A rippled brick facade stops traffic in New York City

An amazing 3D brick inlay solution is turning heads on the streets of the NoLita district (North of Little Italy) in New York City. The eye catching facade of Mulberry House was created by AP Formliners, who produces brick inlay formliners exclusively for Robertson Facade Systems in Australia.

This amazing residential apartment building is13 stories high, including commercial space on the ground floor and cellar, and nine residential units above, averaging 185 square meters each. Its location, right across the street from the historic Puck Building, notable for its decorative brickwork, as well as contextual zoning regulations requiring a “predominantly masonry” facade, led to the design objective to reinterpret this ancient art form in a contemporary way. The rippled brick facade treatment acknowledges the use of brick paneling, and and complements the neighbourhood's highly articulated historic brick facades.
