Beautiful building in brick, the kind of house that we may often pass without noting the beauty.

I have a penchant for facades & charming buildings. They can basically look anyway but something must attract, catch the eye & say something. This does, with the bricks, the tiny door & windows & the pea green colour.

I don’t know what it is with rooftops, bricks, concrete & buildings in densely populated areas – something about it attracts.

Windows, roof ridges, balconies, different building styles, as well as one & another detail that stand out,

(like the small car out on the balcony).

Another brick in the wall / 147

Hej friends,

I’ve been out ¬†on a city tour with some friends & Sydney’s suburbs are full of beautiful & exciting brick houses & buildings. Our first house was in red brick, even though we said, anything but a brick house.¬†It¬†turned¬†out¬†well anyhow¬†& we¬†lived¬†there¬†long enough to¬†renovate the entire house¬†before we moved.¬†I have not¬†always been¬†particularly fond of¬†brick¬†as material.¬†Maybe because I felt that those houses was cold & without soul when I was younger.¬†I grew up in a society that largely consisted of wooden houses, since it was traditionally, the material used in the construction industry …&¬†that still is. What else can you¬†expect from¬†a country that¬†is covered by forest.¬†I love¬†wood in all¬†kinds of shapes,¬†it’s¬†an unbeatable¬†material.

We¬†once had a¬†recreation room with¬†a red¬†brick¬†wall around the¬†fireplace¬†while¬†the other walls¬†were¬†pine paneling.¬†I thought¬†long to¬†paint the¬†brick¬†wall¬†white, but¬†never got started, I¬†think¬†deep down, I wanted to keep¬†the natural¬†red brick¬†as it was.¬†That said, it’s nice with brick houses but I also think it’s exciting to let a brick wall be visible, in a room together with other materials.¬†It adds another dimension, an additional structure that provides warmth¬†&¬†character.¬†Let’s take¬†a look at the¬†different interiors¬†below…
