A trip down memory lane on The Block
We’ve had an incredible time on The Block where we’ve had the chance to showcase a range of our colours, textures and applications. We thought we’d share some of our favourite moments from the past few years.
Here we go again! This year for the first time ever, The Block is getting out of town and having a tree-change. We can’t wait to show you the spectacular results, with each palatial home being built on large acreages in the beautiful foothills of the Macedon Ranges.
A cul-de-sac in Hampton, one of Melbourne’s most sought-after suburbs, was the site of The Block’s 2021 Fans V Faves. It put some old favourites up against keen newcomers and COLORBOND® steel got to play an important role in transforming the entire streetscape. Ronnie + Georgia’s Surfmist® Matt corner block caught a lot of attention, but how do we go past the House 3’s COLORBOND® steel clad outdoor area with that rounded-corner window!
Set in Melbourne’s affluent beachside suburb Brighton, The Block in 2020 used 5 period homes to explore styles and eras from the past. We excitedly contributed to the wide colour palette to ensure each house was a show-stopper! That chamfered edge was a big winner in our books!
What a year 2019 was! We were everywhere! We were “back on The Block” and we had TRUECORE® steel in all the new extensions of the Gatwick plus we were able to feature all 5 Matt colours for the first time. The highlights were those rooftop terraces and the entire back of the build was a showcase of the COLORBOND® steel Matt range!
In 2018, BlueScope introduced TRUECORE® steel to The Block with frames made from TRUECORE® steel being used to construct the top-story apartment for Carla + Bianca. The roof-top terrace was then clad in Monument® Matt, creating a sleek and modern apartment with stunning views of Melbourne City.
The Block in 2017 was in Elsternwick, VIC and COLORBOND® steel was used across the whole line-up of houses. Elsternwick was the first time we met Ronnie + Georgia, who go on to become fan favourites!
This year might be the biggest Block ever, but it also features a very exciting small addition for the very first time.
In Week 2, our VIC Colour + Design professional Ali Fenton, visited the Gisborne site to have onsite catch ups with House 1 and Scott Cam’s house.
This season, COLORBOND® steel is seen on The Block from Day 1.
The move to Gisborne in regional Victoria provides COLORBOND® steel with the opportunity to use more colours then ever before!
We were able to showcase our stunning COLORBOND® steel products because of the support of our fantastic customers and partners: LCS Plumbing + Civil Drainage and Nine In Six.
Since their stint on The Block in 2012’s ‘Fans vs. Favs’, Kyal and Kara have been busy in the design and building game.
