Meditative spaces, roof gardens, glistening bricks, and comprehensive services all combine to provide quality housing for the clients and low-income residents of TSINY, a not-for-profit developer of affordable and supportive housing. Amie Gross Architects, designers of the iconic Mieles, will highlight the building’s joyful aesthetic which creates an environment for healing and growth.
From its inviting double-height lounge at the ground floor corner to its lantern reaching into the sky, this new building reflects both the TSINY commitment to community-fluent design, as well as the aspirational nature of its mission to help those with mental illness rediscover themselves.
AGA works on the front lines of New York City’s affordability crisis, designing buildings funded by the public, embracing the demands of economy as a driver of strong architecture. The understanding of materials, color and light is key to designing beauty that can be shared by all.
The tours will open a discussion on design elements particular to affordability and detail the building’s exterior design, as well as areas of the residential interior. Members of the AGA team and some of the masons who, with skill and care, laid the varied brick elements, will lead the tour.
Masks are required.
