Designed by DCL Architecture, and completed in 2017, this multi-residential development in the Quantinière quarter, in Trélazé is comprised of 90 apartments over 4 individual blocks. The area where the buildings are located is close to the Unesco Heritage City of Angers, elevating the importance of the design of the contemporary building in such a context.
The architects chose to use natural slate cladding for both the roof and the wall cladding. The Cupaclad® 101 Random from Cupa Pizarras was chosen for the wall cladding for its technical performance and the dynamic, contemporary styling of the random slate surface.
About Cupaclad 101 Random
The Cupaclad® 101 Random system is part of the Cupaclad® 101 series, made up of systems with invisible fixings that make Cupa Pizarras’ natural slate the main attraction of a facade.
The Cupaclad® 101 Random rainscreen cladding system is synonymous with creativity and gives any facade an original design that makes the most of the flexibility and natural durability of slate. Natural slate is a unique product that lasts more than 100 years, which makes it the ideal material for any type of facade.
Cupaclad® systems have been specially designed to adapt the slate in the new design trends, which look for more ecological and sustainable solutions.
