The French seaside town of Damgan in French Brittany is a tourist destination famed for its proximity to the Vilaine Estuary. The Les Palmiers development designed by Agency Anima Architects is comprised of 12 holiday homes and was completed in 2017. The architects were looking for a durable, natural material that could add a sense of warmth and dynamism to the façade while maintaining a sleek, unfussy, contemporary style.
Cupaclad® 101 Random from Cupa Pizarras was selected and has been used in three formats to create a dynamic façade while preserving the homogeneity of the whole development. The invisible fixings of the Cupaclad® 101 Random emphasize the clean horizontal lines of the façade in a striking mix of contemporary styling and traditional materials. The durability of the slate cladding made it the ideal choice for this seaside location.
