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

Situated on 1.4 acres of a private, wooded land inside the sought after Sycamore School District, Ohio, USA this tradition built contemporary home, dubbed

Walls were envisioned in architectural zinc, which develops its own protective layer called zinc hydroxyl-carbonate. Once it’s formed, that layer blocks moisture and chemicals from penetrating the zinc and, if it’s scratched, the hydroxyl-carbonate will reform through the years. In other words, zinc heals itself. That’s why zinc walls and roofs last on average from 80 to 100 years. Inside, this 6,200 square foot home is finished with glistening heated concrete floors and unique stainless steel countertops. Every window has been designed to capture the picturesque landscape outside. If just looking isn’t enough, then opening the sliding wall system ensures for you to let the outdoors in.
