Modern Refuge Surrounded by Lush Forests in Ohio: The Zinc House

 

 

Situated on 1.4 acres of a┬áprivate, wooded land in the sought after┬áSycamore School District, Ohio, USA this custom built┬ácontemporary home, dubbed┬áThe Zinc┬áHouse, is set in its own private sanctuary,┬ábasking in the crisp wooded views from┬áevery turn. The home is ideal for every day┬áfamily living, yet is an entertainerÔÇÖs mecca.┬áThe Zen outdoor space includes a modern┬ápool and a built in fire pit.

Walls were envisioned in architectural zinc, which develops its own protective layer called zinc hydroxyl-carbonate. Once itÔÇÖs formed, that layer blocks moisture and chemicals from penetrating the zinc and, if itÔÇÖs scratched, the hydroxyl-carbonate will reform over time. In other words, zinc heals itself. ThatÔÇÖs why zinc walls and roofs last on average from 80 to 100 years. Inside, this 6,200 square foot home is┬áfinished with glistening heated┬áconcrete floors and unique stainless┬ásteel countertops. Every window┬áhas been designed to capture the┬ápicturesque landscape outside. If┬ájust looking isnÔÇÖt enough, then┬áopening the sliding wall system┬áensures that you can let the┬áoutdoors in.
