VMZINC corrugated façade for Hackney apartments


GPAD London’s design of eight apartments over a doctor’s surgery in Elsdale Street Hackney features VMZINC curved and perforated Sine Wave cladding in dark ANTHRA-ZINC®.

The art deco building extension has been named ‘Zinc House’ and 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 gives added visual distinctiveness to the project. An expanding mesh element of the façade also allows natural light to flood into the stairwell. The Sine Wave zinc has a corrugated profile and can be fixed either vertically or horizontally on a wooden or metal framework. 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.
