What Is Breeze Block?

Iconic to mid-century style — cue 1970s Palm Springs — breeze blocks are ruddy-hued clay tiles that typically feature bold, geometric patterns. They are a gorgeous architectural and textural element of design.

Many designers and homeowners use breeze blocks outdoors because they offer practical benefits, like diffusing sunlight and allowing for airflow and ventilation while providing seclusion and privacy. You can also use breeze blocks indoors to add unique flavor.
