Pigmento Red VMZINC on £5.5m Cambridge housing development

Standing seam roofs and rainwater goods in VMZINC PIGMENTO® Red have been used in Once Architecture’s design of four modern, five bedroom homes in Spens Avenue Cambridge. A stepped construction was used to correspond with the established building line while the two-and-a-half storey units have living areas on the first floor to take advantage of views over open land. Specification of sustainable materials was a key factor in the £5.5m brownfield development and the subtle pre-weathered shade of red will be retained through zinc’s natural patination. The tone and surface texture are unlike that of any other metal and complement a diverse range of building materials.
