102nd Street Field House

In 2010 the Parsons Design Workshop undertook the challenge of transforming a landmarked 1930s era field house in Riverside Park into a fully functioning comfort station and storage space as well a year-round community space for Parks events.

The treatment of the front colonnade needed to accommodate a 12-month conditioned space while regaining the aesthetic of a romantic open-air pavilion. To achieve this, a set of details were developed to secure a storefront system in the space while accommodating Landmarks aesthetic requirements as well as an exterior security grille required by Parks.
