Chocolate brick is cool again

I knew the day would come when chocolate brown brick was cool again, when hipsters would embrace the bain of the 70s and 80s, re-inventing and re-invigorating the humble little brick. Those of us who lived through its last incarnation gladly waved goodbye to the light-sucking, prison-like boxes that were often made from it ... but not now. It's back and it's bold and bright. It's all in how you use the little blighter. Welcome back chocolate brown brick! Dolce Lane house by Klopper & Davis Architects.

While it does work out in the garden, the chocolate brick STILL looks heavy and light-sucking in the internal spaces. Just imagine each wall covered with plain white render and suddenly the rooms open up and become bigger and brighter.

It's beautiful on the outside. As I recall from my '70s memories, inside it tended to have a glossy ceramic glaze.
I like the exterior lighting here.
