Copper has a great history as a material in architecture. Its distinct bright, brownish/mahogany color morphs to a shocking aqua patina over time. It is typically seen used for roofing, flashing, gutters, domes and more currently, as wall cladding and other custom-designed architectural details.
Copper is a durable and corrosion resistant metal which lends itself well to the hefty jobs of shedding water and enduring centuries. Architects today, with appropriate budgets, have begun to view this century-old material in new and modern ways.
We now see copper as a popular interior application in fixtures and home accessories. While its exterior corrosive-resistant qualities are not as essential for interior purposes, the material is now celebrated for its inherent surface variation, color inconsistencies, and flexibility.
