FAÇADE SKIN

WHAT
These tiles are designed to cover entire buildings — roofs and walls alike. Next to a visual makeover, they also offer a solution for damp walls: the curved shape allows a natural flow of air below them, and the glazed surface effectively directs the rain down.

WHY
It is time for a renewal of ornamental architecture, says Freek Peters. Inspired by the Amsterdam School style, with roof tiles on the upper part of outer walls, he expands their range even further.

WHY
The look may be something else, but the material and production process are age-old. The tiles are made at the Wienerberger ceramic factory in Peter’s home village of Tegelen (which happens to be Dutch for ‘to tile’).

QUOTE
Tiles that fit your house like the feathers of a bird.
