for nice places
Building with historic bricks gives your house a soul and an exclusive, contemporary style. The strength of these reclaimed bricks resides in the fact that they gain in character and value as the years pass. We reclaim bricks very carefully when dismantling entire buildings in order to re-use them in new or renovated buildings. Moreover, we do the environment a favour in the process. This way of working is also known as ‘circular construction’. It means that we throw away as few materials as possible after the demolition of a building and that we re-use them appropriately afterwards.
With our years of knowledge and experience, we have decided to bake our own bricks the way they did 200 years ago. These bricks are custom-made for your project.
