Screen blocks are decorative blocks--they are not considered structural units and should not be used as such. Screen blocks are often applied in commercial projects for stairwells and parking garages, however, their popularity lies in the residential market for use in property line walls. In these partition walls, the potential of a screen block is maximized: it's open design provides ventilation, partial shading, privacy, and a decorative break in the monotony of the wall's surface. We have seven styles of screen block available, each with a number designation. Our screen blocks are manufactured with coral limestone or a cinder/limestone mixture.

International: Modern Screen blocks still in production:

While most of these are found from manufacturers in the US, we found one manufacturer in Europe (Spain):







Verniprens from Spain: this company seems to have an obsession with mid century modern styled screenblocks.  A good solution for mid century modern lovers in Europe.

Vintage Screen blocks from the 1950s through the 1970s:


Pictured above: Mid Century Modern House with Circle in Square block (No. 171).  Perhaps the most beautiful screen block ever made.  This incredible 1950s block is still in production by the original factory!!! Get it from A-1 Block Corp in Orlando Florida.  Minimum order is one pallet (99 pieces).  Price is very reasonably but the shipping will cost you dearly (but it is soooo worth it).

Pictured below: IBM building by Vladimir Ossipoff 1962:






Mid Century Modern Decorative Concrete Screen
The IBM Building at 1240 Ala Moana Blvd. in Honolulu Hawaii was designed by the famed late mid century modern architect Vladimir Ossipoff. General Growth Properties, which owns the building, has outlined a vision for an urban village that does not include the landmark structure. The most distinctive feature of the building is its concrete grille, which was custom-made and put in place to act as a sunscreen. What Vladimir Ossipoff said about the IBM Building: "The most important point, however, is the character of the building itself. Not only does the systematic, rather repetitious pattern of the concrete grille express the computer-world character of the IBM Corp., but also gives it a sense of belonging in the sun. The deep shadows of the grillwork become as significant a part of the architecture as any part of the structure itself."
