Inside the incredible $2.5million red brick warehouse home

A quirky home made from more than 100,000 red bricks oozes a factory-like feel to pay tribute to the industrial past of the neighborhood.

The four-bedroom, three bathroom property down Forrest Street in Mount Lawley, Western Australia aptly named ‘Brick House’ replicates the warehouse aesthetic through the exposed brick, sawtooth roof, concrete floors and steel beams.

The home sits on a small block of 308sqm but offers a generous 484sqm of space with 360 degree views from the roof terrace, a jacuzzi and hanging net for comfortable reading.

The red brick and black features continue throughout the home and into the bathrooms.  

‘The vision for Forrest Street was to create a renovated heritage factory turned house, belying the reality that it is a brand new structure,’ State of Kin told realestate.com.au.

‘It is an awfully deceptive project – combining cutting edge new materials with older, traditional techniques and vice-versa truly embracing history with the contemporary.’
