The new spa at Park Lane’s Four Seasons Hotel, designed by Eric Parry Architects, utilised the VM ZINC PLUS® standing seam system on the rooftop extension.

Planning requirements required a perfectly curved warm roof build-up which, due to the spa’s humidity levels, had to meet BS 5250 Class 5.

VM ZINC QUARTZ-ZINC PLUS® features on the barrel vaulted roof in sheets up to 15m in length while ANTHRA-ZINC PLUS® was used on the skirt and perimeter gutters.

Eric Parry’s Julian Ogiwara commented: “Being in such a prominent location, the importance of achieving a highly crafted roof was paramount. Key factors were product life cycle, use of single sheets of zinc to cover a 14m barrel roof without a ventilated ridge detail (which could only be achieved using VMZINC PLUS), colour range and reflectivity. The hotel operator has dubbed it the fifth facade, an appropriate compliment to this beautifully crafted roof.”
