Winerberger's Platinum White clay brick has been chosen for a villa in the semi-rural outskirts of Maidenhead in Berkshire. The villa is set set comfortably within the Green Belt, and has been designed by CSK Architects with contemporary aesthetics and ease of maintenance in mind.
The villa, which gives the impression of being built in a series of distinct rectangular sections, features multi level flat roofs that overhang from differing heights due to the irregular summits of each individual section. The dark, humble roofs beautifully offset the external brickwork, which has been intricately designed to present a pale and modern visage. To secure this, the architect selected Wienerberger’s Platinum White, a clay brick that interacts beautifully with natural daylight.
To enhance the exterior design, the architects employed a matching mortar, which established the principal monolithic plane into which openings were punched. The finished project, by virtue of the symbiosis with its locale, is a stunning example of how a building can truly fit with its surroundings whilst being both edgy and restrained in tandem.
