brooklyn and corten steel can’t go wrong together.
project brief from architect andre kikoski:
” the facade of this 10,000 square feet retail building is forged from two abandoned warehouses. it’s signature is created with two layers of steel panels, laser-cut with a dynamic gradient pattern: an oxidized corten outer wall and a reflective inner layer of stainless. illuminated by concealed LED lights, the perforations align sporadically and create a constantly changing visual, each of the five retail bays in the facade is its own gate, transforming to awning when the store is open… ”

building vs pedestrian scale
according to curbedNY, these retail stores will be organic market, wine shop and live music venue. check out this link from curbed and you will see what it looked like before . that’s right, the design changed from some greening mix facade to totally walled with corten steel.
architect andre kikoski is also the architect behind the Wright restaurant in guggenheim museum, new york (you can click here to see my previous post about the restaurant).
