The Jennings Supportive Housing
by Alexander Gorlin Architects

Eric Petschek

The Jennings creates safe, permanent, affordable housing for homeless domestic violence survivors and their families.
It is owned and operated by a non-profit organization dedicated to serving this population and which develops supportive housing to provide residents with the platform to live stable, violence-free lives. This project not only addresses the leading cause of homelessness in New York City – domestic violence – but also establishes a striking architectural statement on an intersection in The Bronx that was completely destroyed in the 1970’s.


This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
