Orakei - Standing Seam
Occupying a prime spot in the Orakei dress circle, these two stunning architecturally designed homes are a commanding presence amidst the predominantly traditional style homes in the area. The sloping 800m2 section provided ample space for both dwellings to fully utilise both soaring height, bold angles and long sweeping lines - the perfect base on which to showcase the breathtaking finish standing seam cladding can produce. Custom run Spanlok trays with a 455mm swaged pan are installed over a plywood substrate, ensuring the cladding maintains a beautiful crisp line across both roof and walls, subtly enhancing the bold, angular facade and distinctly modern flavour of these newly built homes. To remain in keeping with the muted hues and natural materials used throughout the build, we have selected Weathered Copper from the Colorcote range of pre-painted steel for both profile and flashings - this low gloss, semi matte finish was the perfect compliment to the subtle earthy palette the designer had envisioned for the exterior of these two homes. These Orakei gems are a simple yet stunning example of standing seam metal cladding and it's ability to add a touch of timeless elegance to any modern, or architecturally designed exterior.
