Private Residence - Tuscan Terrace

Boston, MA


www-galvanizeit-org-project-gallery-uploads-images-EA_Logo_2005-150x151A wide variety of shapes (reinforcing steel, tube, mesh) and steel thicknesses comprising the structure, made this a technically challenging project that required the teamwork of the architect, fabricator and galvanizer to successfully deliver the highest quality coating.

The homeowner, having extensive experience with hot-dip galvanizing on other architectural projects, insisted that all exposed steel be galvanized for corrosion protection and then painted (duplex coating) for this critical component in the architectural statement of his home.

The team’s choice, Colorgalv, delivered the intended result of replicating the feeling of an outdoor Tuscan terrace perched high in the Mediterranean while providing a maintenance free, durable finish.
