Positioned near the West Oakland BART train station and built in collaboration with David Baker Architects, BŌK’s creativity and ingenuity are on full display at The Union.
Our scope for this project spans all four faces and consists of rainscreens with integrated sunshades, riveted panels, perimeter fencing with blade brackets, aluminum balconies, Cor-Ten guardrails and stair guardrails, and gate shrouds. One particular challenge of this project required the rainscreens to be cantilevered off of the building due to its design. BŌK Modern managed to easily modify panels to these unique conditions.
With install now underway, the process has been straight forward. Balconies are assembled on the ground and then raised into position and the sunshades, which have more irregular brackets, are unified by universal slots across three panel types.
BŌK Modern’s custom patterning creates visual unity and a seamless brand identity for this up-and-coming development.
