Inspired by Antoní Gaudi's Casa Batlló, James Brenner utilized organic lines and curves to create a contemporary interpretation of the essential movement of line. Wood, glass and LED light transforms the storefront into a dynamic façade, allowing light to wash into the space. The familiarity of the lines and curves are both an homage to Gaudi's form and a tribute to the value of place-making.
