Instead of confectionery, dream homes are now being produced in an old factory in Tallinn, Estonia. The modern three-part residential complex is an innovative mix of historic and new buildings. The upgrade/extension was designed by Luhse ja Tuhal architecture office. The roof and façades of the new building were constructed using the ceramic roof tile Pottelberg 301 in anthracite engobe by Wienerberger.
Six residential units in Lithuania were designed to form one unit - while still retaining the look of individual houses. For the Paupys apartment complex, the architects used vari-coloured bricks (red, brown and grey) to harmoniously blend into the townscape of Vilnius.

In Moscow, the architectural bureau Tsimailo Lyashenko and Partners created an artistic, luxurious multi-family building: Kompozitsiya No. 24. For the golden brick, three matt and high gloss textures of Terca Glazur bricks were mixed, which resulted in an interesting surface that creates a spillover effect even on overcast days.
Containing 144 individual apartments, this building makes a significant impact for the residents of Helsinki. The visual structure of the façade was created by using the two-tone colours of Superwhite Retro and Dark Pellava Retro facing bricks from the Wienerberger Koria series. JKMM Architects and Samuli Miettinen Architects made use of a special bond method, where part of the excess mortar spreads over the brick surface to create stunning effects.
When temperatures rise, sophisticated planning alone is not enough – ecological and efficient insulating materials are a must. In France, this project satisfied these requirements with self-insulating clay blocks from Wienerberger. Architect: Midi Architecture
The 50 m-tall Allure development is located in Paris. The residential project was built in amongst dense, existing architecture. A façade panel system with integrated clay bricks boosts the building’s sense of radiance, helping it to stand out from the surrounding urban architecture.
The Groen Steenbrugge project : The common feature of all the buildings is brick façades, for which very simple bricks were used. The differences between the façades stem from the brick bonds and the thickness of the joints (thin-bed joints in the residential buildings, glued joints in the office building). The colors of the bricks are carried over to the roof tiles.
