The Prestige tile from Matthew Hebden was chosen to create a dramatic feature for the Imola development.
The tile was chosen because the copper added beauty and prestige to the project and provides continuing interest as it weathers to the eventual beautiful green patina.
Normally installed with a copper clip covering the butt joint between the tiles, the architect wanted to produce a ribbed effect and so extra copper clips were used to produce the continuous ribs. These provided a strong visual vertical to offset the normal horizontal of the tile courses. However the architect in this case wanted the tiles installed on the diagonal to provide a vertical movement.
The dramatic feature of this retail development is this 65m high curved wall clad in the copper tile.
