Sinterra Construction contracted the Brass Workshop to manufacture brass paneling for a wall in the hall of an executive class apartment building in the ZILART housing complex.
This contract makes a good example of how the paneling of an object with patinated, polished brass sheets can be a work of art. The wall area to be paneled came to 17.5 m2. The very substantial quantity of brass required could only be assessed onsite.
The brass sheets were cut to size, pasted on to MDF sheets, then patinated and polished. Finally, a coat of lacquer was applied. The seams between the panels were filled with decorative brass inserts. The panels were mounted on the wall using a custom-designed subsystem.
The collaboration between Sinterra Construction and the Brass Workshop for the creation of the brass paneling in the executive class apartment building within the ZILART housing complex serves as a remarkable testament to the fusion of craftsmanship and functionality. The project’s objective was to transform a mere wall into a piece of art, showcasing the exquisite beauty of patinated and polished brass.
Covering an expansive area of 17.5 square meters, the sheer volume of brass required for this endeavor was beyond estimation until the on-site assessment was conducted. Precision was paramount in this undertaking, as each brass sheet needed to be meticulously cut to fit the designated space and then securely affixed to MDF sheets, providing a stable foundation for the brass panels.
The transformation from raw brass to a work of art began with the patination process, lending each sheet its unique, time-worn character. This was followed by meticulous polishing, bringing out the metal’s lustrous sheen. To ensure longevity and protect the panels from environmental factors, a protective coat of lacquer was meticulously applied, enhancing both aesthetics and durability.
However, the attention to detail did not stop there. The seams between the panels were adorned with decorative brass inserts, seamlessly melding one panel into the next, creating a harmonious and visually captivating composition.
The final, and perhaps most challenging, step in this intricate process was the installation. A custom-designed subsystem was employed to securely mount the panels onto the wall. This not only ensured a precise fit but also safeguarded the integrity of the brass artwork, allowing it to withstand the test of time.
The end result was nothing short of breathtaking – a stunning testament to the marriage of craftsmanship and engineering. The brass paneling, adorning the hall of the executive class apartment building, not only elevates the aesthetic appeal of the space but also stands as a testament to the artistry that can be achieved when vision, skill, and dedication converge. It’s a true masterpiece that embodies the spirit of luxury and artistry within the ZILART housing complex.
We hope the residents of the ZILART building enjoy the art object delivered by the Brass Workshop.
