Walmer yard forms a discreet and private set of four interlocking houses, the building was designed by world-renowned architect Peter Salter and is his first residential development. Roles Broderick were chosen to develop and install the Copper clad yurts to the building. The cladding comprises a natural copper formed in diamond shingle tiles made on site to fit the complex geometric shape of the Yurts. Traditional long strip techniques were used for the roof elements and separated from the tile cladding by a bespoke eaves details that delineated the roof from the wall. The project required a close interaction between the Roles Broderick team and the architect to achieve the bespoke pattern and lines that were required. The roofing package also included bespoke Copper rainwater goods and Terne Coated Stainless Steel capping details.
