Rewarding Nordic Copper ..

The Windermere Jetty Museum – recently shortlisted for the 2021 RIBA Stirling Prize – is unified and defined by facades and oversailing roofs clad in Nordic Brown pre-oxidised copper from Aurubis. Nordic Brown pre-oxidised copper is used as the determining material to give architectural consistency to these elements and to the museum buildings working together as a cohesive whole.

The copper is folded and pinned with a regular pattern of brass fixings to give the elevations a unique texture, which is further reinforced by the patina developing naturally over time and responding to the unique lakeside context. Nordic Brown provides the same oxidised surface that otherwise develops over time in the environment, with darker or lighter (Nordic Brown Light) shades of brown.
