  2. 2. Our Archizinc Trophy competition is be- coming increasingly international with each new edition. This year’s competition boasted 116 projects from 20 countries. Our company’s legitimacy to promote Architecture and organise such a competi- tion is rooted in our long and varied history. Our original brand, Vieille Montagne, now VMZINC® , is culturally linked with the ar- chitecture of cast iron and glass at the end of the 19th century. Certain cult buildings of that period contribute to the grey-blue color that characterises the Parisian roofscape. The close relationship between VMZINC® and the architects who designed those magnificent forms and decorative ele- ments has gone from strength to strength over more than 175 years. Today we still work with the world’s leading architects, who in turn enhance the image of our ma- terial and its applications. Rem Koolhaas in Japan; Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron in Switzerland; Paul Andreu, Maxi- miliano Fuksas and Renzo Piano in France; Zaha Hadid in Spain - to mention but a few who have used our material distinctively in prestigious projects. Zinc has always been an architectural choice, for aesthetic or technical reasons, and often for both! Today it is also becom- ing an environmental choice, which is why we were particularly attentive when awarding the special prize for the most sustainable building based on its official certification. We would like to thank all the architects who have received awards in their cate- gory for their trust in our range of products and services. This new issue of our maga- zine showcases remarkable buildings that I invite you to discover in the following pages.

Prior to the restoration work, this site was occupied by a family house: a large dwell- ing with no particular architectural qualities, except perhaps the picturesque charm of its extensions, which were built when needed, without any restrictions to space or vicinity. When architect Dirk de Meyer took on the res- toration of this unusual mix of constructions, there was nothing more than an empty shell with no windows. It is difficult to imagine that this near ruin could become the fine zinc-clad house now situated on the site. The architect mainly used the existing structures to de- velop his project, which involved dividing the original house into three separate apartments providing a sustainable housing solution for young couples or families seeking to live close to nature but not far from the city centre. Dirk de Meyer treated the existing volume like a block, which he excavated, rectified and corrected to obtain more contemporary forms while re-using the existing brickwork. Three duplex apartments were created inside the envelope, together with a communal entrance and terraces. A dark grey zinc cladding was installed in standing seam on particle board, covering the externally-mounted insulation needed to enhance thermal performance. This zinc envelope covers the entire building from top to bottom. Particular attention was given to complex features: facade base, box gutters, facade-roof trim… numerous elegant details revealing the technical expertise involved in designing these finishing touches and the skillful adjustment work carried out during installation.

  10. 10. 8 | HABITAT INDIVIDUEL| LAURéAt TROPHéE ARCHIZINC N°4 | l agraphé The small town of Roeselare, in Flemish Bel- gium, has a population of just 60,000 but has a certain buzz to it because it is part of the Lille Metropolitan Area that extends beyond the French border and which has an over- all population of almost four million people. Roulers, which was founded in the Middle Ages, recently launched a series of projects that will be completed in the short and medi- um term: new public facilities, improvement of public transport, electronically managed car parking, an academy, parks, libraries, etc. New housing projects are also included in this dynamic urban renewal project. The Bouckaert house, designed by architects Bernard Declerck and Griet Daels (DECLERCK- DAELS Architecten), was built on the site of an old warehouse at the heart of a huge urban site. The house, which is modest compared to the neighbouring, occupies a significant por- tion of the plot. The project looks like a block of bricks, made up of an apartment upstairs and a garage downstairs plus an entrance to a second house in the courtyard, belonging to the client’s daughter. In the period between the design phase and delivery of the building, this unclaimed sector of the town was com- pletely renewed, with the construction of a seven-storey library and apartment buildings on the periphery of the site. This one-storey private house became a focal point for the entire neighbourhood, which made the roof a vital element of the project. The architects wanted to treat it like a “fifth facade” for the entire site, especially for the view from the library directly opposite. They originally envisaged a green roof, but opted instead for a zinc roof, which they considered The fifth facade Photos: Bernard Declerck, Sarah Vandepitte and Fabien Devaert.Individual Housing Bouckaert private house, roeselare (Belgium) Architect: Bernard Declerck - DecLerck-DAeLS Architecten Technique: VMZ Standing seam Aspect: AnThrA-Zinc® Surface in zinc: 125 m2

The standing seam tech- nique made it possible to create clear lines highlighting the large trapezoidal skylight and also made work on the complex details of the box gutters easier. The line of the gutters cre- ates a frame for the roof, making it look like a carefully drawn work of abstract art. ARCHIZINC TROPHY N°6 |

Drawing: nOMADe Architectes. After the Second World War, France attempted to solve its housing problems by industrialis- ing construction. In the space of a few years, new methods using prefabricated concrete made it possible to construct hundreds of thousands of housing units in a few decades. The architecture of the period gave France the long low-rise projects and spectacular towers that make up the large housing developments that are currently much disparaged. The “Tchécoslovaquie” building is one such low- rise apartment project situated in the aera of Nantes Malakoff that is highly symbolic of the period. It is 100 metres long and houses 176 apartments on ten floors. It is unusual in that it is not straight but built in a long curve that dynamizes the volume which otherwise could have appeared massive and static. The NOMADE studio worked on the building as part of a rehabilitation project to bring it in line with thermal standards. Although exter- nal thermal insulation is very common (these technologies were already used in the 1980s on this type of building), this is a first for zinc cladding on such a scale. The architects used three layout grids with a width of 23, 33 and 43 cm respectively in two different colours: QUARTZ-ZINC® and PIGMENTO® Green. The layout consists of layers that create broken lines and relief effects on the facade, accen- tuating the curve of the building. The seem-
  15. 15. 13 | WinneR ARCHIZINC TROPHY N°6 || COLLECTIVE HOUSING ingly arbitrary aspect of the cladding belies a rigorous design that required computer- ized modelling of over 7,500 elements. The malleability of zinc made it easy to resolve problems around penetrations on the facade. This flexibility, together with the lifespan of the material (which will last fifty years as opposed to twenty for other products), “makes zinc an option that is not more expen- sive than other materials” say the architects.

The lavish winegrowers’ villas around the vil- lage are the last remaining traces of this once thriving activity that reached its peak in 1961, before the customs agreements of 1962 and the oil crises which were the death blow. During the boom years, no less than 11 mil- lion tons of grapes were produced in 35,000 glasshouses, which made Hoeilaart look like a glass village. A handful of glasshouses are the only remaining evidence of this winegrowing Eldorado, the majority having been destroyed to make room for countryside housing in an area close to Brussels. With their “Den Travoo” project, architects BOGDAN & VAN BROECK wanted to recon- nect with this vanished past. This 41-unit pro- gramme including 12 social housing units in the centre of Hoeilaart was built according to a Public-Private Partnerships procedure. The symbol of the glasshouse, transcribed by zinc on the roofs and facades, is combined here with the archetype of the greenhouse. The joints of the zinc cladding installed on the entire envelope replicate the architecture of glasshouses, while the double-sloped saw- tooth roofs unite the stacked dwellings in one volume, unlike juxtaposed rowhouses. The main reference remains the glasshouses, aligning both the roof's highest and lowest points as well as the openings with the verti- cal zinc lanes, up to and including the colour of the bilacquered zinc, which is a reminder of the summer periods when the glass panels would be whitened to limit overheating.

The partition and facade walls were built in cellular con- crete blocks and the floors are concrete. The zinc roof was installed directly onto structural insulating box beams installed on the outer walls and roof ridge, to create a load-bearing origami-roof. This volume eliminated the need for a timber roof frame and provides residents on the upper floors with exceptional volumes.

In both towns, disused industrial sites on the river banks left room for public spaces and housing developments. The “Carré en Seine” develop- ment in Issy-les-Moulineaux is one of these new programmes. 65 private housing units and a hotel now occupy this previously abandoned industrial wasteland, forming a compact site di- vided into three blocks, a volumetric translation of the requirements of the local urban planning programme, given that density was one of the environmental criteria set by the municipality. All the blocks in the programme were built using prefabricated concrete walls incorporat- ing insulation, which are not usually used on this scale. Smooth and streamlined, the light coloured concrete envelope is deliberately aus- tere. In the housing sections, the apartments are flanked on both sides by zinc boxes stacked up like small containers. They are mounted on an independent structure to avoid creating thermal bridges. Each apartment has one of these elements designed as additional outside rooms. “In this dense context, we had to in- vent a system of walls that would optimise the window view from the apartments” explains Jean-Baptiste Pietri, the project architect. “The metal framework supporting these spaces incited us to use metal.

It is installed on a wooden substructure that gives a pleasant finish inside the balconies. Another benefit is the numerous flashing possibilities thanks to its malleability and the skilled installers, who proposed a broad range of details on site. Although the boxes did raise a few problems for the zinc workers” admits Jean-Baptiste Pietri, revealing one last reason for choosing zinc: “I like my buildings to be localized.

Architekten Stadtplaner BDA Technique: VMZ Tiles Aspect: PiGMenTO® Blue Surface in zinc: 440 m2 Dortmund architects studio SCHAMP & SCHMALÖER was selected in 2010 to design a reading room on the roof terrace of the uni- versity library in Wuppertal. This roof extension posed a potential risk of overload for the foun- dations, so the calculation of static loads was particularly rigorous. In order to minimize the weight and at the same time ensure optimum stability, the architects opted in the end for a round structure with a 26 metre diameter and approximately 600 m² of floor space, built on steel beams that evenly distribute loads. The facade is clad with zinc scales that are reminiscent of the slate clad houses of the region, and whose variations in colour blend well with the grey concrete of the existing buildings, which were constructed in the 1970s. The huge window in the reading room over- looks life on the campus and, in the distance, the entire city. The sun-shields in vertical alu- minium strips give an energetic structure to the facade. The reading room is six metres high and fea- tures two-storey glass cylinders. The lower part of these can be used as meeting rooms, while the upper sections are laid out as more infor- mal meeting areas. Other spaces are designed to host small groups for revisions or event preparations. The ceiling is perforated with coloured sky-domes allowing daylight into the central sections of the reading room. The interior layout is in keeping with the cylin- drical design of the building, with a contempo- rary architecture that creates a studious atmos- phere while at the same time enhancing the site of the university.

Located on the rue de Béteille, a busy street below the historic centre of the former capital of the Rouergue region, the building is imme- diately recognisable by its two parallelepi- pedic volumes. It is positioned on a street of residential buildings from various periods with various heights. Jacques Lacombe and Michel de Florinier created a sculptural style that strengthens the public status of the build- ing while compensating for the differences in height between the two adjoining volumes (varying from 2 storey to 4 storey) and for the slope of the street. This fragmentation made it possible to allow natural light to enter the site, while at the same time creating fissures and perforations that give depth to the street space. The structure, which features large spans and two overhangs over the public space, is made of steel. The architects chose preweathered zinc for the envelope rather than lacquered steel, which they considered would be less durable.

What is the best way to approach building next to a world famous monument as iconic as Stonehenge, which today could be perceived as Land-Art but was actually built between 2,800 and 1,100 B.C.? The new building designed by architects firm Denton Corker Marshall offers a proud welcome to visitors coming to admire the megaliths. One million visitors are expected every year. Although the visitor center is almost two kilo- metres from the circular enclosure of granite, the question of its integration was crucial: other, less important monolithic monuments border the World Heritage site around a con- struction-free plain where any new building would be very noticeable. Furthermore, the A344, a road passing near the stone circle was in fact removed in the sense of wilder- ness and timelessness of the site. The building does not intend to compete with the monument. A slim, slightly veiled roof covers three pods housing the ticket office, a shop, café and exhibition area. The roof melts into the horizon as visitors approach the meg- alithic circle. It is supported by 200 slender columns that contrast sharply with the power- ful mass of the stones, and are less than eight metres high, which is lower than the height of the cromlech. Unlike the eternal granite menhirs, the visitor centre was designed to be disassembled and to leave the least pos- sible trace on the site. It was constructed on a large concrete raft foundation to minimize excavations. The columns and roofing can be disassembled and preference was given to recyclable materials.

Although renovation is often perceived as a less creative branch of architecture, it is actually an area that provides opportunities for incredible metamorphoses. The Makro warehouses in Madrid are a spectacular example of this. The original building was a large urban warehouse with opaque facades, a sort of post-modern prefabricated concrete mastaba adjoining the Mahou brewery situated on the neighbouring four-hectare plot. The brewery was demolished to leave way for a significant complex includ- ing a park and apartment buildings*. Barely ten months after the architects first visited the site, the warehouse is now a modern building with glass facades overlooking the city. The new owner of the building is a food whole- sale chain that wanted to acquire offices in a neighbourhood of Madrid where restaurants are plentiful. The programme includes a shop, car park and offices. More accustomed to properties on the outskirts of the city, Makro is testing a new type of city centre business on this site. The project designed by Bardají y Asociados began by stripping away the cladding of the original building: the facade panels were removed, a double-height space was created on the ground floor and shafts were created to allow natural light into the thick volume of the former warehouse. The architects had already used zinc to renovate a large department store in Madrid**, where the material gave a sense of unity to a set of disparate buildings. In this case, zinc is used less on the envelope than in the volume. As vertical sun-shields, it gives the building aFor more information on this project... >

This skyline that would be worthy of New York was created in less than twenty years, generating a property boom that had its part to play in the creation of the Greenland Clubhouse by the architects at the recently established Chinese architec- tural firm Pure Architecture. This small pavilion was initially used as a sales office for a new property development before becoming a restaurant. Its architecture is far removed from standardised construction and has the look of an inhabited sculpture. The folds of its roof create facets that replicate the mountain slopes. The roof follows a counter slope that provides an open view in front of the building and ends against a vertical glass facade that makes the pavilion visible from the river, providing the dialogue intended by the architect. The Layout was designed to minimize the visual impact of the building. The steepness of the plot makes the restau- rant below entrance level invisible from the street, and offers a basement with a glass facade overlooking a garden.

For the moment, it stands alone like a sculpture at the edge of a field. By simplifying the overall form to accentuate the details, the architects wanted to make the building a strong signal anticipating the forthcoming urbanisation of the site. The centre seems like a block that is lifted from the ground by its transparent base. Seen from a distance, the building appears to be a compact mass, an effect that is ac- centuated by using a dark material such as ANTHRA-ZINC® . This perception changes on approaching the building. Overhanging boxes with varying dimensions protrude from the facade, playing with the light and offering patients generous views of the surrounding countryside. Behind these windows are the various specialities practised in this medical building. A play on scale between the main and secondary volumes is highlighted by the use of two different colours of preweathered zinc (ANTHRA-ZINC® and QUARTZ-ZINC® ), a ma- terial chosen for its durability, its elegance and its capacity to create a complex set of graphic textures.

The municipality chose this plot on the edge of the Boisé forest, a large wooded area that is gradually being urban- ised, for the construction of a centre including a 3,000 m2 multimedia library, an exhibition centre and a museums reservation. The loca- tion of the facility created a challenge for the architects, Cardinal Hardy/Labonté Marcil/éric Pelletier Architectes en consortium: preserving the permeability between two entities of- ten presented as antagonistic - the city and nature - became the project priority. Several strategies were led simultaneously to achieve this goal. Initially, building was concentrated on a strip of land to avoid sprawl. It is no longer a block but a sort of landscape-building that people can pass through. A passage with access to the forest crosses through the cen- tral part of the building. It forms an artificial hill that the visitor can reach via a ramp and leave on a footbridge. The diversity of materials differentiates the various parts of the programme, which are spread out in several clearly identified blocks. The entrance is located in a protruding glass volume that is visible from a distance. The centrepiece remains the multimedia library and its main level in glass, through which the trees are visible. Sculptural roofing covers the reading rooms. This is more than just a roof, it is a thick volume with a metal structure of suspended layers clad in zinc on the outside and wood on the underside. Its varying heights define intimate spaces or larger rooms.

The material was also evaluated as the most sustainable and was a pertinent choice for this project which aimed to obtain LEED* Gold certification. Architec- ture was not sacrificed for labels: alternating panels of flat and 50% perforated zinc create lavish kaleidoscopic plays of light in the read- ing rooms, metaphorically transporting the us- ers into the undergrowth of the neighbouring woods.

  48. 48. 46 | PRIX SPéCIAUX| LAURéAt TROPHéE ARCHIZINC N°4 | In Colunga, a small coastal town in the prov- ince of Asturias, urban regulation on private housing is very restrictive. To blend with the local surroundings, houses must have sloped tile roofs while respecting the limitations of volume. Working with these constraints, the architects Antía Rey Babarro and Francisco Ferrao Fernández wanted to create a timeless project that would be neither a regional pas- tiche nor an ostentatiously fashionable villa. New materials chosen for their durability and resilience were used on the facade: iroko tim- ber, PIGMENTO® Red zinc, and bay windows. Zinc cladding on the windows and chimneys is reminiscent of arts & craft architecture and the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The long zinc balcony facilitates the transition between the ground floor with its modern- ist features - extended walls on the outside of the house, staggered internal walls, floor- to-ceiling windows - and the more traditional first floor that resembles its surroundings. The house is mainly used as a holiday resi- dence for a family with origins in the region, and is oriented north-south overlooking the Atlantic, on a large plot of 3,200 m². The floor space in the house follows American stand- ards: 1,200 m² on two levels. This generous surface area made it possible to isolate it from Between the Atlantic shores Photos: Marcos Morilla.

  51. 51. 49 In 1997, the provincial prison of Palencia, North of Madrid, closed its doors and its prison- ers were transferred to a more modern prison in a remote area. Its rehabilitation was the subject of great debate: should this building, which was once a part of the repressive state apparatus of Franco’s Spain, be conserved or demolished to make room for new construc- tions that would erase the sinister souvenirs of the past, but also a part of the country’s historical heritage? The neo-Mujedar brick architecture - considered a national style in the 19th century despite being inspired by Moor- ish architecture - and the exemplary panoptic layout of the central cell building allowed this penitentiary complex to escape demolition. The perimeter walls were knocked down and the site was opened to the public as a cultural centre and public administration building. Converting the building required radical changes as the tiny cells were not compatible with the new programme. The architects retained the facades but completely eliminated the interior spaces in the detention areas to create huge bright volumes with glass-panelled roofs. Different materials make these contempo- rary additions legible. A cladding of zinc and profiled glass adorns the skylights and exten- sions, connecting the different parts of the old prison: cell area, administration, etc. Despite the predominance of opaque material, the overall impression is of translucency and the zinc subtly ensures the transition from the old building to the new structures. Once it was transformed, this site became an emblematic place in the Carmen neighbourhood in the south of the town. A translucent prison Photos: FG + SG Fotografia de Arquitectura.
