the house of zinc walls
The House Of Zinc Walls is a 4 bedroom 2500 sq.ft. residential interior design project, made up of 4 amalgamated smaller, twin apartments, for a family of 6 in Mumbai. Varying finishes from simple and labour intensive brass and teak wood, to machine produced sophisticated elemental zinc panelling and Italian marbles have all been used in the project, in order to create what was specified by the client to be in essence a modern day, ‘Indian’ home set within a straight-lined and minimal aesthetic.
The apartment is dotted with bespoke pieces that were painstakingly detailed and crafted as a response to the functional requirements set out by the clients.
This project is characterized by a unique zinc wall panelling system intended to unify the shared living, dining and kitchen areas. Zinc Panels meant originally for building exterior cladding were re-appropriated within an interior design context for this purpose.
