General Shale has announced the launch of its Impressionist Brick Series, which provides architects with long, thin brick units for more design options in both commercial and residential projects.

Offered in brown, gray and red tones with two textures, the Impressionist Brick Series is defined by exaggerated unit lengths and shallow face heights. With demand for elongated bricks continuing to grow, this product line enables architects to bring another dimension to their projects by emphasizing the linearity of the façade of a building.

Whether incorporating the brick with matching mortar for a monolithic effect, using contrasting mortar for visual interest, or mixing brick sizes to achieve a multi-layered pattern, Impressionist profiles offer opportunities for architectural designers who seek to establish a modern look, while retaining all the benefits of masonry walls.

Along with bringing appeal to residential and commercial builds, the Impressionist Brick Series may also be coordinated with older, historic brickwork to impart a contemporary aspect to a project, allowing a renovation to successfully bridge the gap between traditional and modern design.

The Impressionist Brick Series is available in Andover, Rothwell and Wexford Fog in a wire-cut texture, and Bedford Brown, Keswick and Manchester in a smooth finish.
