Forticrete Masonry blocks in a Splitface finish

May 2018

Masonry blocks in a Splitface finish

Forticrete's concrete masonry blocks in a Splitface finish have been specified for the extension of a striking one bedroom, ground floor Victorian flat in Herne Hill, South London.

Situated on the main route that connects Herne Hill, Tulse Hill and West Dulwich, the bold extension converted the property into a two bedroom flat, utilising simple but characterful materials, providing a large, flexible space at the rear of the existing property.

Nimi Attanayake and Tim O'Callaghan, Co-Founders of Nimtim, commented: "Materially, the palette was driven by a very tight budget but also a brief to be bold and playful. For the exterior, to add a new modern layer to the traditional architecture of the property, we specified Forticrete's Splitfaced architectural masonry in Ivory - an extremely cost-effective alternative to natural hewn stone. The blocks highlight the new addition yet still references the existing property's masonry characteristics and the variety of texture in the original London Stock brickwork."

Forticrete's Dense Concrete Masonry blocks are manufactured using up to 45% recycled content, depending on the product selected. Part of the company's ECOBLOCK range of masonry, these decorative concrete facing blocks are available in various finishes, profiles and a wide variety of exciting colours to ensure that architects and specifiers have access to an array of sustainable yet attractive solutions that will help make any building stand out from the crowd.
