Henning Stummel’s Tin House

With the objective of creating a cohesive construction that forms a dialogue with the warm, earthy London stock brick of the surrounding buildings, architect Henning Stummel created the Tin House.

Both the roof and façades of the Tin House are made from GreenCoat PLX Pro BT, which features a patented, Bio-based Technology (BT) coating using a substantial portion of Swedish rapeseed oil. Furthermore, the Tin House utilizes many traditional tinsmith details for a modest and utilitarian finish.

Well-known among tinsmiths and metal roofers for its easy hand forming and long colour retention, GreenCoat PLX Pro BT also features a Bio-based Technology (BT) with a substantial portion of Swedish rapeseed oil instead of fossil based oils, which are traditionally used. The unique, patented BT solution by SSAB reduces the environmental footprint significantly.

In addition, GreenCoat PLX Pro BT is highly resistant to corrosion, UV radiation as well as scratches. Installation went smoothly and thanks to the low temperature elongation, the result was a clean look without buckling or deformation.

GreenCoat PLX – Practical benefits for roofers

Project: Mulino Di Terenzano Pozzuolo, Italy
Target: Reconstructed water mill
Product: GreenCoat PLX Pro BT

Near the Italian town of Pozzuolo, the ancient Terenzano water mill, which dates back over 500 years, has been redesigned and restored in a way that has attracted much attention. Aesthetics and quality were major themes in this restoration project. 

During the roof installation, tinsmiths were able to perform a number of detailed hand forming procedures with GreenCoat PLX Pro BT in order to obtain the low profile look. They also experienced GreenCoat PLX Pro BT to be highly scratch resistant.
