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.
Back to the city
After a year where The Block went bush in the lush, green foothills of Victoria’s Macedon Ranges, it returns to Melbourne’s popular bayside suburb of East Hampton, with a stunning transformation planned for five adjoining houses arranged around a prime corner position.
We’re going to see some surprisingly fast-paced changes, with each of the existing single storey dwellings quickly getting a second storey (thanks to frames of TRUECORE® steel), together with luxurious interiors and some pretty impressive backyard granny flats.
Whether you’re planning a new home that’s built to last, levelling up your outdoor space or just need some spending money, here is your chance to WIN $35,000 to help complete your transformation thanks to TRUECORE® steel and COLORBOND® steel.
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.
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.
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.
Ever wanted to see The Block houses in your favourite COLORBOND® steel colours? Now you can! The COLORBOND® steel visualiser now has House 1 and House 5 included in the library- for a limited time!
Part of the challenge this year on The Block, is to work with the architect's exterior scheme from the very start!
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.
