Good to see you make your first post on Workshop. I trust the community will have some good advice for you. Feel free to post again anytime you need a hand with a project. We have many community members who are happy to share their knowledge and experience.
You sure it needs treatment? Brick can be very beautiful.
But if you are determined to change it, consider just painting the brick directly. Much easier than rendering and depending on the brick, the texture can look amazing.
I would advise against using blueboard. It cracks on the joins. See this post for what's happened at our place with rendered blueboard - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Outdoor-Living/Can-you-patch-render/m-p/11936
You've mentioned render and blueboard.
What about covering it in a creeper or some shelving with hanging plants? Au naturale
Excellent suggestion from @ProjectPete.
