This unique building roof has been updated using our CUPA 12, a thin, flat, smooth surfaced dark grey natural slate.

In order to respect the traditional character of this historical building, the architects chose a combination of two differing slate sizes, 60×35 and 50×25 that provides texture and character yet elegant style.

CUPA 12 comes from one of our 16 quarries , La Campa, situated in Folgoso del Caurel (Lugo, North-West Spain) which is hand split to an average thickness of 5 mm – 6 mm.

Its resistance and durability gives the surface a prestige and magnificence, guaranteeing a far longer service life. The reliability and beauty of CUPA PIZARRAS slate make it the ideal solution for architectural purposes.

There is no other building material with such a lifespan and guarantee

CUPA PIZARRAS extracts a wide range of natural slates from different quarries, available in varying shapes and sizes. Our wide range of products allows you to create functional designs in line with the aesthetics of the surroundings, blending with the local environment and remain unchanged over the years.
