The Block 2023

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.

House 1 the Block 2023

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.

The Block 2023 - 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.

The block 2023 house 2

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.

The block 2023 house 4

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 block 2023 - House 5

The neutrality of the Bluegum® colour works perfectly within House 5's design concept which blends urban aesthetics with a bohemian feel.

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.
