The
Andrews

Sponsored by Common Ground, a community non-profit organization, The Andrews was an expansion of a former 6-story walk-up hotel.

The existing lodging house, or SRO (Single Resident Occupant), one of only a few left in Manhattan’s Bowery, was converted to a 9-story elevator building complete with lounges, a terrace and support service offices accessible to all residents.

The 146 “First Step Housing” units employ small-space concepts by a variety of designers. The Andrews was featured in the 2006 “Design Like You Give A Damn: Architectural Responses To Humanitarian Crises” by Architecture For Humanity.

This project was funded by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) and NYC’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).
