Located on a formerly industrial site in Brooklyn, NY, this project is intended to provide high-quality housing to a population for whom housing is often scarce and beset by institutional design. The building will accommodate 84 rental apartments, community facilities, and common spaces for its elderly and formerly homeless residents. The innovative design is configured into several block-like volumes, based on orthogonal and highly practical residential unit layouts. The upper and middle volume rest on a base that consolidates all services and circulation into two bars and disc, organizing the ground floor and preserving its transparency. Unlike conventional residential buildings, where common spaces are located solely in residual areas at the top and bottom, the building frames a centralized collective space for the elderly residents. This double-height “loggia” appears to be carved out of the middle volume of the building. The loggia is a civic and collective stage elevated above the city, but at the same time, it is intended to feel domestic, like an enlarged living room for its residents. Various features have been designed to promote the health of the building’s residents; a concern for aging populations. Exercise equipment is located in the rear yard, and the community facilities are expected to include a physiotherapy and wellness center. A separate circulation path, differentiated by its bamboo material, provides a relaxed and open route from the ground to the fourth floor, encourage residents to not always use the elevator. Finally, the roof garden will provide space to be outside and grow fruits and vegetables.
