New York based architecture firm HWKN introduces ‘Bushwick Generator’, a bold new office campus situated in Brooklyn, New York. Formed as a gem-like brick volume, the project gives shape to the area’s creative spirit and relentless drive, offering a hub for the innovative companies that call Brooklyn home.

 

‘The generator truly is a campus, an amalgam of community, novelty, and authenticity. It is the antithesis of the sterile silicon valley office park’ the studio mentions. In order to create working environments that are as lively as the structure’s exterior form, the design invites the neighborhood’s energy inside with areas for public programming. These spaces can be used for exhibitions, performances, and social events, bringing together office tenants with community members in a bustling center.
