The boathouse proposal designed by Daniel Cartagena and Kristen Bauer is sited in Devil's Spuyten, Bronx in NYC. The boathouse is meant to serve Columbia's crew team and also be able to be a community space where people can come to row, or just host events. The proposal takes the programs and distributes them into two volumes that are connected by a bridge on the second floor. The circulation then creates a loop that connects you from the ground level where the boats are kept up to the second level where the crew can practice shower or talk to their coaches in private offices. The volumes share a view of the river and a large platform that allows for both seating for watching races as well as stairs to descend to the boat shed.
The render shows the entry stair that leads to the elevated glass Bridge that connects the Columbia crew side with the community side.
The diagram shows the layout of the boathouse. The blue represents the circulation, the green is community program, the orange is the Columbia crew related program and the yellow is the storage for the boats. The layout allows for the crew to go about their routine separate from any activities that may be occurring in the community portion of the building.
The section is cut through the Columbia crew's portion of the building and shows the details of the building's envelope.
The render emphasizes the ground treatment in relation to the building.
