Heritage Portland Stone® Bricks: A Sensational Low Carbon Addition to the Brick Market

29/02/2024 • News

Albion Stone is currently halfway through supplying their exquisite Heritage Portland Stone® Bricks for this project. This magnificent property, nestled in the picturesque Dorset countryside amid vast farmland, demanded a natural local material that was both easy to lay and low in embodied carbon. After catching sight of the launch of Albion Stone's Heritage Portland Stone® Bricks on social media at the 2023 Clerkenwell Design Show, LTS Architects and the client were convinced it was the perfect fit for the project.

The brickwork commenced shortly after Christmas, and despite some rain delays, the first floor and an external wall were erected swiftly and are already completed. The builders are highly satisfied with the brick's quality and ease of installation. The client is thrilled with the diverse aesthetic these bricks impart to their stunning property.

The brickwork phase of the project is projected to be finished over the next 4-5 weeks, during which Albion Stone will have supplied a total of 20,000 bricks.
