The brief for this project was simple: a zinc worktop for a kitchen island.
As with all our bespoke projects, the design journey with our clients commenced and we explored all manner of design elements to be considered: what profile edge would they prefer, what finish, and what other features would our team need to incorporate?
The worktop would feature an undermounted double sink and holes for the fitting of the taps. This type of project requires a process whereby the zinc sheet is wrapped around and underneath the opening of the sink to ensure a watertight finish.
Complete with swage joints and a pencil edge profile (straight, with a slightly softened edge), the zinc was prepared in an antique patinated finish and incorporated five draining grooves with a gentle gradient towards the sink.
The result was sleek and contemporary – the perfect addition to our client’s light-filled London kitchen.

Along with copper, zinc has long been known for its antibacterial properties. As copper offers a lustrous warm hue, zinc feels modern and sleek. Both options are beautiful alternatives to other types of work surface. To discuss the options, please get in touch.
