Looking for inspiration for your next brick project?

From traditional to contemporary, smooth to rustic, find the very best of brick architecture and be inspired for your next brick building design

Choosing clay brick for your project opens up a world of design possibilities. Hardly any other building material offers such a diverse choice of colours, shapes and textures. That is why brick architecture has been so popular throughout the ages and across the world, for everything from family homes and residential buildings to places of worship, offices, public spaces and more.

Brick architecture has been around for nearly 10,000 years and has been used by civilisations around the world, with the Industrial Revolution seeing a huge increase in brick production in Europe. Since then, innovative architects have been taking this ancient building material and using it to create the built environment of the future, going beyond traditional brickwork designs to create spaces that are as beautiful as they are durable.

Brick offers an enduring aesthetic appeal, unrivalled practical benefits, and the versatility to make pioneering architectural visions a reality. Browse our collection of inspirational brick architecture projects, including BDA Award and Brick Award winners, which showcase what can be achieved when you choose clay brick as your building material.
