2000 W. Berry
Fort Worth, TX
2000 West Berry is a commercial property in Fort Worth that will revitalize a site that was formerly held by an automotive service and repair shop. The design of the building and site encourages pedestrian traffic, walkability and a vibrant, lively atmosphere between the nearby TCU campus and proposed location of a new passenger train station. The building itself is a modern interpretation that reflects the former use of the site and its surroundings as an industrial center. This two-story, mixed-use facility will house office, retail and restaurant spaces. The prefabricated steel frame is extruded from the brick and metal building, showcasing airy outdoor spaces at each level that are accessed by large glass overhead doors. The patio provides a cozy seating area that is inviting to pedestrians. By using different perforation patterns to create a play on transparency, the Corten steel-wrapped balcony helps give the building an appearance that is both contemporary and nostalgic.
