GPAD London’s design of eight apartments over a doctor’s surgery in Elsdale Street Hackney features VMZINC curved and perforated Sine Wave corrugated cladding in dark ANTHRA-ZINC®.
The art deco building extension, named ‘Zinc House’, is the first project to feature a curved element using zinc in such a profile. Sitting at the convergence of two streets, the use of yellow inset balconies provides visual contrast and distinctiveness while an expanding mesh element of the façade allows natural light to flood into the stairwell.
The VMZINC Sine Wave profile is installed on a ventilated airspace, vertically or horizontally on a wooden or galvanised steel / aluminium framework and is one of the few VMZINC façade systems that utilises visible fasteners.
In addition to ANTHRA-ZINC, it is available in QUARTZ-ZINC®, five standard and bespoke PIGMENTO® colours and AZENGAR, the first engraved zinc to be used in construction.
