Rustic roof tiles
From the series "Roof coverings and accessories - trends 2021"
On the Górka Narodowa estate, in Krakow, the Copper House single-family house project is implemented. The house has been perfectly fitted into an elongated plot of land that rises slightly along the building. The private investor, Mr. Konrad, with the participation of architects from the Krakow office K3, with the support of the company Dachyrustykalne sp. z o.o., made a choice that is crucial to the entire project. The house, thanks to the use of the same material for the facade and roof, looks modern. The project is sure to inspire many architects and investors.

French Élysée tile in the color of Longchamp, produced by Terreal, was chosen for the roof and facade. The tile surrounds the body of the house from the foundations to the ridge, thanks to this treatment the whole building was kept in the same rustic color scheme. On the gable walls, the ceramic tile is cut off with a flashing in the color of the window woodwork. The front gable wall is fully glazed, providing light to the householders. Looking at the house from a distance, one can see the color of the flat French tile, unique to Polish developments, which harmonizes with the graphite flashings of the numerous windows. Keeping a gentle distance, but without losing the view of the whole block, one can see that the roof of the house flows seamlessly into the facade. The Élysée tile resembles a rustic plain tile, but its rectangular form is very interesting and modern, and is increasingly used in Polish projects alternating with its larger counterpart - the Terreal tile in the Giverny model.
The building is characterized by simplicity and elegance. The unusual color scheme is delightful and memorable. Having no equal, it lends exceptional prestige to the residence. The Élysée tile in very warm colors is also a perfect match for the Copper House project in Krakow.

It blends into the surroundings in a non-obvious way, the body of the building is as elegant as it is dignified and not overdone. Despite the sharp edges, the body of the building is consistent and extremely dignified in its simplicity. The obvious solution for pitched roofs is often seamed metal sheets. The departure from this classic solution is extremely successful in this unique project. The residence on Krakow's Górka Narodowa estate already from afar impresses with its unique style, which gives extraordinary color to the entire estate.
