The World Architecture Day 2019 calls attention to the challenge of how architects can contribute to the realisation of affordable and long-lasting housing for all. To celebrate, we have chosen 3 natural stone projects that stand out for their sustainability and efficiency. Read on to see the stories!
The Natural Stone Council (NSC) has just announced updates to the Natural Stone Sustainability Standard (ANSI/NSC 373) that establishes criteria and methods for tracking, measuring and improving sustainability in the production of natural stone, long regarded for its durability and resiliency.
Stonepanel™ Orient adds a bright look to a traditional house located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic Portobello (Scotland). Our natural stone panels fit in well with elegant Georgian and Victorian architecture.
Gabion walls provide a wide field of environmental applications in contemporary architecture and decoration. Nowadays, they can be used for facades, gardens or urban designs. We have compiled 3 projects that adopt this structural system using natural stone!
Scandinavian design is considered minimalist, with an emphasis on functionality and simple clean lines. CUPA STONE has developed an innovative system that can fit into this design style: Stonepanel™ Nordic. Here’s how you can use our natural stone panels to create a cozy, organic and eco-friendly feel in your home.
Located in Crach, in the French region of Britanny, this bioclimatic house is the habitual residence of a couple and hosting guests. The owners were looking for sobriety and finesse, so they decided to choose our DECOPANEL™ Sylvestre for cladding a large fireplace which organizes the interior design. Let’s have a look at the project!
