Besser BlocksSuitable for interior and exterior wallsMuch cheaper than concrete but offering a similar hard-edged aesthetic, besser blocks – also known as breeze blocks or masonry blocks – are typically rectangular, hollow concrete blocks. Light yet strong, they are a versatile, inexpensive, and surprisingly under-rated option for walls. The holes in the centre of besser blocks offer several advantages: they can be reinforced with steel and filled with concrete to improve structural stability; or, left unfilled, they provide space for plumbing and electrical wires in internal walls. The air space also delivers improved insulation.

Martin developed his hacienda concept with a deep front garden that sets a roofless concrete blockwork structure back in line with the facades of the neighbouring homes. This structure, which forms a semi-private courtyard, creates much interest from the street and gives the home a brilliant outdoor living space in the sunniest area of the block.
