Abandoned since the 1970s, Public School 90 (PS90) has been completely transformed while preserving its majestic exterior, and creating interior spaces which maintain the grand 12-foot ceilings, 10-foot windows, double height entrance space and gothic details. The result is the creation of 75 new mixed-income condominiums apartments, and a not-for-profit Dance Center with studios and administrative space.
The design restored and transformed the wonderful bones of the building to create spacious interiors, multiple gardens, and a community space that maximize the attributes of the building while preserving the story of its past. Simple finishes enhance its history as a public school, while creating a modern and elegant home for the residents of the building.
PS90 incorporates a number of sustainable features, with natural light filtering throughout the building.
