Recently, a red-brick house renovated by Dream Renovator for elderly in Gansu caused a lot of controversy. Building materials such as red brick are inevitably labeled "low".
Actually, individual designers can't represent whole thing. In right place, red brick buildings can also be very advanced.
Let's share a wave of famous cases of red brick building and experience this simple beauty~
1. Works by Wowowa Studio
The cylindrical residence is mainly divided into upper and lower floors, with a restaurant on ground floor and bedrooms on second floor.
Mostly interior is finished with wood veneer, which creates a clear contrast with concrete floor. The red brick wall on one side echoes exterior of building and is full of retro style.
2. Modern contemporary home
The main body is box-shaped with red brick walls. The warm color of earth and cold color of metal create a harmonious space.
It's both retro and modern, warm and stylish.
3. Cafe "House with a cuckoo"
The main body of building surrounds courtyard, using brick walls, brick floors, seating areas and some plants to enrich entire space of building.
Inside opening is a large glass sliding door that visually increases transparency. Stairs on left and right side of coffee shop lead to a small courtyard and living area upstairs, which is comfortable and livable.
*Red brick can also be used as a decoration for back wall of villa
Internal walls of the villa
Restaurant fireplace wall
Kitchen background wall
So you can't tell if a material is good or not, it just depends on whether it's used in right place.
