For the third year in a row, Dattner Architects has partnered with Services for the UnderServed (S:US) for our Day of Service. S:US is a leading NYC nonprofit with deep roots in the community, providing support for populations in need through both housing and counseling services. This year, over 35 volunteers came together to provide an interior refresh to one of their NYC shelters for victims and survivors of domestic violence. This was an opportunity to create beautiful, vibrant, and functional spaces for the residents and staff.
“S:US came to us with a challenging project in mind knowing that we would work with their clients and staff to enhance their space. This domestic violence shelter had several crowded offices and community rooms that were either very drab, or chaotically colorful. We were able to create a cohesive design that lightened up the rooms, tied them together, and gave residents and staff places to express their creativity. Someone remarked how architects are able to take a simple paint job and make it into something extraordinary. We would like to think we did just that. The space looks incredible.” — Paul Neidhard & Gus Munoz, Day of Service Co-Leaders
