Gowanus Bunker Gets Woody

March 26th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Bunker with Wood One

One of the hallmarks of some of architect Robert Scarano’s work is the use of exterior wood. Among the buildings that have gotten this treatment is the one on Bond Street that we call the Bunker. (The same building with the dogs that attacked people and a small black dog last week.) The vicious attack reminded us that the very slow moving development has made a bit of progress in recent months independent of crazed killer dogs running the streets. But we digress. Our sole purpose here is to present a couple of photos of The Bunker with Wood.

    the window patterns look like they spell Lion with the bottom of the L going under the rest of the word.

    Yes, we have seen this fake walnut veneer before in an earlier post. It just keeps getting better, don’t it?

    They say there’s always one Scarano you can’t quite hate…

    This building is one of the most poorly built pieces of garbage that I have ever seen. I have watched this thing go up from day one and I would never step foot in that building. It is a perfect example why the city needs to revamp the inspection process and stop giving out building permits to developers like this.
    I also find it disturbing that they could be allowed to build a straight wall on a curved (in my opinion warped) foundation. A reputable third party should really check that place out.
