Five terracotta and stone facades by BKSK: Your Next Employer?25/4/2023
Five terracotta and stone facades by BKSK: Your Next Employer? Following last week’s visit to New York City-based Andrew Franz, we are keeping our Meet Your Next Employer series in New York City this week to explore the work of BKSK Architects who are currently hiring for a Project Architect.Get more news about terracotta cladding price,you can vist our website! Founded in 1985, and directed by six partners, BKSK describes their work as “socially, contextually, and ecologically engaged.” Based in New York City, the 45+ person firm has amassed a portfolio of over 200 projects across cultural, civic, educational, institutional, and residential sectors. The firm is also responsible for the design of the Queens Botanical Garden Visitor Center, the first New York City civic building to be awarded LEED Platinum certification. Over on Archinect Jobs, the firm is currently hiring for a Project Architect to join their office located in New York City’s Garment District. For candidates interested in applying for the position, or those interested in learning more about the firm’s work, we have rounded up five distinctive New York City street fronts by BKSK that reflect the studio’s design ethos. For their Gatehouse to One Madison, BKSK sought to convey a “sense of arriving home” for residents. The building’s five-story façade was inspired by the historically rich fabric of Madison Square at its surrounding streets, with staggered vertical fins made from custom-glazed terracotta. In addition to screening the interior spaces, the screened facade was developed to add a sense of depth to the street front. “The variegated hues of creamy glazing imbue warmth and distinction among its limestone-faced neighbors, moving and reflecting light in unique patterns throughout the day,” the team explains. “These details and others, such as the travertine forecourt that leads to the building’s custom bronze and glass entrance doors, were carefully conceived to appeal to the human senses and enhance the ceremony of coming home.” A six-story commercial building on the corner of Spring Street and Broadway, BKSK developed 529 Broadway with attention given to the former Prescott House hotel that occupied the site from 1852 to 1935. Through studying both the former building and its neighbor at 101 Spring Street, the team developed a facade design that changes as it wraps around the street corner. At the western end of its Spring Street front, the building features open-joint terracotta panels that create the appearance of punched opening masonry building. Moving east, the design evolves to reveal more of the curtain wall glass construction existing behind the terracotta system. As the building reaches its western Broadway end, the glass and aluminum curtain wall is fully expressed through protruding aluminum frames and cast iron loft proportions. For their 12-story mixed-use residential development at 1 Great Jones Alley, BKSK once again incorporated a terracotta screen to reflect the masonry and cast-iron traditions of the site’s history. To add a contemporary feel to the primary Broadway facade, the team designed an “unabashedly modern” asymmetrical form to the terracotta fins over crisp glazing. In contrast to the historical facade along Broadway, the building’s main residential entrance along Great Jones Alley employs naturally oxidizing Corten street along with a cobblestone driveway and green wall, creating an homage to the area’s past “industrial grittiness.” A harmony between the ornate and gritty continues inside the building through a material palette of stone, wood, ceramics, and glass.
