On this recently finished built in BBQ, Phoenix clients chose a casual look with California Old Brick veneer. They also chose to group all the hot elements on the patio into one unit, and added a wood-burning fireplace along side the gas grill.
This is a new facing brick option that has great weathered character in a range of warm tones that is no doubt destined to grace more patios in Phoenix and Scottsdale. On this particular project, the bar top and prep area has a concrete counter that is repeated on the top of the wood box to the right of the outdoor fireplace. The top of the firebox, and chimney are capped with pale travertine that displays both light gray and beige markings to match the patio pavers.
California Old Brick gives you a brick finish with variety that will look great on a number of other landscaping elements… like pool fountain pillars, spa surrounds, shade roof post pedestals, and fire pits. It’s not as laid back and rustic as Mexican Clay brick, but still gives you a relaxed air that’s right at home in many of today’s backyard living spaces.
