Charity in the grand style with clay roof tiles

The 3,000 m² residence in Southern Pennsylvania, USA is an impressive example of a high-quality clay roof. A total of 196,000 ceramic tiles were supplied in a three size colour blend.

The owners needed not only a new home, but also one that included suitable accommodation for holding charity events which are a very important part of their life. The house includes a formal reception area, dining room and ball room and in the first three years they have raised close to $3m for charity.

With splendor and grandeur

The family area of the house comprises a large gourmet kitchen, a two-story library finished in antique chestnut. Overlooking the ballroom is a gallery space to exhibit the clients’ extensive art collection. From this level a secret passageway leads through to the second floor of the library. The lower level of the home, usually known as the basement, contains a second larger gallery, a professional grade twenty seat home theatre, a cigar smoking room, and a 15,000 bottle wine cellar with internal fountain. Architects, Olivieri Shousky & Kiss, decided very early in the design process that a house of his size and grandeur needed a roof of similar status and Wienerberger clay roof tiles were their first choice. They fit to the exclusive quality and add to the representative status of the mansion. The finished roof is a testament to all that is terrific about traditional clay roof tiles.
