Austral Bricks Award for Most Effective Use of Brick

Carlton Project

Nagy Design Pty Ltd for Carlton Project
(03) 9560 5454
(Also one of the Dual Winners of Best Heritage Design)

“The client’s brief was to create two luxury apartments from a discarded heritage building in Carlton that were unique in size to the otherwise smaller allotted area,” said Zol Nagy. “Important was to keep its heritage integrity intact, and create interesting spaces throughout. City views were also high on the wish list.”

“The Judges agreed that this project demonstrates a most effective use of brickwork,” said Geoff Hoare, Chair of the Judging Panel. “They said the designer had used the texture and colour of existing and reclaimed brickwork, both as an exterior and interior feature, throughout the building. The design concept has featured the beauty of brickwork to its greatest effect.”
