VM Anthra zinc on Lewes, Sussex new-build
A new-build house on a brown-field site in Lewes, Sussex. The house has three roofs, all clad in Anthra zinc, which is not painted but chemically treated to produce its charcoal black finish.
The roofs are ventilated, with close boarding under the zinc. We include here a picture of the porch – we custom-made a downpipe here as the client felt that the standard size would be disproportionately big so near to the front door.
