The Enclave at the Cathedral is a new residential development located on the property of Manhattan’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The Cathedral and its surrounding gardens and buildings form an 11.3-acre campus collectively referred to as “The Close.” The new residences sit on the site that formerly housed stone sheds used by skilled masons to cut the granite used to construct the Cathedral. Given the proximity of the new building to the Cathedral, the siting, massing, and design of the building were critical.

Overview: Located directly across from the Brooklyn Museum in Prospect Heights, this 2750 sq. ft. pre-war apartment commands breathtaking views of Lower Manhattan and Prospect Park.

Arvene East is unique site in that it is one of the few locations in Far Rockaway that has a visual connection from the elevated rail to the ocean. In examining the fabric north and south of the rail, obstructions along the length of the shore separate the communities from the ocean.

The design celebrates the biggest asset of the Y as a community facility; its diverse, multi generational user base. The identity of each programmatic space was enhanced, expressing multiplicity rather than institutional uniformity. The entry lobby, fitness center, locker rooms, studios, offices showers and pool are organized as a series of parallel bands. As members move through the different bands, they experience the immediacy of the simultaneous happenings that animate the building. The distinct character of the bands enables the modularity of the scheme, where one program space can be replaced by another (like slots in a computer) without compromising the integrity of the design.
