About This Project
This 45,000 SF Boys and Girls Club will be the flagship clubhouse and model for what these clubs can be. INTUS Arcade steel reinforced polymer fixed windows and storefronts paired with a modern design bring loads of light and views of Madison Square when all too often community centers are void of natural light and block off people from outside world. The subway may whizz by right outside, but INTUS’ sound reducing windows keep things quiet inside for Harlem’s youth.
Community centers and youth clubs should be full of daylight, bring joy and evoke thoughts of play even from the exterior, and be beacons for the community so children and adults alike flock there to help one another. Madison Square Boys and Girls Club (MSBGC) is all that and more.
