Case Studies in Brick

Architects inspire us every day. You take our simple, versatile clay fired brick to incredible heights and creative places. We celebrate your innovation with the buildings we feature regularly in print ads and brochures. And now Acme Brick introduces Case Studies in Brick, a growing library of in-depth looks at the design work that goes into these projects.

Here you can view and download presentations that include:

  • technical details and descriptions;
  • a wider range of photography; and
  • unique applications of colors, textures, and patterns.

Take the dive into our ocean of opportunities!

 

Washington Heights Elementary, Fort Worth

Washington Heights Elementary School is back in the sunshine, rebuilt above grade to replace a 1979 underground school. Airport noise mitigation now comes from angled walls of Featherlite Hill Country Stone. Entry and playground facades have colorful walls of Acme Brick, animated by a multicolor basketweave pattern that celebrates the school's prominent site. With Acme’s durable, beautiful masonry products, the future is bright, indeed.

Worthington Bank, Clearfork

Many of Fort Worth’s best-loved buildings are built of modular Acme Brick. Now that roster includes a bank literally next door to our headquarters. Every aspect of the new Worthington National Bank building speaks to elegance, sophistication, and respect for tradition. Yet the entire project, from pilasters to arches, was executed using only economical modular brick, in standard colors and textures, sourced from nearby brick plants.

Central Academic Building, Texas A&M San Antonio

This project opens a new chapter for the revered A&M system, and an entire new line for Acme Brick. The expansive campus is a bold commitment to an underserved South Texas population, designed to interpret regional tradition and architectural history in striking ways. Acme Brick worked closely with the design team to create a blade cut brick for a smoother alternative to wire cutting. Now, we are making select blade cut blends available as new options in creative design to take your imagination further.
