Architectural Focus: Using Brass Cladding and Brass Tubing for Facades


During the 90’s, brass was largely forgotten; the minimalism of chrome and aluminum made these the metals of note for this period. Halfway through the 2010s, however, the bygone vintage years became an intense source of inspiration for many. Because of this, brass experienced a resurgence in the field of design, from engraving brass to large-scale industrial uses. Architects were right in the forefront of this brass renaissance.

Brass in Architecture

A growing number of architects are selecting brass as their top cladding material. Two popular reasons – its excellent weathering qualities and elegant, golden luster – are frequently cited. In London, for instance, you’ll find what’s dubbed as “Cadbury’s Crunchie.” It’s a sixties apartment refurbished by Make Architects. If you’re walking along the street, you might not immediately notice anything special in its façade.
