Custom Copper Kitchen Hood, Private Residence, Windermere, Fla.
Sheet Metal Contractor: Vickers Metal Works, Orlando, Fla.
Vickers Metal Works Inc., of Orlando, Fla., took a design concept and turned it into a custom copper kitchen hood for a private residence in Windermere, Fla.
The project scope was to take a design concept from a photograph supplied by the custom home builder and interpret the design from the photograph in order to plan and fabricate a custom copper kitchen hood. Prior to fabricating the hood, Vickers Metal Works prepared and submitted the details for approval to the builder.
The sleek work of art is constructed of 48-ounce copper and measures 28 inches by 60 inches tall. The hood was given an antique finish and required 100 man-hours to fabricate. The custom antique finish was completed by American Metal Refinishers of Orlando, Fla.
The hood was fabricated in two sections, top and bottom, with all seams welded and finished to give a seamless appearance. The custom stainless steel filter and light housing were supplied by the contractor and were installed during fabrication.
Vickers Metal Works is a full-service custom and architectural sheet metal shop offering both fabrication and installation services.
