Unitized but "brick"? (173)

A highly prefabricated system reproducing the image of a traditional brick work. (Like in case Light prefabricated “brick” work).

The challenge is erecting a new building in an old neighbourhood being respectful with the image and material character of the surrounding buildings.

When the building context permits it (high of the building, calendar, planning …) the same team of architects erect a “real” wall (Brick wall supported over lintel). Not always possible.
