Copper and architecture

Copper is used in architecture more and more often. Copper claddings, copper walls, copper roofs…One Belgium atelier – Atelier Vens Vanbelle designed a curving copper-clad extension that was added to a house in Ghent, Belgium. It looks retro-futuristic and surprisingly stylish.


This extension is for accommodating an extra bathroom, bedroom, a new foyer area to minimize a disruption to already established spaces and family routines.

When you look at this house from the outside, it has kind of maritime feel which is accentuated by the domed portholes.


The whole extension is covered with copper panels and supported by a copper-clad wall. More about this architectural design
