Andrew Berman Architect Designs Impressive Multifunctional Studio For A Brooklyn Artist
“This project was the opportunity for the artist’s entire workflow to be brought onto one site for the first time in his career,” explains a statement from the firm. Built off an existing warehouse in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, the facility is a tiered, three-storey complex, composed of a series of flat-roofed, black and gray volumes combined together and concealed from the outside via a corrugated-metal screen. The vast space enables the artist to run all parts of his complex and multi-stage business: including storing massive marble blocks, cutting them with high-end machinery, photographing the finished works, and shipping them to clients. “A forecourt allows for the delivery, handling, staging, and storage of multi-ton stone blocks,” add the architects.
