(For the past decade, the New York City Housing Authority ...)
For the past decade, the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has been on a community center building binge. In the face of current economic conditions, many that are now ready to open their doors are facing the economic crunch, but remain optimistic that they will become active and important components of their communities. Among them is one we’ve been following for several years (not unusual considering the bureaucracy and politics of a major metropolis). It is the Saratoga Avenue Community Center in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. NYCHA commissioned New York City-based George Ranalli, Architect to renovate an existing 1,500-square-foot community facility that is part of the Saratoga Village Apartments, a typical 1960s 16-story, mixed-income housing tower. The project, which serves the existing housing block and several other buildings sharing the site, also included a 3,500-square-foot addition located on Saratoga Avenue.

GEORGE RANALLI ARCHITECT completed a project that glows with a keen sensitivity to form, materials and detail that has made this New York "architect's architect" an esteemed figure in his profession. A remodeled entrance and lobby in an old garment district loft building, along with the redesigned of upper floor hallways, departs from Ranalli's customary vocabulary, steeped in the style of an earlier day. He hasn't renounced his own esthetic. Rather, he's woven it into a vintage swatch of urban fabric. Synthetic blends may not be fashion's raiment of choice, but Ranalli's stylistic synthesis is a beauty. Located at 575 Seventh Avenue at 38th Street, Fashion Center Building is a 24-story block of showrooms and offices in a rich part of the garment district's distinct urban tissue. And while the building's architect, Henry Ives Cobb, is an obscure figure today, he was highly regarded at the turn of the century, chiefly on account of his master plan for the University of Chicago.
