Recap on Past Years
Tue, 02/08/2022 – 08:49
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!
