BAM South 286 Ashland Place Brooklyn, NY 11217
Location: 286 Ashland Place Brooklyn, NY 11217
Architect: Ten Arquitectos and Ismael Leyva
Finished Cladding Materials: Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) and Crystalline Glass Stone
System Type: Rainscreen with Gasketed Mega-Panel Joints

According to architect Ten Arquitectos, this mixed-use building will serve as the gateway to Brooklyn Academy of Music and the newly developed cultural district. Comprised of approximately 220,000 sf of ACM and nearly 16,000 sf of crystalline glass stone, the complex geometry of the fa├žade was achieved through 3D modeling and highly skilled craftsmen. Because the exterior walls were manufactured as panels in a climate controlled facility, EEWS was able to ensure a high level of precision and quality demanded by such a high-performance application.
