Set in the heart of a thriving artist community, the Hudson Senior Center is a marriage of historic and modern values of architecture. The Senior Center is a one and half story addition to the north face of a historic brick building housing the Youth Center. The design includes a multi-purpose space, art and game rooms and administrative offices. Spacesmith is providing architectural services for the design of the 4,000 sf Hudson Senior Center. The project entails an addition to the existing historic Hudson youth center building. Located on the corner of South Third Street and Cherry Alley in Hudson, New York, the project will house senior center functions in a new 1-1/2 story wood clad addition. The new addition will include a multi-purpose great room ringed by clerestory windows, an art room and an exercise studio. A new two story elevator, HVAC system and pantry are included in the new design. Spacesmith is working closely with the local government and historical society to design a sympathetic and appropriate building that adheres to the historic context of the neighborhood.
