Context

A striking zero carbon family home in Belgium has been clad entirely in Acme and Hawkins Single Camber Clay Plain Tiles from Marley to give character to the minimalist design.

Project details

Award-winning low carbon architects BLAF specified Marley Eternit’s Acme and Hawkins single camber plain clay tiles in grey blue and red for this self build, zero carbon family home in Sint-Amendsberg, Belgium.

The timber framed passive house had to meet strict planning requirements which dictated that facades should be made of brick. After discussions, Marley Eternit clay tiles were approved with local planners. These gave a similar appearance but also met technical and sustainability requirements, including the provision of additional space from a thinner wall, allowing for improved insulation and a greater living area. Using the same material gave a consistent finish for the roof and facade, and simplified the build process.

Outcome

The result is a striking, contemporary, zero carbon property, clad entirely in natural clay plain tiles to give added texture and character to the clean lines of the design.
