Locatedin Peter Cooper Village/Stuyvesant Town, CetraRuddy created four uniqueindoor/outdoor amenity spaces: OvalFilm, OvalLounge, OvalStudy and OvalKids.The four crystalline glass enclosures were designed as educational and recreationalamenity spaces that would create a new town center for 11,600 apartments. Thedesign concept incorporates mullion-free glass enclosures with vibrantjewel-tone interior design schemes that create an indoor/outdoor experience,showcasing indoor activity while also connecting to the pedestrian streetscape.A bluestone terrace with outdoor seating creates a podium on which each glassform sits.
Occupying space within a garden, the materials used for the projectare sustainable: recycled ruby floors, re-forested woods, recycled metals andrecycled low VOC carpets. Thefour spaces have common elements of design, including the sculptural furnitureand textural elements, yet uniquely offer various resident programs. Whenilluminated at night, they have a unifying dialogue, with the interior designand create an environmental and spacial moment event for residents.
OvalKids has wide expanses of open space to allow for flexible activity use, whilemore private areas, such as the screening area, storytelling area, kitchen andchanging area are tucked to the sides. The ceiling and flooring of brightcolors enliven the room creating a vibrant and enriching playful experience..
