The facades mainly consist of terracotta rainscreen. Light-beige terracotta panels are extensively used to make the conventional buildings radiating elegance and gentleness. This feature is also in line with hospital buildings with intended purposes of serving mainly women and children.
The exterior wall materials are dry-hanging terracotta panels, hidden frame glass curtain wall, and vacuum-insulated glass. The facades are divided by creamy-white terracotta panels and charcoal-gray terracotta panels into large-sized sections of different colors, so that the facades look simplistic and integral.
Fangu Villas in the Jinlin Compound2017-03-07
Without an intriguing design, Fangu villas make full use of the terrain features to be serene. The villas’ external walls feature a mixed use of terracotta bricks and panels that are both made of natural clay, creating the harmonious unity with the natural surroundings.
When designing terracotta external walls, the architectural designers take full consideration of the rules for using colors so that the buildings will have unique external wall colors. The most frequently used method to design and apply colors is to collocate terracotta panels of the same color category.

Dimensions of LOPO Terracotta Tiles2017-01-13
In designing an elevation of a building, the designers often have to choose terracotta tiles of different dimensions based on the structures and appearance of the elevation. LOPO terracotta tiles are normally 150mm-800mm wide and 250mm-1500mm long (as is shown in the picture below), but are also available in special dimensions.

A LOPO terracotta panel is made of the same material both in its surface layers and internal layers, so that the color is consistent throughout the entire panel, except for glazed panels or other panels that have special finishing.
This university project has recently finished construction and commenced operation. As a masterpiece representing China’s campus architecture design, this project highlights a unique design -- “slender red brick curtain wall”.
As a decorative material for external walls, terracotta panel is constantly explored by architectural designers for its aesthetic potential when applied to a building's facade. The design effects are achieved not only through various patterns (such as surface, shape, color)of the terracotta panels, but also through various installation methods, including horizontal, vertical, beveled, split-leveled, and overlapped installations.
This project is one of the high-end residential projects developed by Evergrande Group, a famous Chinese real estate developer. Conveniently located in the only peninsula area bordered by Xiang river, Liuyang River and Laodao River.
LOPO Solid Ceramic Elements2016-09-26
Different from LOPO’s Terracotta Façade with hollow chamber cross-section, LOPO’s Solid Ceramic Tile (also known as Light Ceramic Plate) is solid and light, with its thickness less than 15mm. This kind of tile is less weight-burden on the wall structure and can be flexibly cut to the desired length and width, and into special shapes as required by the architectural design.
Advantages of clay facing bricks2016-09-03
Clay Facing Bricks, also called Vertically Perforated Bricks, refer to bricks that are made from clay and used as both furnishing and load-bearing body of the building’s walls. These bricks are in rectangular (standard) form or irregular (auxiliary) form.
Terracotta panels are calcined at high temperature from wet-extruded natural clay. The surface of curtain wall is anti-static so that it is not easy to gather dust. Generally, the rain washes off the dust from the terracotta panel surface. So the expenses for cleaning and maintenance of terracotta curtain walls are low, especially for high-rising buildings. However, the following things should be considered in order to keep and show the best visual effect for terracotta curtain walls.
