As part of the redevelopment of the old Rheingold Brewery site, a new 61 unit apartment building was constructed for the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council Inc. (RBSCC).
RBSCC requested a 15,500 square foot adult daycare facility to be constructed on two lower levels of the affordable housing apartment building designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, PC.
The sloping site affords the two level complex natural light for all program spaces. The circulation space is centralized in one continuous ramp that serves to link the floors visually and ease access. Program spaces include visual and performing arts studios, exercise and game rooms, computer classrooms, as well as counseling and administrative offices. A full commercial kitchen and 200 seat dining room complete this full service senior center.
