    This project involved the transformation of an existing four-story furniture warehouse into residential/office/commercial space for CAMBA Housing Ventures. Serving low-income and formerly homeless individuals, the existing building was renovated and modified to adjoin a new five-story residential building, including a new two-story sky lighted center atrium and the replacement of all floor and roof construction. A “green roof” system was designed atop the existing building to provide a park-like atmosphere. Due to its proximity to an existing subway tunnel, the design of this building involved interfacing with the NYC Transit Authority to develop a foundation solution that would prevent the transmission of loads to the immediately adjacent elevated train.
