The exciting Channel 9 series – ‘The Block Sky High’ – featured some stunning applications of PGH glazed bricks from the Vibrant collection.
November 15th, 2013
PGH Watermelon bricks feature on the external entry to the building, adding a striking red glazed look. This playful and inviting entrance is then carried forward into the foyer of the building where the Watermelon Splits are featured. The use of both standard size and split fully glazed bricks creates a stunning juxtaposition of colour and texture on the exterior and interior walls. They light up the space with a real sense of fun.
‘The Block Sky High’ involved converting an old South Melbourne hotel into apartments – The Block’s biggest project to date. Five couples had to work on 6 floors with 80 rooms and convert each floor into a 220-square metre luxury apartment, complete with 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, open plan kitchen, living and dining, plus a huge enclosed terrace. And when they finished, they had to take on the common areas, including the roof terrace, foyer and entrance, which is where the PGH Vibrant bricks were used.
Finished with a full ceramic glaze, the Vibrant collection’s palette of colour is fun and funky, placing a whole new perspective on bricks and the way they are used. This can be seen in the finished result at ‘The Block Sky High’. Perfect for internal or external use, the collection consists of seven vital colours – Cosmic, Fizz, Paris, Wasabi, Rhapsody, Tango and Watermelon.
The Block Sky High aired on Channel 9 during May-July 2013 with the final auction aired on the 28th July.
– Watermelon bricks from the PGH Vibrant collection feature in the external entrance: approximately 2,000 bricks.
– Watermelon splits from the PGH Vibrant Splits collection feature in the internal foyer area: approximately 2,000 Splits.
