Dock 72 Lobby at Brooklyn Navy Yard // Fogarty Finger


 

Text description provided by the architects.

Dock 72 is the first ground-up office building to be built in Brooklyn in nearly 30 years. Our firm was responsible for designing 60,000 RSF of public and amenity spaces, including a 7,000 SF lobby that runs the length of the building.

Interiors lean heavily on an industrial aesthetic featuring concrete floors and blackened steel columns, with strategic splashes of warm wood paneling along the ceiling and a white oak trim in the furniture to create a warm, hospitality-like environment.

In keeping with the Navy Yard’s effort to bolster New York City’s manufacturing base, local manufacturers from the Yard were invited to curate the public areas.

Architecture and detailing were inspired by the structure of ships, sail patterns, industrial elements and materials found in the Yard itself. A color palette and “story” was carefully curated and inspired by the vibrant color, texture and patina within the Navy Yard.

Inspiration was drawn from sun-faded colors of the ships passing through and architectural materials employed in the historic Admirals Row.The rooms called for a story or narrative to connect the series of spaces. We submerged ourselves in historic and contextual research, ultimately landing on a narrative inspired by the Plimsoll line: an indicator on a ship’s hull that marks the journey through varying levels of water.

Four different types of water that ships sail through are deep, summer, fresh and tropic. Our team commissioned four Brooklyn-based artists to create custom murals that told the Plimsoll line story. The power in the Plimsoll line story itself aligned all of the project’s partners and owners.Dock 72’s lobby was completed in Fall 2019.
