The architectural possibilities with Terreal terra cotta are almost limitless. Terreal’s unique custom capabilities allow an architect to go beyond standard flat panels and add grooves, ribs, chevrons, or curves individually or in combination. At left and below are examples of just some of the possibilities. Contact Terreal for assistance in designing a shape to meet your architectural vision.

 

Corners

Corners can be constructed using preformed terra cotta corners fabricated to specific angles to accommodate the building design. Panels can also be factory mitered or field mitered for a sharper corner. Metal corners can also be used to add additional architectural elements.
