Experience even more light and space in your post-war brick home
After WWII, between 1945 and 1965, double-fronted and triple-fronted brick veneer homes saw a rise in popularity. Domestic buildings grew in number to accommodate the widespread immigration which occurred. These new houses were designed for family lifestyles, usually featuring interconnected living rooms and plenty of windows to let in ample light.

Key features of post-war brick homes
Post-war brick houses reflect the optimism and growth occurring in Australia during the 50s and 60s.
Brick veneer was cheaper and faster to construct than solid brick, and became a key feature of these homes.
Double and triple-fronted
These homes are easily identified by their staggered facades, often featuring hipped roofs.
Glass became cheaper to produce thanks to new industrial processes, so more windows were able to be incorporated into post-war brick homes. Steel window frames often replaced timber sash windows.
These homes built out, instead of up, with interconnected living rooms and family rooms.
