What could have been would've been amazing.
But that cladding is simply gorgeous! Very industrial looking, love the depth with the layers stepping inwards, giving it a full and solid look. The industrial tone really helps to emphasise this areas past, whilst also giving me a vibe of the steel and iron works for the subways and highline of New York.
This cladding in a solid box really does compliment one another. The cladding will also help to ground this area, warming the street scene up with its contrast of tones, textures and colours compared with its crystal neighbours.
