This iconic product may not be new, but its beautiful, geometric play on light and shade, its value as a screen, and its durability as a building material are being appreciated and applied in novel and vastly varied ways. Recently, GB Masonry has added two new shapes to their product range, Flower Breeze and Cloud Breeze, opening up further opportunities to play with shape and light.
Ubiquitous in the 1950s and ’60s, breeze blocks became synonymous with the modish, mid-century aesthetics of Palm Springs bungalows, but their application was much more far-reaching, as they were heavily used in warm climate locales around the world.
A renewed appreciation for this material is again seeing homes designed with breeze block feature facades and walls. But their use hasn’t been confined solely to residential projects. So complete is this newfound love for the blocks that they’re even being incorporated into hospitality, retail and office builds.
