Copper is such an amazing material! That’s what we believe here at Shanghai Metal Corporation. And what we very much like about copper is its versatility and adaptability to different purposes. We have already discussed in this blog about container houses, but today we are willing to go beyond this topic showing you the latest news about copper houses!
The well-known architecture and design blog archdaily.com published an article on a very interesting project realized in Chondi, India. The house that you can see in the photos below features unique copper components. Here is how archdaily.com described the project designed by Studio Mumbai.
“The walls are finished in a celadon-coloured traditional plaster, smooth like human skin, and crackled like the ancient Chinese glaze, giving the transitory appearance of a fragmented ceramic container, rectilinear and encased with a lid of weathered copper. The continuous copper roof plane forms a secondary datum for the house, becoming a surface of potential occupation and cover.”

From India we move now to Australia. The photos below show the project created by Takt | Studio for Architecture. Infolink website explains that this unique house is composed by three pavilions featuring copper.
“The pavilions are constructed in structural steel, feature hand waxed concrete flooring and are all clad in copper that came from KFC Roofing Supplies situated in Sydney. Copper was chosen by Takt in response to the coastal location and the effect the salty and humid atmosphere has on surfaces. The architects say the material has already developed a patina that will only improve with age.”
