Ladrillo, Light Airy Open Architecture

Red Hill, Queensland, Australia

Ladrillo (Spanish for ‘brick’) takes its cues from the Spanish Mission architectural style of the original Red Hill cottage. Utilising textured brick, recycled breezeblocks and original decorative plaster, this is architecture focused on textures – a fresh white palette not only unifies these textures, but also unites new and old.

Punctuated by a central courtyard distinctly separating these spaces, the design maintains visual connections through the light, airy open architecture, which ultimately creates a beautiful backdrop for family life.

Breezway Altair Louvre Windows help provide this feeling of spaciousness and open wide to allow light and plenty of ventilation into the home.
