The clay brick is one of the most used materials, versatile and effective in terms of composition and performance. In particular, a trend followed by designers and architects is that of its use in the outermost layer of the enclosure, which can be interpreted as cladding or “skin” of buildings; in this sense, the clay brick is entrusted not only with the aesthetic role of “facing brick” of the building, but also the functional task of protecting it from atmospheric agents and to collaborate in the internal environmental comfort.
The salient feature of this modernity is also the continuity between roof and wall. Whether they are bricks that propagate in the roof or roof tiles that descend on the vertical walls, the significant datum is the flexible use of the brick in a continuum between horizontal, vertical and oblique surfaces.
Terreal SanMarco presents Cotto³: the innovative system of ventilated brick cladding characterized by the use of terracotta elements as an external cladding.
