Sponsored by the City of New York, this project involved the conversion of a former supermarket building into a senior center serving noontime meals for over 100 seniors and providing a myriad of activities such as arts and crafts, exercise, and computer instruction. The prior structure was completely transformed. The bend in the 204th street facade is carried into the interior geometry with a funnel shaped lobby and trapezoidal dining room at the first floor level. The building is designed for long term service, durability and ease of maintenance, with such features as porcelain tile and solid vinyl floors, a between-floor waterproofing membrane, acoustically textured cementitious ceilings, and protective rubber chair rails throughout. A commercial kitchen was laid out and equipped to meet the approval of the supervising dietician and chef.
