Reflecting on 2017 — An Award Winning Project Year!

Opening just over a year ago, our Adaptive Reuse of P.S. 186 has earned an incredible year of recognition. This project, accomplished from years of hard work from the entire project team, has been honored locally and nationally for excellence in historic preservation, interior design, and for its contribution to the community. The line-up of prestigious awards includes: New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Lucy Moses Award, Society of American Registered Architects NY’s Design Award, and the Building Design + Construction Platinum Restoration Award, along with the American Institute of Architects QUAD State Design Award, and Interior Design Magazine NYCxDesign Award.

As the sixth award for The Residences at P.S. 186 / The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem (BGCH), we are proud to announce the project’s latest recognition from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP). Each year, NYS OPRHP selects a handful of exceptional buildings that preserve and rejuvenate New York’s historic cultural treasures. Under Governor Andrew Cuomo, the Office of the Governor of New York recognized five “Outstanding Projects” at the end of 2017—and only one project is located within New York City. The design team, led by Dattner Architects, was honored during the awards ceremony on December 7th for their commitment to preserving a local landmark and providing vital resources for the vibrant Harlem neighborhood. The adaptive reuse of this once abandoned public school building transformed P.S. 186 into much needed affordable housing and a beautiful new home for BGCH.

We are honored to breathe new life into this remarkable historic landmark.
