Freshforte is a mixed use grocery store and restaurant / bar in Lekki. Jeanne Schultz was hired by Studio Elementals to design the facade; the design resulted in what appears like a veil draped over the assemblage of used shipping containers beyond it. The facade is comprised of a series of deconstructed diamond shapes, broken down in scale to allow for the 3-dimensional woven wrapping effect it wields over the confinements of the building. Apertures are made to allow for the shipping containers to penetrate the boundaries of the facade, and to allow for thresholds. Particularly special breaks in pattern include the entrance to the store, where large panels are removed to allow for a direct encounter with the facade, and enjoy the spatial experience of an unordinary threshold.
