Settling in at 4380 Bronx Boulevard

We are very pleased that the staff and residents at 4380 Bronx Boulevard, a men’s homeless shelter in the Bronx, are enjoying their building. Project Renewal’s recent blog post gives a tour of their new facility and a sense of the variety of spaces that serve the different needs of the residents: the dorm rooms, the showers, the lobby, and support spaces. (And scroll to the comments!) This former manufacturing building has been transformed with dramatic skylight openings  – required to provide legal light and air but are sculpted in a modern way – that give the dorms a bright, airy feel. We feel that the simple, thoughtful details along with careful floor and finish selection sets the stage for what a shelter can be.
