Natural metals helped achieve the project goals of authenticity, quality, and sustainability. Zinc enhanced the modern lines of the home on the façade, creating a durable, maintenance-free, sustainable surface. Zinc also provided more depth and richness in appearance. The front façade was designed to create an open inviting appearance while buffering noise and distraction from the busy streetscape. Board foamed cast in place concrete walls and zinc cladding add sophisticated texture to the façade.
The second floor zinc clad cantilevered volume utilizes solid forms focused inward to bedrooms and private spaces. Ascending upward with a glass outlook, the third floor captures rooftop space into a breezy sky filled zone where occupants enjoy the evening skyline and sunset above the fray.
