Recently we installed a cupola onto the roof of a customer’s home. A cupola is a piece of architecture that is placed on top of a home or other type of building. Sometimes they serve as a lookout or to allow air or light into a space. In this case the cupola was added for the beauty of its architecture.
The copula can be created in many different styles and colors to suit any design esthetic. This one was made of an untreated copper. The customer requested this so he could enjoy watching the patina change over time. This particular home had three installed, one larger piece for the longest part of their roof and two smaller pieces for the turrets. Adding these to the home gives it a unique and stately appearance. The end result was beautiful!
