Housing of Curvy Walls

In Melrose, Bronx, the majority of the population is immigrants from the Caribbean region. While there has historically been an issue of missing public space and community events, this project seeks to better transform the selecting window into an urban community through daily events. To create more opportunities for immigrants to meet people and integrate into the neighborhood, this project works from two aspects: adjacency and hybrid space. Adjacency brings repetitive interaction between neighbors. Hybrid space is the mixture of multiple public programs such as the laundry room, package delivery room, and trash bin. The significance of these is often underestimated. This project maintains existing programs and transfers the inessential space into a more occupiable room.
