West Brighton Community Center

staten island, ny

The newly expanded West Brighton Community Center features a distinct, creative façade that blends two-toned brick, bluestone, and metal that is compatible with the existing architectural vernacular.

The 12,000 sq. ft. of new programming features a youth center with a library, lounge, and multi-purpose room with a proscenium stage, and a film production and editing center.  The new accommodations also include a 6,000 sq. ft. senior center that house a ceramics shop, game room, administrative offices, and a multi-purpose room with a kitchen.

For ease-of-maintenance and safety, we used durable materials such as ground face concrete block and stainless-steel panels throughout the interior spaces.  An adjacent courtyard provides much needed green space for occupants of the NYC Housing Authority complex.
