Another fine example of the Brick Generation can be found in Carignano, a small town in the province of Turin with a wealth of art and archaeological treasures. The owners of the building were keen to ensure that the work carried out should be in keeping with the form of the construction and in harmony with the centuries-old fabric of the town, and the 6x25 brick tile from the Bristol series, in the colour Cream, was chosen to cover the masonry walls.
The distinctive feature of the Carignano project is undoubtedly the proper, creative use of the single-piece corner element like a “real” brick. The building also features the stringcourse, an architectural element typical of historical apartment buildings and villas, which – together with the loggias on the top floor – punctuates the facade.
Ceramics and elements from the Bristol series were supplied by Ceramiche Pejretti di Maurizio in Carignano, a trusted retailer of Ceramica Rondine products.
