A magnificent project – located directly on the fjord

In the middle of the picturesque landscape of the Swedish island of Tjörn stands an extraordinary building that is as impressive for its architecture as it is for its choice of materials. The detached house, which is located directly on a fjord, shines with modern elegance and timeless aesthetics. Clad with a total of 3.5 tonnes of prePATINA ECOZINC blue-grey from RHEINZINK, this building is a prime example of the harmonious combination of architecture and nature.
The use of zinc as the main building material not only gives the house an elegant appearance, but also ensures that it blends in perfectly with the surrounding nature.

Living, where others spend their holidays

The island of Tjörn, located on the Swedish west coast, is a true paradise for nature lovers and those seeking relaxation. Situated 60 kilometres north of Gothenburg and about 55 kilometres south of Lysekil, it is known for its breathtaking coastal landscapes, picturesque fishing villages and a wealth of outdoor activities Tjörn offers an unrivalled quality of life. Living here means being surrounded by the beauty of nature every day and enjoying the peace and serenity that this island offers. The Swedish island is a place to enjoy life to the full – be it by walking along the coast, taking a boat trip or marvelling at spectacular sunsets.

In close touch with nature

The choice of prePATINA ECO ZINC blue-grey as the main building material for this construction project was a conscious decision based on several considerations. Zinc is a natural material that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also offers ecological benefits. It is durable, low-maintenance and fully recyclable, making it a sustainable choice for environmentally conscious builders. The pre-weathered surface of RHEINZINK ensures that the material has the appearance of an even, elegant patina from the outset, which then develops over time, integrating the building even more harmoniously into its surroundings.
