Bronxchester Competition

Bronx, NY

The Bronxchester Urban Redevelopment Concept Plan included four LEED certified buildings for a mix of low-income housing, commercial, and community facilities in the South Bronx. Large housing developments need a variety of flexible outdoor spaces to serve a diverse community and its many needs. We created spaces that appeal to residents of varying ages, cultural backgrounds, interests and activity levels. The site design includes distinct public spaces, a pedestrian oriented landscape at the street-level, and semi-public rooftop gardens for the new residents. Our proposed open space design celebrates the artistic heritage of the neighborhood, promotes physical activity with an engaging landscape, and provides opportunities to interact with and observe nature.
