Teller Avenue

Bronx, NY (2007 - 2010)

The volume of this new 43-unit residence follows the curve of the irregular corner site which faces onto Claremont Park. Public rooms are located at the ground floor, with a community room set at the top floor facing the park. The balance of the street-wall building is filled out by studio units organized along a naturally lit corridor using Kalwall translucent panels. The raised congregate terrace leading from the lobby is defined along its southern and western edges by continuous planters.

Teller Avenue is one of a family of six new supportive housing residences which have similar building programs and share a common feature: they all adapt to irregular 'remnant' urban sites.
