Created by Dublin architects TAKA is this mews house featuring protruding brickwork. The brickwork pattern was actually placed on a Victorian home located in Dublin. The pattern was created by alternate bricks laid across the usual direction while the other forms an open mesh that doubles as ventilation.
While the brickwork pattern is certainly intricate and well done, from afar, it does resemble a waffle pattern. Mmmm, waffles!
Implications - Homeowners are demanding new designs to stand out from the cookie-cutter looks that are found in suburbia. By hiring a contractor to design a unique texture or use an interesting technique, the homeowner feels that their home is a testament to their individuality.
