Private Residence with Flint Hills Roman Maximus

Flint Hills Residence makes a bold statement on the Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. The home was designed to add a sleek, modern mid-century style design among a traditional Chicago-neighborhood. Glen-Gery’s Roman Maximus size brick was the perfect fit to achieve this objective.


This two-story home features a single large off-set window on the second floor which adds to the minimalistic design and clean lines. The innovative-look of the structure of the home adds an intriguing curbside appeal to the neighborhood and will blend well with future homes within the community. The homeowners stated, “there was no other sustainable, natural material that could protect our family and create this beautiful look.”


This home sure stands out on the block and has already begun influencing future neighbors to select a similar home-style and long-linear brick like the Roman Maximus size offers. The brown to beige/cream color scheme of Flint Hills is timeless, and suits the neighboring properties and environment perfectly.

Elmhurst Memorial Hospital

Elmhurst Memorial Hospital’s massive 866,000-square-foot medical building sits on a 50-acre campus, located in Illinois. The medical facility has been recognized as one of the most beautiful hospitals in the United States for five consecutive years and has won numerous awards. The buildings on campus date back to 1920’s, using traditional red molded brick. When the time came for expansion over the years, the task of matching new brick to the original building was no challenge for the Illinois Brick Company team, now a part of Brickworks. Brick manufacturer, Glen-Gery, is known for its renowned molded brick manufacturing which provides a vintage appearance and hand craftsmanship and was a perfect style to match the historic building.


The collaboration between the architect, distributor and mason throughout all phases of the design and build of this project were seamless. As a result, Elmhurst Memorial Hospital has transformed its campus into a state-of-the-art facility while preserving historical integrity and charm with beautiful red brick, a Glen-Gery Shenandoah molded. More than one and a half million brick were used on this campus to create an inviting, home-like appeal to incoming patients. The atmosphere of the entire campus cultivates healing of the mind, body and spirit.


There are several key unique features of this building, including the unmistakable red molded brick mixed with precast concrete and the beautiful, full-length windows, both of which showcase the building beyond the typical medical facility design.
