Blog/StoneCycling: A Different Brick In The Wall

Exposed brick is a feature often admired in warehouse homes. If you're embarking on building work, consider innovative Dutch firm StoneCycling. They recycle industrial waste to hand- and machine make sustainable bricks in a variety of sizes and colours.

Recognising debris from construction and demolition as one of the biggest sources of waste globally, StoneCycling is committed to the thought that this too can also be a resource. 

Through the act of grinding, crushing and mixing these industrial waste products, founder Tom van Soest, has created a new material that is both resilient and appealing. WastedBasedBricks have been applied in the construction of buildings throughout Europe and featured prominently in the design of interiors such as Fosbury&Sons, a co-working space in Antwerp, Belgium.
