The Compton Residence is a ten-store residential building in a London suburb. The project is strongly influenced by Art Deco-style, and its soft curves, geometric patterns and an amazing façade of cast aluminium come together to create a prestigious feel.
Residents and visitors of the building are welcomed by a stoic masonry with a generous canopy. The ground floor is clad in RT 153 – a detail that provides a robust and beautiful base for the prestigious and detailed building.
Each of the 49 apartments is planned to make the most of the views allowed by the curved bays, that is also the signature of the building. The bays are adorned with an imprinted leaf pattern – an Art Deco-style reference to the neighbouring Regents Park.
This project is a prime example of the fine line between respect for tradition and necessary innovation. In a historic part of the old Danish capital, five townhouses accommodate apartments, shops, a culture house as well as a state-of-the-art subway station – and it harmonises with the historic neighbourhood.
The centre of the project is a courtyard surrounded by five townhouses. Each house has a unique bond and technique, but all masonry is based on RT 154 and RT 554. The use of identical bricks provides a common thread across the five townhouses. As such, they are alike but unique.
The size and position of windows in the 30 apartments of the project imitate its neighbouring buildings. In the same way, the finish is inspired by the many towers on the boulevard, that was initially inspired by Paris’ Champs Elysee.
Settled in the background, this Belgian villa doesn’t reveal much, but the rolling meadows and a broad driveway invite you to have a closer look. The layout surrounds a beautiful fig-planted courtyard with two-story floor-to-roof windows that reflect on the sizable swimming pool.
Secluded completely from the outside, this tempting poolside has the perfect waterstruck backdrop with Ultima’s raw and coarse touch. Ultima RT 153 with a retracted mortar really gives the long format the limelight on this exclusive private residence.

The vision behind the new headquarters at Hammershøj is called Supersize Bricks and covers the architect’s visual expression.
The administration building consists of four 'stacked bricks'. To make these stones habitable, they are scaled by a factor of 92. The proportions of the stones have been preserved so that the expression at a distance will have clear references to the format of a Danish brick – now only at 21x10x5 meters. The same expression is repeated on the production buildings, which simultaneously act as exhibition walls and demonstration of mortar types and curves.
This architect-designed villa is located in the exclusive residential district of Blankenese in Hamburg. The former fishing and pilot village west of the city stretches along the banks of the Elbe. Referred to as “The Pearl of The Elbe”, this neighbourhood has a Mediterranean feel with scenic paths, winding stairs and a dense population of mansion dotted between lush greens. The villa itself is blessed with high-detailed masonry and open panoramic views. The RT 154 Ultima expresses warmth with its sand-coloured diversity. Brick by brick.
Situated in an evergreen and lush German forest, this education centre is built in major blocks with overhangs that provide both shade and recreational space. Panoramic views of the natural sourroudings create a supreme learning facility.

This architect designed Danish villa combines a Californian vibe with a clever layout and composition of materials. A customized Ultima-brick was crafted exclusively for this project: The RT 161. The gloomy bricks with bronze strokes add both calm and elegance to the building's base. Inviting the bricks inside contrasts the wooden floors, the floating staircase and white surfaces.

Beställare med en tomt på över 2000m2 i Höllviken med ambitionen att få något utöver det vanliga åt sin familj.
En stor inspirationskälla har varit Frank Lloyd Wright, som var en mästare i att utnyttja teglets möjligheter. Han använde ofta långa fönsterband under ett utskjutande takutsprång med svagt slutande tak och med den murade skorstenen som ett viktigt arkitektoniskt element.
Arkitekten beskriver teglet som ett fantastiskt material som åldras vackert samtidigt som att det är underhållsfritt. Vidare så berättar arkitekten att det speciella avlånga tunna formatet på Ultimastenen förstärker det horisontella formspråket som man även kan se i gamla byggnader som tex. i Rom. Formatet och kulören på RT 154 ger en fantastisk varm yta som man gärna vill ta och känna på.
Bottenvåningens stomme är i Leca Isoblock med utvändigt tegel Ultima RT 154. Vissa delar av fasaden samt undersida takutsprång är klädda med cederträ som tar upp tallarnas färg. På golv är det kalksten alternativt trä. Vardagsrum och matplats delas av med öppen spis klädd med natursten. Dörrar och invändiga fönster är ek.
Huset är placerat på tomten med långfasad i sydväst där alla rum har kontakt med trädgårdssidan med terrass och pool.
Kök/matplats/vardagsrum i öppet samband med direkt utgång till uteplats.
På bottenvåning ligger också ungdomsavdelningen med eget allrum och entré.
På ovanvåning master bedroom med badrum och walk-in closet.
Byggnaden är uppdelad i olika volymer förskjutna i förhållande till varandra med de karaktäristiska smäckra takutsprången.
Husets area är cirka 200m2.
