At first glance, the palette of the Australian landscape conveys a dry and harsh environment. But, when you look closely at the sun-drenched ochres and parched earth tones, there is a depth and beauty, just as in the landscape itself. GB Masonry has captured this natural beauty and timeless style in the Arcadia veneer range of masonry blocks.
Brickworks launched the GB Veneer Arcadia range as a part of its 2021 new arrivals. The range presents a selection of solid concrete blocks designed for both internal and external use. Masonry blocks are one of the most sought-after finishes in residential design, as they are low maintenance and easy to install. They present countless benefits over other materials, such as sound insulation, weather, fire, and termite resistance, and thermal mass, reducing the need for heating and cooling.
The range includes four distinct tones: Desert Sunrise, Natural Earth, Red Sand, Smoky Grey. From afar, the collection presents a pristine architectural pattern of blocks in an unyielding natural tone. As you approach, though, each block betrays delicate mottling and variation, playfully interrupting the often-taciturn uniformity of architectural façades, while speaking to the spirit and style of the Australian landscape in all of its imperfect beauty.
GB Masonry has become an icon of Australian masonry since its founding in 1978. Committed to creating products that achieve an impeccable architectural style through attention to detail and expert use of materials, through only using the best quality sands and aggregates raw products, the company ensures each block is unrivalled in its quality and finish.
Inspired by the earth hues and ochre tones of the Australian landscape and designed to emulate the natural gradients and subtle variation of natural elements, the Arcadia range by GB Masonry offers a bold yet grounded play on contemporary Australian style, an aesthetic that promises to be as timeless as the material itself.
