Chelsea Court Affordable Housing
New York, New York
Chelsea Court, an affordable housing project specifically designed for previously homeless and low-income tenants, is a tribute to the belief that aesthetic environments enhance the lives of all people, whether rich or poor. Chelsea Court is composed of 18 studio apartments and community facilities including a lounge, conference room, laundry and offices complementing the layout of apartments. The design attempts to expand the typical boundaries of SRO housing within the context of a tight budget. This is low-income housing. Design counts for a lot.
