Ludgate House

2 mins

Richardson Roofing installed the bespoke curved zinc roof that was the defining feature of this strikingly modern design, which transformed an old and dated livery yard into a new home.

Ludgate House is a high-quality development whose design references an existing corrugated ‘Dutch’ barn building it replaced. This agricultural building was converted into a contemporary home, whose stand-out feature is barrelled zinc roof. The building also features timber cladding and soffits positioned on the first floor.

Complexity

Central to the overall design is the floor-to-ceiling curved zinc roof, with standing seam that emulates the corrugated rhythm of the previous barn’s external skin.

Workmanship

There were many special bespoke non-standard zinc details to satisfy client requirements. The contractor created the barrelled roof on site, demonstrating excellent detailing on all the elements to deliver a standing seam.
