CorTen Building

Make the steel the star.

Rust never sleeps. And Farha Construction found a way to make the most of that.

For the exterior of an office remodel, the client opted to use Corten steel – with a molecular structure that allows the top layer to rust while the bulk of the steel is unaffected.

The result is a natural look that responds to the elements but gives the building everything it needs to stand strong against those elements.
