Long Format Bricks
Popular mediterranean style bricks
As architecture evolves and designers look to more traditional materials for new builds, bricks have become one of the most interesting and varied sources of inspiration. With more colours and textures available than ever before, a façade can be transformed with a little imagination and a call to Modular Clay Products to discuss our latest brick designs. Roman bricks are becoming increasingly popular in the UK, with architects appreciating the dramatic effect these long, slender bricks can have on the aspect of any building.
Traditionally following a length of two feet by one foot, Roman bricks were fired in mobile kilns that followed the Empire as it expanded. Used for both civic and residential building projects, some original examples can still be seen today around the UK – but modern variations are also appearing in new builds across the country. While the aesthetics of Roman bricks may differ from our traditional brick, the level of quality in both selection of materials and manufacturing meets the rigorous standards we insist on for all the bricks we supply.
