Cultural concepts of community and shared connections inform much of the interior design of Crescent Court. Entering the building’s front doors, a reception desk, wooden seating alcove, and leasing area greets residents, while just down the hall the CCC offices, complete with a furnished waiting area, provide counseling and assistance for those in need. There is a reciprocal relationship between Crescent Court, its inhabitants, and Central City Concern; services offered within the building specifically for residents to increase the effectiveness of the CCC programs and guarantee individuals are supported and taken care of in all the ways they need.
Visual connections stretch throughout the multiple specialized amenity spaces. Interior windows establish sight-lines spanning from the property management office to the multiple community rooms. Not only does this increase safety and mitigate risks for the tenants with young children, it also fosters a greater sense of community and connection.
The shared common spaces within Crescent Court have programs and amenities tailored to all age groups. The inclusion of a teen room – outfitted with bean bag chairs, exposed brick-inspired tactile walls, and 70’s influenced art - and a Boys and Girls Club on site certify the project as a family-forward building. The Boys and Girls club space is held up by exposed wood beams and contains a micro-kitchen wrapped in vibrant orange tile, a flat-screen TV, and ample seating space to accommodate family get-togethers, larger community events, or television viewing parties.
The community kitchen is even more expansive. Dining tables, leather couches, and an electric range, refrigerator, and dishwasher highlighted by a blue backsplash invite residents to connect over shared meals and socialize with neighbors. A television mounted on textured, wicker wallpaper completes the comfortable lounge space at one end of the room. Large windows allow for views out to the community courtyard and fill the space with natural light.
Units have been designed with durability in mind while still maintaining an elevated feel. Wood-look resilient flooring, dark espresso-stained cabinets, and quartz countertops give these affordable units a Market Rate look.
With all the amenities, resources, and visual connections permeating the building, Crescent Court takes the wellbeing of each individual occupant to heart, and raises them up by establishing a supportive, nurturing community that embraces all its members and creates space for each of them to thrive.
