510 Gates Avenue

RoundSquare Builders was hired to build 510 Gates Avenue, which will be a 6-story, 200-bed shelter facility for single adults operated by the Doe Fund in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. With an expansive dining room in the cellar, topped by a rear terrace, 510 Gates combines an efficient, compact plan with ample communal spaces - resident lounges on each floor and several classrooms for vocational training and social services support. Clad in brick to fit in unassumingly with the neighboring context, the exterior of the building is accented with channel glass to provide a glow of light in the shared spaces, emphasizing the importance of community and relationship-building. The interiors are shaped with color and light to bring vibrancy and cheer to the building, providing an atmosphere of dignity and positivity for its residents as they work to reshape their futures.
