Taylor Maxwell, a provider of façade solutions based in Bristol (UK), supplied the Storey’s Field Community Centre and Nursery with Wienerberger Con Mosso facing bricks and special shaped bricks. This cream, soft mud, creased multi brick has a soft and textured appearance, which makes it ideal for both external and internal façades.
Using facing bricks as a building material gave the architects the freedom to create individual façades by playing with laying patterns, detailing and eye-catching features, such as porthole and geometrical shaped windows. The manipulation of the same brick product throughout the whole build brings a sense of cohesion to the project. The brickwork also contributes to the ventilation techniques used on the project, with the projecting, recessed and missing headers on the high-level courses of Flemish bond allowing for passive air extract routes at the east and went ends of the high-ceilinged main hall.
