Hunt is On to Reward Designer Brick Homes

Think Brick Awards (14/12/2015)

A $5000 prize is on offer for the winner of Think Brick Award’s prestigious Horbury Hunt Residential category this year.

The awards attracted the highest volume of entries in 2012 and the response for this year has already surpassed that total.

Think Brick CEO Elizabeth McIntyre said the award was important as it recognised the craftsmanship and brickwork in residential projects.

“What past entries have shown is how beautiful brick look can look in the construction of the family home,” she said.

“The colours, textures and designs indicate the versatility of brick and how it can be used. Think Brick continues to reward architects for designing in brick and I look forward to seeing the quality of entries this year.”

Nominated projects must be built in Australia for residential purposes and includes dwellings with alterations and additions.
They must be completed since January 2011 and constructed with 75 per cent clay face brickwork or by using clay pavers.

Multi residential projects will be included in the Horbury Hunt Commercial category.

All nominations are to be completed online at www.thinkbrick.com.au before 5pm Friday, May 31 2013.
