We have some very exciting news for the architecture and design community. The much sought after, super-long distressed brick that previously had to be imported from Europe (at considerable expense) is now available in North America! Our sister company, Arriscraft, introduced this trending, extra long brick earlier this year, allowing designers here access to this unique, weathered product that is both modern and aged at the same time.
Architectural Linear Series Brick comes in one (large) size, perfect for efficient installation: 2-3/4″ h x 23-5/8″ l x 3-3/4″ d. Notice the distressed edges that give it that rustic chic appeal. Architects can select from four sophisticated colors; top row – Obsidian and Opal, bottom row – Midnight Grey and Charcoal.
Just this summer, ODA Architecture completed 123 Melrose – a massive redevelopment of the former Rheingold Brewery site in Brooklyn, NY, which includes 1,000,000 square feet of apartment units. Our Architectural Linear Series Brick is used the multi-residential buildings.
Did you know that we also offer two additional long-brick options? Our Arriscraft Contemporary Brick is a sleek brick option with random lengths – an ideal choice for a contemporary finish on residential and multi-residential projects. Our Impressionist Brick Series – at 20-1/8″ long – creates a distinct modern appeal for commercial and residential projects; choose from six strong colors, in smooth and wire-cut texture options.
