Bronx Chapter Award

Single Family House - Studio 360 (Rye, NY)

Renovating this house in Westchester, with a green perspective, presented a unique set of considerations and challenges. It started by educating and collaborating with our client to ensure that the project can be environmentally friendly and in budget without sacrificing any of the aesthetic value of the project.

​The Bronx Defenders Justice Campus  (Bronx, NY)

Alta Indelman Architects

The Bronx Defenders, a major community resource, is a nonprofit organization that provides innovative public defense services throughout the borough of the Bronx.  The Bronx Defenders Justice Campus occupies over 30,000sf of street level space at E 161st Street and Park Avenue in the Bronx. This project encompasses the recently renovated spaces at these locations. The Justice Campus houses office space for over 300 staff who work in collaborative teams.  The interiors use simple, economical materials - wallboard, plastic laminate and paint, to create a vibrant environment. The Bronx Defenders clientele includes some of the poorest residents of New York City, many facing significant life crises.  It is important to the Bronx Defenders that their offices be uplifting to clients, as well as spacious and supportive of the on-site staff. 

Project Completion: 2017
