Stainless Steel Roof and Gutters for Contemporary Farmhouse Design

17 Jul 2015

Bogindhu is a large farmhouse extension and refurbishment in Aberdeenshire in which Aperam UGINOX® TOP Type 316 stainless steel was specified by Room Architects. It has been used for the roof and concealed box gutters, the first floor also being marked by a stainless steel band which serves as a cill for the cladding and in places as a gutter. The roof is a 0.5mm standing seam system set at 500mm which was hand-formed on site and, at just 4kg / m2, weighs considerably less than a similar system in copper, zinc or aluminium. UGINOX TOP’s durable matt finish is designed to harmonise with a wide variety of building styles and materials, in this case vertical timber façades, full height windows and stone walls.  The new extension was designed as a contemporary barn structure, placed in an ‘L’ formation to complete the missing side of the farm court.
