Converted house scoops Hot Dip Galvanizing Award
The redevelopment of 52 Huntington Street, London N1, known as the Zinc House, was the winner of the 15th annual Hot Dip Galvanizing Awards, held recently in London.
The project took a typical Victorian house and converted it into a modern family home with an additional floor and a dramatic new street façade in milk glass, zinc and galvanized steel.
Designed by Heat Architects, the judging panel said the project makes a dramatic statement in an otherwise undistinguished street of post war houses.
Four projects received Highly Commended Awards: Princess Park Stadium, Dartford; Pinions Barn, Buckinghamshire; Craw Road, Paisley and Benyon Wharf, Hoxton.
