Denton Green Apartments
Garden City Park, New York
As seniors age, they require dynamic facilities that promote accessibility and ease-of-use. We renovated Denton Green, a 40-year-old Mitchell Lama senior housing facility in Nassau County, to provide accessibility and increased quality of life for residents. A new, fully landscaped central driveway provides direct access for visitors and emergency personnel as well as a comfortable gathering space both inside and out. We also added a second, fully accessible elevator to the building and created clearer paths to assist residents and visitors in moving through the building. The addition provides new social spaces with comfortable seating, ample daylighting, and bright new finishes. We updated the façade with new cement panels, which enliven the face of the building and emphasize the vertical piers. New energy-efficient windows add to the modernization of the façade.
