The rise of the brick in interior design
Exposed bricks for interiors are one of the hottest interior design trends of the last few years. Offices, restaurants and universities are all embracing the brick as an internal façade; bricks are sturdy, honest, and linked to a place’s history – values that businesses want to reflect to attract customers.
BAM has had to turn external brick walls into internal feature walls for two major London education buildings in the last few years. At Westminster Kingsway College
near Victoria, what were previously the external facades of the building are turning into the internal wall for the new atrium. We’re using a TORC system
which uses a mixture of low air pressure, little waste and inert fine granulate to clean the bricks and restore their original colour. We’ve also reused bricks to close up openings, rather than disposing them as waste.
