Coste Special Shaped Bricks
The Coste profile, created and designed by the architect Vincent Coste, reflects a different format than standard bricks. When these bricks are applied vertically, Coste bricks give the illusion of length to façades or walls. When combined with smooth brick slips, these bricks give architectural projects a singular visual expression.
When these bricks catch the sunlight, unique lines and patterns are created by the way the materials add depth to a façade. Natural shades offer modern and neutral designs that will be valued for decades.
