Reinstated looks, lasting traditions


A renovation of the historic Morgan Avenue subway station house for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has recently been completed by the New York City architectural and planning firm of Urbahn Architects.

Urbahn Principal Natale V. Barranco, AIA, LEED AP says that as a crucial public transportation connection for an up-and-coming Brooklyn, NY neighborhood, the renovation of the Morgan Avenue station was very much needed in order to not only improve the appearance of the station, but to also upgrade the building’s structural system as well as increase passenger comfort. Part of the renovation included the replacement and installation of a new brick and limestone façade.

As you can see in the below picture, the newly revamped subway station looks amazing! We love how geometrical the location looks. It has a very clean look with lots of perfect lines. This station appears to be welcoming and well constructed, allowing the renovation to have served its purpose well.

For a similar look, we recommend using Triangle Brick’s North Carolina Flashed Wirecut brick, from the Downtown Collection. A flashed wirecut brick will provide clean cut lines in addition to a classic red color with a small amount of flashing.
