Justice Sonia Sotomayor Community School

KG+D in collaboration with Yonkers Public Schools has designed a new 95,000sf community school, the Justice Sonia Sotomayor Community School. The building, which is currently under construction, will house grades Pre-K through 8th grade and include spaces for art science, special projects, dual language curriculum, and computer science. The physical education wing, which includes a gym and stage, is designed to function as a stand-alone community center after school and on the weekends. The nurse’s office has been specifically enlarged and located near a separate entrance so it can function as a community health clinic after school and on the weekends.

Wolf Conservation Center

KG+D originally started working with the Wolf Conservation Center to develop a detailed Master Plan for campus additions and alterations. Collaboratively, we developed schematic design options for a new visitor’s center, hillside amphitheater, addition to the caretaker’s house and a future maintenance barn. The Master Plan has also developed design solutions for increased parking, improved vehicular and bus traffic and the addition of camping platforms. The overall goal of the project is to improve the visitor experience and better serve the patrons and school districts that utilize the center’s facilities. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts by other firms to execute the new visitor center, KG+D was brought back on to redesign the project and get it back on budget. It is currently moving forward and in the approvals process.

Town of Cortlandt, Montrose + Verplanck Planning

KG+D collaborated with the Town of Cortlandt to develop conceptual design options for the redevelopment of the downtown Hamlet of Montrose and the potential development at Quarry Park in the Hamlet of Verplanck. Both studies have been used to effectively communicate the Town’s vision and build community support through a detailed planning process and exceptional visual graphics.

Town of Harrison, Sollazzo Recreation Center

KG+D is currently collaborating with the Town of Harrison on the planning, design and development of a replacement recreation center. The new center will be approximately 42,000sf and feature basketball court space for two games to occur simultaneously, a general multi-purpose room with support pantry, a recreation game room, an arts and crafts room and a computer room. Additional spaces include a fitness center, locker rooms and office space. There will be parking options onsite, under the building and offsite.

Yale University, Golf Learning Center + Driving Range

The design team collaborated with a higher education institution to develop a new Golf Learning Center and Driving Range that matched and supported their prestigious athletic programming. The design process explored several options with the final solution being a single-story facility with indoor/outdoor practice areas overlooking a new driving range. The facility includes Women’s and Men’s Golf Team Suites, a flexible Training Pavilion, and outdoor gathering and viewing terraces.
