Minimalist alpine houses with slate roof and facade next to Lake Balaton
A unique roofing and cladding project at Zen Garden Resort in Zánka (Hungary) has chosen CUPA 12 slates for their unique triangular resort homes. The project was done in collaboration with our distributor Tető Horn Kft, located in Hungary.
Just like our slates, every architectural project designed using these slates is unique.
Stylish small houses covered with natural slate
The Zen Garden Resort is in the Hungarian village of Zánka, to the north of Lake Balaton, the largest lake in central Europe. The simple and cosy triangular resort houses are surrounded by nature, an environment that guarantees a relaxing holiday.
Even if at first sight, the shape and arrangement of the houses remind us of camping, these small houses have been designed for ensuring the maximum comfort and are equipped to the standards of a 4-star hotel.
Slate provides a natural look that fits perfectly into the green landscape surrounding the resort. The trees are part of the Zen Garden Resort appeal and natural slate has been naturally integrated. As it is a natural material, slate’s integration into the landscape becomes quite easy.
Roof and facade installation
Two different systems were used to install the slate; hooks for the facade and screws for the roof. From combining the installation methods, the roof looks very uniform in contrast with the subtle metallic details of the facade, fixed with stainless steel clips.
There are 10 slate-clad triangular houses within the resort, which makes approximately 2900m2 of roofing and 1000m2 of cladding.
