More Than Just Bricks and Mortar
When designing and personalising your new Simonds home, you’ll be faced with a lot of decisions. From tapware and door handles, to flooring and roofing, there’s a range of elements, big and small, that come together to form your dream home.
One of the biggest decisions you’ll face is, of course, bricks.
As you go to your building site, you’ll see the slab go down, the frame go up and the bricks laid. They’re one of the first signs that you’ll see of your home coming to life. Your choice of bricks will set the tone of what’s to come, and create a great first, and lasting, impression on those passing by and anyone who steps through your front door.
They’ve been a staple of homes across the Australian landscape for as long as we can remember. From the quintessential, red brick Federation-style homes, to the decorative brickwork facades on the Art Deco apartments scattered throughout our inner-city neighbourhoods. Bricks are more than just building blocks, they’re an expression of our unique style and way of life.
No one understands the timeless and enduring power of the humble brick and mortar more than PGH Bricks. Drawing inspiration from local and global trends in design, fashion and architecture, the PGH Bricks Style Guide delivers nine curated palettes that invite you to explore your personal style in new and unexpected ways.

And don’t just take our word for it. The Manhattan - East Hampton from PGH’s Modern Industrial palette has quickly become a crowd favourite for those looking to create a rustic look and feel.
While those drawn to the mid-century modern trend should look no further than the Morada - Blanco Linear from the New Neutrals palette. Laid in a stack-bond pattern, this brick can be used indoors or out to create an effortless look on a range of design styles and homes.
