What’s the future of brick?

In this second part of a series on Brickworks, we look towards the future. Exciting innovations are taking place, pushing design and material technology in new directions.

Piercing the form: Barbara Hepworth at Heide

A leading figure of modernist sculpture in Britain in the 20th century, Barbara Hepworth is best known for her organic abstract sculptures and pioneering method of ‘piercing’ the form.

Embedded into its locale

Sympathetically coalescing the original Victorian architecture with the 1980s renovation by architect Mick Jörgensen, Studio Bright’s contemporary extension on Autumn House is masterful.

Value add

As the cost of land continues to grow, each square metre of dirt needs to work harder. These multi-use additions show how clever, agnostic spaces can add value.

Ruckers Hill House

This Edwardian house has been given an entirely new lease of life by Studio Bright. The contemporary wing, with its telescopic picture window and curvaceous walls, embraces the garden and neighbourhood.
