brickwork. 

    A major feature of the four townhouses is a brick screen inspired by the design of the existing house. The brick screen is a reference to the face-brick detailing on the old house, evident as a pattern of brick infill screening on the underside of the house. 

    The brick screen not only creates a sense of identity for the row houses but also protects them from the Western sun. Constructed by William Briggs Bricklaying, the brick screen blends the earthy face-brick character of the bungalow style with the frugal suburban vernacular of the Brisbane urban fringe.

    PGH bricks used for the application include Alpine and Crevole (Velour) in readily available standard run and colour, laid in a familiar bond but placed in a particular way to create pattern, light, shade and decoration reminiscent of its predecessor.
