Luxury Bricks From PGH Bricks & Pavers

The Lang Mursten collection of long form luxury bricks from PGH Bricks & Pavers has been designed to fulfil the aesthetic and functional demand of architects, building designers and homeowners alike – for a truly unique and distinctive style.

Exclusively sourced from Denmark, these bricks benefit from the rich cultural heritage of Denmark’s design and construction industries and their premium quality materials. PGH’s Lang Mursten collection benefits from over 100 years of clay brickmaking excellence and craftsmanship, combined with modern technical superiority and a desire to craft bricks suited to creative and innovative projects.

This extra-long format of water-struck clay bricks is defined by its sleek, elongated form. They are rustic, yet contemporary, and deliver an elevated and distinctive aesthetic to luxury builds, while still accentuating the raw, authentic beauty of clay.

Gehl bricks from the Lang Mursten collection

Named after renowned Danish architects, the Lang Mursten collection is available in four sophisticated colourways:

Gehl — a dramatic charcoal colour that is warm and moody. Finished with a stylish matte surface and tonal variations for added depth, Gehl is a brick for a sophisticated and urban design.

Lund — a finish with dark earthy hues that blend with softer sandy tones to create a subtle, rustic finish.

Larsen — for those after something lighter, Larson juxtaposes 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.

The Lang Mursten collection 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. Their style, size and unique colour options provide architects, building designers and homeowners with a look that’s completely fresh within the current residential landscape. The long, thin form (468x108x38mm) of each brick accentuates the horizontal and linear aspects of contemporary building design and their gritty, textured finish offers warmth, personality and authenticity.

Each brick features slight variations, delivering an imperfect, handcrafted look, achieved through a 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. And once fired, the final result is a textural patina not replicated by any other brickmaking process.

The Lang Mursten collection from PGH Bricks & Pavers represents the perfect fusion of cutting-edge design and practical functionality for those seeking a truly extraordinary product to support the integrity and aesthetic of a luxury build. The collection exudes luxury. It reimagines an ancient, yet modern material, reworking it to service architects, building designers and homeowners who are sensitive to the historic relevance of clay brick and have a considered contemporary and luxurious aesthetic.
