It was a blockbuster, in an uncertain time the 2020 season of The Block prevailed with stunning homes and record breaking auction results. Read our interview with project architect, Julian Brenchley and view the video and picture gallery below.
Harry and Tash had the 1920s home to tackle, and the biggest house on The Block. With a northern facing aspect, and sprawling ceilings, yards and voids – they also had the most amazing spaces to work with, and we loved how they worked with Viridian Glass. Here are our highlights!
Front Door and Entry
The original 100 year old front door was restored, with the glass replaced with Viridian PixaGraphic™.
Kitchen and Dining
The northern facing kitchen and dining area provided unique access to natural light the other houses didn't have. Viridian LightBridge next™ double glazing of course!
The large doors connecting the outdoor to the indoor maximises that access to the northern light in the kitchen and dining area.
Stair balustrading created a seamless lines within the stairwell which enhances the light coming through the windows. Viridian VTough™ was used on here.
Viridian LightBridge next™ double glazing was used in the windows and doors.
Viridian VTough™ safety glass was used for the glass balustrades.
Viridian PixaGraphic™ was used in the restored front door.
