PROJECT: STATEN ISLAND JUSTICE CENTER
LOCATION: 30 BAY STREET STATEN ISLAND, NY
In response to the bail reform of 2019. Tonab Architecture PLLC was retained by the Center for Justice Innovation formerly known as Center for Court Innovation (CCI) to expand their offices city-wide while working with Frank Greene, FAIA, as justice facilities consultant. Tonab was architect on record for this project. The 4,000 SF floor plated allowed for leasing of two floors in the building, dividing them in to private and public spaces. The second floor consisted of private counseling offices, and general office work stations for staff that directly interface with clients. The Third Floor includes private offices for senior staff and the Program Director, along with work stations areas. The Pantry features a seating area and a bar-height area for short breaks. Finishes vary between vinyl tile and carpet tile. Most ceilings were left open with sprayed slabs and exposed ductwork, to maximize daylight into the office space. Hung ceilings were installed in the conference room for sound control. The large conference room features a movable partition for flexibility to accommodate larger groups and staff meetings.
