berg design delineates kinfolk studios in brooklyn with geodesic dome

this multifunctional project, completed by berg design in brooklyn’s williamsburg neighborhood, is articulated around the shell of a geodesic dome. designed for kinfolk – a multidisciplinary design studio – the timber structure divides the former car garage into three separate volumes; a retail space adjacent to the street front, the bar inside the dome and a large event space at the rear of the building. the latter space is visually opened and closed to the bar by installing and uninstalling removable panels on one of the shells. the program called for a scheme that would feel intimate with 30 patrons, but also function as an extension of a larger event space with capacity for 150 guests.
