A partnership with GB Masonry and Adam Goodrum has seen the inception of Kite Breeze, a revolutionary take on the breezeblocks of yore. Equal parts visually and functionally considered, Kite is a geometric, contemporary update on a classic that has made a serious resurgence in recent years. This combination of serious aesthetic appeal and unmatched design have won Kite and Adam Goodrum a top place in the Good Design Award of 2021. The award is Australia’s highest design honour, and has been operating and celebrating the best of Australian design for over 60 years.

Of the awards, Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia claimed, “receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received.” Highly-recognised in the design sphere, Adam Goodrum’s Kite Breeze has received a Gold Award in 2021’s Good Design Award. The award calls for “game-changing design projects that improve our quality of life and contribute to a better, safer and more sustainable future”.

No easy feat, being awarded is a significant honour and accomplishment. Each year, the awards garner interest from a plethora of applicants across the 12 main design disciplines and 30 categories. Kite was recognised due to its sustainable ethos and innovative design. Adam Goodrum said of Kite, “normally a breeze block has one extruded shape in a block resulting in one pattern. My design has the ability for a user to create endless patterns from the one building block and has a second layer or relief that works as a backdrop to capture shadow and light throughout the day”.

Kite is available in three versatile colours and two finishes. The White block is sleek and sophisticated, contemporary and refined, and it would suit any space. The Terracotta and Dune blocks feature a more tactile, natural finish, a nod to the design’s heritage. Each variety of Kite is created from an Italian clay base, meticulously crafted in San Selmo, Italy.

The Kite Breezeblock is an architecturally versatile option that is equal-parts nostalgic and contemporary. An update on the classic, Adam Goodrum’s adaptation is perfectly geometric, with a sleek, refined form that could work seamlessly alongside any home style. The perfect option for an outdoor entertaining space, or along a home’s facade, Kite is sure to make a statement, whilst allowing for timeless style. As functional as it is beautiful, Kite has the additional benefits of ventilation, airflow and filtered light, whilst maintaining security, privacy and shelter from the elements. 

Through Kite Breeze, Adam Goodrum has created a modern adaptation of an Australian classic, quintessential to our architectural landscape.
