The Gowanus Tower is a new 8 story mixed use building in a Brooklyn manufacturing district. It is conceived as two volumes, with a four story base , a gap, and a two story volume above with sweeping views across Brooklyn. The gap will break the scale of the structure, making it more responsive to the surrounding homes. The base volume will be clad with a concrete panel (Fiber C), a solid ‘ground’ upon which sits the lighter, more sculptural and open upper volume. The top two floors will receive a wood panel rain-screen cladding by Prodema.
