Casa Val in Escazu, San Jose, Costa Rica offers breathtaking views of the distant city and mountains, and features an intimate courtyard for family interaction and social functions. The home is strikingly contemporary and counts among the materials used in its construction RHEINZINK prePATINA Angle Standing Seam Panels and Reveal Soffit Panels. RHEINZINK is available in the United States from RHEINZINK America Inc., Woburn, MA.
Jaime Rouillon Arquitectura of San Jose, Costa Rica designed the 6,000 sq. ft. residence. In addition to zinc, the firm's design incorporates stainless steel, copper and black iron detailing.
The project's 1,500 sq. ft. of zinc standing seam panels and reveal soffit panels were fabricated and installed by MetalTech-USA, a RHEINZINK distributor located in Peachtree City, GA. The firm fashioned the claddings from 0.8mm-thick RHEINZINK prePATINA graphite-gray stock.
Work on the home was completed in November 2012.
