Award-Winning Residence Features Exterior Aluminum Walls

Article-Award-Winning Residence Features Exterior Aluminum Walls

ATAS International Milestone
Traditionally a roof panel, ATAS said its Standing Seam Shingles provide a unique vertical shingle look for wall applications. 

A unique and modern private residence in East Hampton, New York won two first-place awards for the residential walls and interiors categories in ATAS International’s 2020 project of the year competition.  
Homeowner and architect for this project, Aaron Zalneraitis of Bates Masi + Architects in East Hampton, selected Standing Seam Shingles for the exterior of this Long Island home.  

He also brought those bold lines of the vertical metal panels into the house to achieve a natural transition from outside to inside, according to ATAS. 

Along with wood flooring and ceilings, the metal walls help to achieve a warm and welcoming atmosphere to the living space.  

The glazing and screening between the three solid sections contribute to the open feel of the home and connect it to the outdoors. 
This “Milestone” house was named for the granite milestone which Zalneraitis discovered when clearing the lot for his new home.  It was one in a series of historic markers along a road connecting two villages. 

“Metal Standing Seam Shingles define the solid living spaces, connecting them with the outside," Zalneraitis said. "Their projected vertical seams and low-profile flat horizontal seams emphasize the verticality of the solid volumes as they spring from the ground, especially as the sun rakes across their surface.” 

Standing Seam Shingles are installed with concealed fasteners over a solid substrate. Transverse seams are staggered to provide clean lines running up the wall. 

Traditionally a roof panel, ATAS’ Standing Seam Shingles provide a unique vertical shingle look for wall applications. 

The panels for this project were manufactured in Slate Grey .032 aluminum.  

Two panel sizes are offered: 16” x 36” or 16” x 60”, which allows them to be easily handled at the job site.  

The panel depth is 1” and the shingles have a smooth texture. 

They are available in 16 oz. copper in addition to .032 aluminum in over 40 colors, including wood grain print coats, matte, and weathered steel finishes.  

Corrosion-resistant aluminum panels were chosen for this project due to their weather resistance and durability for this home that is located across the street from a harbor susceptible to flooding in strong storms.
The contractor, TRM Enterprises of Bridgehampton, NY, installed a total of 2,800 square feet of the 16” x 60” Standing Seam Shingles on the exterior and interior of this home.
