natural slate roofing

CUPA PIZARRAS natural slate at La Roche Bernard’s hospital



Valentin Vignard La Roche Bernard’s hospital, designed by the architectural firm Rocheteau Saillard, shows an original use of our natural slate.


The architects sought deliberately to achieve a work of contemporary style.

However, the architects had the desire to keep using slate, traditionally used in roofing.

The combination with other materials, textures and colors, brings out the character of our slate.

The size of individual slates contrasts with the vertical and horizontal lines of the rest of the zinc cladding.

These geometric games emphasize the presence of slate, highlight the versatility of this material and demonstrate slate can be used in any kind of project.
