Red Soft Mud Creased Multi Brick
Hathaway Brindle is one of Desimpel's most popular facing brick products. It was used to great effect as the external façade of the prestigious Druidstone Grange development in South Wales.
The exclusive development of four stunning detached manor houses is located in one of the most upmarket areas of Cardiff. In creating this aspirational development and one of the most sought after addresses in the city, only the highest specification of materials was considered.
Leighton Morgans, land and planning director for bespoke developer Waterstone Homes, specified the brick himself. He said: “These are incredibly luxurious homes and internally they offer every modern comfort and convenience that is expected of a property with a six figure price tag.
The kerb appeal was vital and our experience has shown that while they want contemporary interiors, our buyers prefer the exterior of their homes to have character.
“The heritage appearance of the Desimpel bricks is reminiscent of times gone by, and contributed to the overall grandure of the property. It’s creased texture and varying colour tones emulates the look of a house that is hundreds of years old. Yet, because the bricks are new and not reclaimed, the individual blocks are much easier to work with, and the build therefore more efficient.
“Used in conjunction with the sandstone edgings and lintels, the Hathaway Desimpel brick has enabled Waterstone Homes to create a stunning building which blends well into its surroundings, and gives the impression of having stood, proudly in these grounds for many, many years.”

“House of Trace” may sound like a new American TV series, but it is the name of a worthwhile result of an architectural concept: a small house, a (barely) freestanding building that completes a row of terrace houses. They crosshatch narrow parcels of land in South London, UK, forming a building- historic construct, that the architects say can be read “as a product of the circumstances, the time, the place, the people involved, even the amount of money that was available at the time”.
The housing project 'Heath Lodge' in Ealing, London is an example of how site limitations can create opportunities. Labelled as a complex and difficult site to develop, Autor Architecture created a concept that respects the environment as well as the wishes of residents and neighbors. The site consists of an exposed front corner element and a concealed rear element. Ealing council released it for redevelopment in 2005. Attempts by others to develop the site failed for viability reasons.
The Seven Acres residential project in the UK garnered a whole series of awards before it was even completed. The prizes recognized not only the architecture, but also the concept of sustainability applied in the 128 newly constructed homes.
