Zerega Avenue Emergency Medical Services Building by M.Arch faculty Henry Smith-Miller

By Henry Smith-Miller

We have recently designed a project that was commissioned by the DDC (Department of Design and Construction of the City of New York) and part of their Design Excellence Program. The project is now out for bids and should start construction sometime in November.

The Zerega Avenue Emergency Medical Services Building takes its design cues from its particular site configuration (rhombic), its program as an Ambulance Dispatch Center in an under-served neighborhood, and harbinger of the Bloomberg 2030 Plan for the City of New York. The building’s translucent skin and green roof wraps a partial two story structure with certain economy and demonstrates that projects driven by budget can still prove to be elegant and exceptional in their context.
