Another amazing house design will be featured today. Instead of using the usual concrete or wood finish, this house has Zinc exterior. The Zinc House uses Dri-Design VM Zinc panels. Architectural zinc has a unique characteristic. It has a protective layer called zinc hydroxyl-carbonate which blocks moisture and chemicals to penetrate the zinc. The hydroxyl-carbonate element in it reforms through time which means that the zinc can heal itself when scratched making it last for about 80 to 100 years. Aside from those features mentioned, it is also visually appealing since it emulates the colors from nature. The 6,200 square feet Zinc House is located in Ohio and designed by Jose Garcia. It has glistening heated concrete floors and stainless steel countertops. It also has a sliding wall system that allows the homeowners to get a better view of the outdoor beauty. It has an industrial modern look not just for the exterior but also for the interior. But even if it has an industrial design, the interior is filled with lots of colors. Take a look at the home below:
Glass windows and walls surround the house letting the outdoor beauty in. The use of glass compliments well with the zinc panel.
