Choosing the right facade design and materials is crucial, not only because of its influence in the overall appearance of a project, but also due to its pivotal role in creating an all-around sustainable and efficient building. Slate is a natural material with unmatched durability and performance and will protect the building without losing its colour and features over time.

Developed by Cupa Pizarras' research and development team in collaboration with Danish architects and contractors, Cupaclad systems combine the properties of slate with the thermal efficency and noise and moisture reduction of a ventilated facade.

The Cupaclad range includes options with invisible (Cupaclad 101) and visible fixings (Cupaclad 201). Split House, near Pett in Essex, was designed by Alma-nac Architects with Cupaclad 201 Vanguard. It is a 400m2 family home with a contemporary appearance that contrasts dark natural slate with white paint, adding volume to the fragmented facade. Large windows offer a 360° view of the breathtaking surroundings.

Villa P in Fredericia, Denmark was designed by Nørkær+Poulsen and features Cupaclad 101 Logic. It is a 195m2 private residence that combines slate and wood for a clean and balanced aesthetic. Cupaclad gives the facade a unique character and blends perfectly with its Cupa 12 natural slate roof.

If the standard systems don’t fit your needs, the Cupaclad design and technical office can help you create new and unique facade compositions. From complex shapes to new fixing systems, anything can be achieved in natural slate.
