The Center for Active Design recently featured New Settlement Community Center, a new Pre-K through 12th grade school and community center in the Bronx, as one of their case studies. Some of the campus’ active design features include indoor and outdoor learning spaces and activity hubs, a healthy food program, stairwells with windows to admit natural light. Natural light is a way of turning any drab space into a space of activity. A unique feature of the building is its dual program of community center and school allows both programs to take advantage of shared spaces such as a pool, gymnasium, roof top garden, and outdoor amphitheater.
