At the heart of the cruciform plan is the hallway and it was a challenge to make this space feel dramatic and connect it with the rest of the home. In addition, positioning the glazing carefully to frame the views was a challenge.

One of the Client’s requirements was to use render so we worked with this by adding a rustic style brick and stone copings. The slate added a striking and sharp look with a traditional feel to the roof and the aluminiumwindows worked well with the large openings.

CUPA 2 natural slate completes Smithy Cottage

Cupa Pizarras as Roofing slate supplier

CUPA PIZARRAS have provided their CUPA 2 spanish slate for Smithy Cottage, a beautiful new-build property in Warrington designed by Fasciato Architects.

Ian Scullion, Associate at Fasciato Architects said: 

“We decided to use a natural slate for the roofing material to achieve a balance with the brief whilst also making the house feel homely and appropriate to its context.”

RWJ Roofing explained:

“The CUPA PIZARRAS slates were excellent to install as the thickness of the slates were exceptionally even, simplifing and minimising the amount of grading required in the run up to the installation of the slate.”

Caption

CUPA 2 is a dark grey, non-carbonated slate with thin laminations and a smooth surface, formed by tectonic compression and quarried from CUPA PIZARRAS’ Riodolas mine in northern Spain.
