CUPA PIZARRAS natural slate returns the Ordingen Castle to is original look
The 200 square meters roof of the Ordingen Castle is covered by CUPA natural slate. Located in the province of Limburg (Sint-Truiden, Belgium), our CUPA 4 natural slate was chosen for this project because of its standardized thickness, giving the roof a very even look.
CUPA 4 NATURAL SLATE, A PERFECT CHOICE
CUPA 4 is a blue-black slate with a smooth surface, split to an average thickness of 3.5 and 5mm. It is available in several formats, including rectangular, cut shoulders, fish scale and rounded.
The huge Ordingen Castle roof was restored by our Belgian partners, Geudens Willy.
A NEO FLEMISH RENAISSANCE BUILDING
The Ordingen Castle, built around the 12th century, is being restored. Richard Sleurs bought this Belgian castle in 1997 and he started immediately with the restoration, a work to recover its glorious look. The castle was destroyed during the famous Battle of Brustem. Until the French Revolution, the building was owned by Teutons.
The architects Paul Saintenoy and Josse Schadde remodeled the castle into a beautiful neo Flemish renaissance building.
Our CUPA 4 natural slate helped Ordingen Castle recover its original splendor.
