At first glance, you don’t even realize Annabelle Selldorf’s second gallery for David Zwirner is made entirely of concrete.
To achieve this wood-like texture, the design started in the pouring process. They created concrete slabs in board form, blended it with polished concrete, and integrated wood details throughout the entire surface.
I think the texture creates a truly unique juxtaposition between the plain concrete sidewalk outside and the beautiful wood-like concrete façade of the gallery. The wood finish creates a beautiful texture complement to the board-form concrete.
