Project Renewal, a non-profit organization that helps eradicate homelessness in New York City through retraining, employment and affordable housing developments. Through programs that provide health services, emergency, transitional, and permanent housing, and employment services to connect clients with meaningful jobs, Project Renewal helps some 16,000 individuals yearly. BR Design was retained to design the organization’s new, one-floor, 40,000-square-footcorporateoffice within an old printing press building in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood. Conceived to accommodate growth and improve efficiency, the contemporary workspace features open-plan workstations along the perimeter and glass-fronted interior offices, accommodating training and counseling areas, administrative offices, meeting rooms and interview areas. The spacious proportions and robust architecture of the base building inspired the design team to effectively incorporate such existing construction details as exposed high ceilings slabs, exposed round columns with flaring capitals, and industrial windows into the clean, informal yet functional interiors, which are appointed in attractive, modern furnishings. Triangular-shaped LED lighting fixtures echoing Project Renewal’s logo and a color scheme featuring Project Renewal’s signature color give the facility a look that is uniquely its own.
