A brand new Cupa Pizarras slate roof for the Renfrew Town Hall

If there is one thing that characterizes Scotland and touches all its visitors, that is its natural surroundings and historical buildings, which still retain their original charm. So, as the world leader in natural slate, we are proud that our slates have been chosen to renovate one of these heritage buildings: the Renfrew Town Hall and Museum. THE BEST CHOICE FOR HERITAGE BUILDINGS As part of a refurbishment programme, The Renfrew Town Hall roof has been recently renewed with our natural slate Heavy 3. This slate has been the perfect choice to keep its original appeal of tradition and heritage.

Costa Street - London

London-based architect, WHAT_Architecture has specified CUPA PIZARRAS’ CUPACLAD 101 Logic as the ideal rainscreen cladding system for a new and unusual housing block in Peckham. Crucial to this decision was the system’s ease of installation and its natural aesthetic, which helped the contemporary design to also complement the surrounding and traditional urban landscape. We chose the CUPACLAD 101 Logic as its design layout also reflects that of the brick base, without actually using brick,” said Diana Kulacka, Project Architect from WHAT_Architecture.

Cupaclad rainscreen cladding for the Split House, Essex

Located near Pett in South Essex, this family home combines sustainability with an eye on the future. The house, which has an internal floor area of 400 square metres, was completed in 2014, after a construction period of 18 months. The aim of Alma-nac architects was to create a building that makes the most of its enviable location in the natural environment, offering 360° views. The upper level of the Split House features CUPACLAD® 201 Vanguard, helping to prevent moisture in while enhancing the contemporary look of the house.

Natural slate brings heritage feel to new garden village

When Crest Nicholson began planning its Chertsey regeneration site, it looked to create a neighbourhood with its own unique character, which harmonises perfectly with its surroundings. This led to CUPA PIZARRAS being specified to provide its high quality H18 tiles for the recently launched Upper Longcross development, which forms part of the government-backed Longcross Garden Village. The Upper Longcross site consists of a collection of homes, comprising a mix of two, three, four and five bedroom properties and one and two bedroom apartments.

The Star House

The Star House owes its name to its owner’s house guest, who after having the opportunity to experience the architecture, compared its shape to a star. The project made a great impression on him, so much so, he later asked the architects responsible for the Star House to design one especially for him. The association made by the house guest is justified – the house consists of three volumes, placed radially to one another at different angles. It provides an interesting and rare opportunity to see the exterior facade of the house from the inside.

THERMOSLATE covers nearly 55% of the energy required to heat this house

This family house, located in Chailland (France), has reduced up to 55% its annual energy bills thanks to THERMOSLATE. This solar collector in natural slate covers this family needs for hot water while enhancing the aesthetics and efficiency of their home. Five solar collectors over a total surface of 6.45 square meters, were more than enough to generate the energy required to cover the hot water needs of this family. The main component of the collectors is natural slate, extracted directly from our quarries and specially selected to ensure perfect fit and performance.

This house has reduced its energy consumption thanks to THERMOSLATE

This dwelling is located in a unique natural environment in the French Pyrenees (Gaillagos, France). When designing this family home, the main focus of the owners was to reduce their energy consumption without giving up to an elegant slate roof. That is why they decided to get THERMOSLATE installed: it is a completely invisible solar roof that gets repaid from day one. Only 4 collectors installed on a total surface of 5m2 were enough to cover more than 60% of their hot water needs (250 liters per day).
