Pre K Center 765 - Retrofit

K765 recently completed is  a new 14,000 sq. ft. Pre-K center located at Coney Island Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. The project consisted of gut renovation of a two floor commercial building.
The first floor contains an entrance lobby with security desk, Administration suite, Community/Parents room, three Pre Kindergarten classrooms with dedicated toilets, Exercise room ,Warming Pantry, Grounds storage and miscellaneous support spaces.
The second floor contains five Pre-K classrooms, Staff lounge, Custodians’ office and additional support spaces.
The building envelope was enhanced with a new entrance canopy. The canopy identifies the main entrance while providing protection for strollers.
The street facade storefront was replaced with new aluminum and glass with applied decorative window film to allow for maximum light penetration without the risk of glare or compromised privacy. The parking area at the rear was transformed into a fenced in play area with protective safety surfaces and play equipment.
