Hudson Senior Center
Located in Hudson, New York, the project was to house the senior center functions in a new wood clad addition. The addition was to include a multi-purpose great room ringed by clerestory windows, an art room, game rooms, administrative offices and an exercise studio. A new two story elevator, HVAC system and pantry were included in the design. The addition was designed within ADA Accessibility Guidelines. Spacesmith worked closely with the local government and historical society to realize a sympathetic and appropriate building that adheres to the context of the neighborhood and its inhabitants.
Set in the heart of a thriving artist community, the Hudson Senior Center is a marriage of historic and modern values of architecture. We envisioned the project to be a 4,000 sf one and half story addition to the north face of a historic brick building currently housing the Youth Center. The goal was to bring together different generations into a connected yet separate space, each area accommodating the age specific needs of its members.
