This vacant apartment building was rehabilitated and converted into supportive housing for women who have recently been released from prison and their children. The housing provides the mothers a supportive environment while offering the privacy and independence of a private residence.
Each floor, originally divided into two very small units, was transformed into two two-bedroom apartments. The cellar level houses communal facilities such as laundry and storage as well as a meeting and activity space.
The floor structure, stairs, building systems, windows and roof were replaced throughout, and new kitchens, baths, finishes and wood flooring were provided. This project is funded by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.
