01 Dec Reconstruction of the old car garage
Berg Design Architecture for the design studio to renovate and equip Kinfolk old car garage in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Office at the design studio Kinfolk is already there, and the New York architectural office garage area of 370 square meters c six-meter ceilings had to be turned into a multifunctional space, easily modified to immediate needs of the studio.
A large area and high ceilings allow architects to build a garage in the middle of the spherical structure of the pine timber that resembles a geodesic dome built of triangular facet panels. Inside it is a large bar and a hall for events and meetings for up to 30 people on average. Bar and if desired can be combined into one closed space and invite to the event had about 150 people – among them the architects installed a sliding panel from the same pine lumber.
Inside the dome bare concrete and complex patterned design of beams, which have become the main decoration of the interior, a bar in the spirit of the general concept of the project and sofas – quite ascetic for the bar, but there is everything you need to create the right atmosphere.
The remaining space around the faceted dome architects took a small boutique firm Studio Kinfolk, the interior of which is almost entirely of a single bare concrete. The windows of the old garage they were dismantled and put in their place glass windows, so that the store with one of the walls of the wooden dome is fully visible from the street.
