“Face brick finishes of which graffiti bricks are a hero - give texture. It can’t be said any more clearly than that - texture. Visual texture, tactile texture, a sense of place and belonging.” - Julian Brenchley.
Pictured is the Melbourne Orthopaedic Group facility in Prahran - a beautifully curated commercial build, epitomising urbanistic Melbourne design.
Created by the minds of Erilyan Construction and Julian Brenchley Architecture, this building extension encapsulates contemporary design and Melbourne’s artistic essence, with bricks splashed with the graffiti paint that once completed them.
EcoGroup’s recycled bricks have become a staple in thousands of builds across Australia. Decorated with the memories from the builds they once fashioned, recycled bricks have become one of the most popular products to create a build - with character.
When Melbourne architect, Julian Brenchley dreamt up the build for the Melbourne Orthopaedic facility, he opted for a brick that remains contentious between home design connoisseurs - the graffiti brick, decorated with coloured paint and undeniable character.
