The Patchogue YMCA commissioned bld architecture to design its new 55,000 SF, three-story, state-of-the-art facility on four acres in the Village of Patchogue, NY. The scope of design services included remediation of the environmentally sensitive site, which required approval from the Suffolk County DEC and DOH.
The building program includes spaces for daycare, recreation and fitness rooms, a gymnasium and natatorium. To help diminish the large size of the building on a challenging site, the facility was designed as a neighborhood of smaller, connected buildings. Large expanses of glass also reduce the mass of the building, while allowing visitors to see in and out. This building has won a number of design awards.
