 Pigmento Red on £5.5 million development


Standing seam roofs and rainwater goods in VMZINCPIGMENTO® Red have been used in Once Architecture’s design of modern five-bedroom homes in Cambridge.

weathered shade of red will be retained through zinc’s natural patination. The tone and surface texture are unlike that of any other metal and complement a diverse range of building materials.
