A utilitarian warehouse conveys a sportsman's
"While offering an elegant,
modern interpretation of the industrial shed,
this design provides office workers with plenty
of access to daylight and outdoor spaces."

This proposed warehouse building will serve as a headquarters
for a new easy-lifestyle brand owned by clothing manufacturer
Abercrombie & Fitch and will be added to the company's
existing office campus (featured as a BW/AR awards winner
on page 102). Although connected to the campus visually and
in terms of materials, the new building is quite different.
In the same manner that stables, sheds, barns, and other outbuildings
help shape the landscape of large estates, this 110,000-square-foot
structure will serve as a background element. Light will filter
inside through a perforated metal scrim, and the building
will feature exterior courtyards and second-floor porches.
Exterior materials include a metal roof and corrugated-concrete-panel
skin; interiors will reflect the retail store's palette of
dark woods and metals.
