BlueScope is a proud major sponsor of The Block 2023.
The Block is back in town! Well, East Hampton to be exact. After last year when we all went bush on acreages in the foothills of Victoria’s Macedon Ranges, The Block returns to Melbourne’s popular bayside suburb of East Hampton with five properties wrapping around a corner position.
The competition has now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered. Congratulations to the winner
Each year, The Block manages to bring with it all sorts of impressive firsts on many different levels. Adding to the list this year is the unique COLORBOND® steel installation team on Kyle and Leslie’s eye-catching monochromatic masterpiece - House 1.
House 1’s façade has a modern coastal feel, but with elevated profiles and materials that pay homage to the coastal environment and the home’s history with the repurposed warm toned bricks.
House 2’s design concept is focused around a modern version of mid-century design both internally and externally. Mixed materials were a huge influence in mid-century design including the use of mixed shapes like linear and curved lines.
House 3's exterior already makes a strong colour statement, with a dark upper level and lighter colours below.
House 4 is possibly the most “traditional” house on the Block, with the external look highly inspired by the so-called board-and-batten style of modern cottages.
The neutrality of the Bluegum® colour works perfectly within House 5's design concept which blends urban aesthetics with a bohemian feel.
We’d like to take a moment to compliment the skill and dedication of a select group of customers and partners that have enabled us to showcase COLORBOND® steel and highlight the attributes it can bring to a construction project like The Block.
This season on The Block, COLORBOND® steel is set to feature in all sorts of exciting and innovative ways across this year’s five houses.
COLORBOND® steel launched three new colours in 2022, and all three feature on The Block this year. These new colours bring a fresh direction to the COLORBOND® steel palette, along with the durability to perform in some of Australia’s harshest conditions.
Part of the challenge this year on The Block, is to work with the architect's exterior scheme from the very start!
It’s that time of year again when The Block is back to grab the attention of millions of viewers across Australia. Let’s quickly dive back through our time on The Block and share some of the highlights.
