Handmade Bricks get Slender New Look with Linear Range

Linear Handmade bricks by Imperial Bricks were specially manufactured for the extension of Halle St Peters in Manchester

We are proud to launch our new, long format handmade bricks, which enable architects and specifiers to create bold design statements and standout facades.

Our new collection of six different linear bricks – Soft Red variations, Original London Stock and York Clamp – are all available at 327 x 102 x 50mm, with slips cut to order.

Handmade, elegant and slender, the origin of linear bricks dates back to Roman times, although modern variations are increasingly sought-after for new build across the UK.

“Handmade linears offer architects an exciting opportunity to create distinctive projects that also complement and even enhance their surroundings. comments Jason Hughes, Managing Director of Imperial Bricks.

“These really are beautiful bricks. The long format can be used to emphasise angles in contemporary designs while the natural colour and finish variations add character and instantly establish a new building.”

Our linear bricks were recently specified by Stephenson STUDIO architects for a striking extension to the Grade II listed Hallé St Peter’s building in Manchester, which is shortlisted for a 2020 RIBA regional award.
