Architecture collective Frankie Pappas has hidden the 3.3-metres-wide House of the Big Arch within the Bushveld nature reserve in the north of South Africa.As the house was located an hour-and-a-half drive to the nearest town, the architecture collective decided to make it an off-grid home – not connected to water or electricity networks. Clay brick is the ideal choice as it's dense mass provides natural insulation from temperature extremes.
Clay face bricks are the ideal, low-maintenance outdoor construction material for your patio, braai or boma. They won’t rot, tarnish, fade, rust, scuff, peel, erode or burn! Clay brick's enduring hues and textures look beautiful for life, and are unaffected by UV or sun. The varied colours and textures of natural brick complement both traditional and contemporary materials. The Clay Brick Association of South Africa is proud to be an industry leader in the move to more sustainable, energy-efficient buildings.FIND OUT MORE →
