Perforated metal can be matched with just about any material – wood, brick, glass or any other metal. Perforated metal brings out the best qualities of its material partners. Just take a look at these ultra-fashionable interior and exterior ensembles that pair perforated metal with various materials.

Perforated metal and glass: Espace Culturel de la Hague by Peripheriques Architectes

Located in Beaumont-Hague, this cultural space designed by Peripheriques Architectes features a striking on-trend red perforated metal façade that pairs beautifully with the building’s extensive use of glass and mirrors. While the facade’s reflection and transparency give a glimpse of the activities inside, the perforated metal acts as an acoustic baffle for the venue’s performances.

Perforated metal and wood: Creuse House by M Architects

An unassuming white exterior conceals the perforated metal design on this narrow, three-storey townhouse in Schaerbeek. Creuse House’s renovation by M Architects uses white perforated metal with other materials, including wood, aluminium and laminate. The perforated metal screen features a fun design with holes of varying diameters, and offers an innovative way to focus on the home’s different areas at low-cost.
