The Ossining Children’s Center has been a fixture of the local community for over 100 years and the goal of this project was to continue that tradition while bringing the facility into the 21st century. The new 28,000sf Arthur Samberg Building is a 3-story purpose-built childcare facility that replaced and consolidated OCC’s former outdated Victorian buildings. The structure is thoughtfully oriented on a 2.5-acre site to work within site limitations and optimize the views of the Hudson River. The program includes 14 classrooms for up to 225 children in age groups ranging from infants up to 12-year-olds. The facility also includes outdoor play areas for each age group, administration space, kitchen and a multipurpose space that can be used for indoor play, lunch and community events.
