The Client

Common Ground Community (CGC) is a non-profit organization working to end homelessness. Founded in 1990, CGC has developed over 2,000 units of supportive housing in New York City, Connecticut, and upstate New York, with the goal of creating 4,000 additional units for the homeless by 2015. CGC approached Kiss + Cathcart Architects to design an efficient, healthy and low energy building that fit into the existing Lower East Side context.
