Think Zinc

During the construction of the pigmented zinc facade for Alex Monroe Studio, DSDHA visited the site at 37 Snowsfields to learn about the art of bespoke zinc facade fabrication.

The specialist zinc craftsman on site introduced the studio to the process of cutting, folding, and installing the complex profiled pigmented zinc facade panels at 37 Snowsfields. The team was fascinated by the specialist folding bed, cutting tools, and calibrator that the fabrication process needs. It was inspiring for the everyone to find out that the hand manipulation still plays a huge part in the fabrication process as each panel is folded, pressed and cut by hand, imbuing the facade with a sense of fine craftsmanship.
