San Francisco, CA
On the ‘prow’ end of a multi-family housing project in the Castro district of San Francisco, architect VWMP utilized BŌK Modern’s rain-screen system in aluminum finished with a rusted steel effect paint system.
This finish is perfect for clients who want the ‘corten’ steel look but wants to avoid the rust drips over time. Containing iron ore powder in the paint and applied with acid, the rust effect happens overnight and is almost impossible differentiate from actual rusted metal.
Other BŌK Modern elements on the project include Juliette balcony’s in anodized aluminum, cornice sunshades, guard railing and a pedestrian entrance gate finished in the same rust-effect finish.
