June 18th, 2019
The Lang Mursten collection from PGH Bricks & Pavers is the perfect fusion of cutting-edge design and practical functionality. Reimagining a traditional building material as modern, by reworking it to facilitate architects and builders, ensures that the collection is considered, contemporary and luxurious.
Sourced exclusively from Denmark, these bricks derive from the region’s rich heritage of both design and building industries. Additionally, the Lang Mursten collection benefits from over 100 years of brickmaking excellence and craftsmanship, combined with modern technology engineering superiority and a desire to craft bricks suited to creative and innovative construction.
The range bears all the hallmarks of classic Danish design – contemporary and stylish, with exquisite artistry and attention to detail. These extraordinary bricks provide quality and individuality. The style, size and unique colour options on offer provide architects, building designers and homeowners with a look that’s completely fresh in the current residential and multi-residential landscape.
These extra-long format (468mm x 108mm x 38mm), water-struck, clay bricks are defined by their sleek, elongated form. Rustic, yet contemporary, they deliver an elevated and distinctive aesthetic to luxury builds by accentuating the authentic beauty of clay. Their long form accentuates the horizontal and linear aspects of contemporary building design, while their textured finish offers warmth, personality and authenticity.
Each brick features slight variations, delivering an imperfect, handcrafted look, achieved through the water-struck moulding process. Moulds are lubricated with water to keep the clay from sticking. Once filled, excess clay is ‘water-struck’ from the top of the moulds, giving the bricks their unique texture and finish.
The bricks take their individual names from renowned Danish architects and are available in four sophisticated colourways:
GEHL — a dramatic charcoal colour that is warm, yet moody, with a matte finish and tonal variations for added depth and interest and a sophisticated and urban result.
LUND — dark earthy hues blend with softer sandy tones to create a subtle, rustic finish.
LARSEN — for those after something lighter, Larson juxtaposes various shades of pale grey with a roughened, textured finish for a contemporary, natural aesthetic.
UTZON — warmer shades of clay are organically interspersed with cooler counterparts to create a stunning tonal variation, coupled with a unique texture for a look that’s extraordinary and timeless.
Some design projects require a range of bricks out of the ordinary. Bricks that deliver a unique and elevated aesthetic, while maintaining the raw, authentic beauty of clay brick. The Lang Mursten collection from PGH Bricks & Pavers is such a range – designed to meet the demand of architects, building designers and homeowners on the hunt for truly unique and distinctive building materials.
