US firm Durukan Design, in this rapidly changing neighborhood – Northern Brooklyn, epitomizes the revival of a more socially engaged designer for a better urban environment for Bushwick residents.
The porcelain surfaces by Refin has been chosen for these life spaces with a strong appeal where the industrial style meets pop art, designed to encourage socialisation and create an interesting community.
The project won the “Residential” category in the international competition Refin Project Contest 2020, conceived to reward the best architecture and interior design projects made with Refin tiles.
Rheingold Bushwick's social project in New York is even more than an architectural one: in the fast-moving Northern Brooklyn district, this building with its 35,000 square metres of interior space is a place for socialising, encouraging the daily participation and active involvement of its residents. The shared spaces available in the five hundred flats offers many comforts and services that go beyond the usual gym and laundry room, including, for example, a cinema, beauty salon, climbing wall, yoga, art and music studios, animal welfare centre, squash court and more: the six different Amenity Zones spread over two floors include twenty-eight different recreational spaces alongside a café and areas for work or study.
The interior design incorporates the influences of the art scene and the industrial roots of the area: both the Design Industry Oxyde collection, which evokes the oxidation of metals (in two shades: Dark and Light), and Plant, which is configured as a wood-cement with a délabré taste also expressed by the Ash shade, perfectly interpret the underground style and help emphasise the eclectic mood of this creation.
