Golden Mede, an award-winning housing development in the historic village of Waddesdon, used Marley’s Acme Double Camber clay plain tiles to create a striking aesthetic. Made up of 75 homes, the residential project won ‘Best Conceptual Design’ at the 2019 Sustainable Architecture awards.
The roofing element of construction started in 2018, and Marley’s technical team worked closely with the project’s architects, C.F. Moller, to assist with CAD drawings to ensure a suitable build-up and ventilation of the roof.
Over half a million of Marley’s Acme Double Camber tiles in Burnt Flame were used on the Golden Mede development, with the tiles used on the roofs and also applied vertically in order to perfectly complement the project’s Scandinavian-inspired design.
Andrew White, Area Sales Manager at Marley, said: “C.F Moller was clear from the outset on the type of development it wanted to create. Turning away from traditional design, instead favouring an approach which reflected modern living, to deliver a stark contrast against the historic village setting.
“Seeking a crisp, clean look it was therefore important that the roofs of the homes also reflected this vision. Marley’s Acme Double Camber in Burnt Flame was the ideal choice. As it is suitable for vertical applications it was able to deliver a finish which meant the transition from roof to exterior wall was seamless. In addition, the tile was also able to interact with other exterior elements of the build including window reveals, cladding at the gables, and guttering, which was a significant challenge on the build.”
