LADDING WITH SPACED SLABS FOR VERTICAL WALLS
The charm of the grey material characteristic of Ligurian architecture, in particular because of its chromatism, is a pleasant result achieved from a product of nature (slate) and man’s craft (from design to installation) so that the dualism arising from it can join architecture and design in a challenge that will last throughout time.
This type of cladding, widespread in other European countries, especially in France, is particularly pleasing to the eye (as well as being more economic than other types) for the play of colours that are created as the light reflected on it changes.
The façades of buildings clad this way change over the span of a day, as the direction of the sun’s rays changes, creating surprising designs.
