New Settlement Community Campus
Bronx, New York
Portfolio / Community
The New Settlement Community Campus offers a unique model for school development. Through a partnership between Settlement Housing Fund, the New York City Department of Education and the School Construction Authority, this new campus will include two new schools: a Primary School and an Intermediate/High School, as well as a Community Center. The schools will serve 1163 students, while the integrated campus will provide programming for thousands of neighborhood residents.
Highlights of the program include a 75 foot-long swimming pool, an auditorium, a competition gymnasium, a library/technology hub and an outdoor amphitheater and play yards. The two-story mass running along Jerome Avenue houses the public spaces while the classroom portion of the building is rotated in order to set itself apart as a distinct architectural element. The library dramatically cantilevers over the main school entrances, highlighting the role of literacy and technology in the community.
NSCC opened its doors to students and the community in September, 2012.
