Four Lane Ends
Sparta Cladding with CUPA PIZARRAS
Architect Jon Moorhouse and his wife purchased a derelict bungalow in Tarporley with aspirations to keep the original eco-friendly design but bring it into the 21st century. As such, a second storey was added to the existing building and the exterior was redesigned using a recycled steel substructure, Staffordshire bricks and local green oak for parts of the cladding. Throughout the project, emphasis was placed on sourcing the highest quality materials that would blend in with the surrounding rural landscape while maintaining a contemporary design.
To this endeavor, Jon sought a natural slate cladding system for the rest of the façade. He came across CUPACLAD® slate rainscreen cladding and reached out to CUPA PIZARRAS. The team visited Jon’s architectural practice to present a CPD and discuss the project. It was soon decided that CUPACLAD® would be ideal as it could achieve all the aesthetic and sustainability requirements. Fully BBA approved, CUPACLAD 201 Vanguard is 100% non-combustible, with an A1 fire-rating, and offers a lifespan of over 100 years.
