ARC605 | Spring 2019

The goal of this project was to create a cooperative for an aging population looking to (re)discover hobbies and passions, and to create a unique and thriving community for aging senior citizens in the Masten Park area of Buffalo, NY.

Community members have access to both public and private studio and workspaces. These spaces can accommodate a variety of interests. With strategic placement of the studio workspaces along the street front, the work and artistry of the community is at the heart of the cooperative while remaining visible to the local community
