The Calder View development in West Yorkshire, has combined Forterra's Clumber Red Mixture with Thoresby Buff Multi bricks to achieve a sense of uniformity in phase one of the project which incorporates an eclectic mix of one and two bedroom apartments and two, three, four and five bedroom houses in an attractive canal-side setting in the Thornhill Lees district of Dewsbury.
The autumnal red and purple hues of the Clumber Red Mixture are a perfect contrast to the soft buttery tones of the Thorseby Buff Multi. Their amalgamation helps to enhance the lively assortment of properties that are either built entirely from the red or buff bricks.
This method allows different house styles to display their own personality while natural buff stone blocks, used to frame windows and doors, and matching natural mortar tie the buildings together, representing a sense of cohesion throughout each street scene.
