SYSTRA designed a new 3-K center for the NYCSCA, as part of its commitment to create 3-K centers in Queens, NY. Careful analysis of the space and consideration of the design options for the program were evaluated and proposed in the space of a two-story building. SYSTRA also identified the scope of work for the landlord to complete prior to leasing the building.

The design accommodates five classrooms that provide a comfortable setting with furniture and equipment that encourage a learning environment for the students. The classrooms include an exercise room and outdoor play area. Colors were selected to promote playfulness and positivity.

The mechanical spaces were configured to provide efficient systems and minimize disturbances to the existing structure.
