The Mosaic Pre-Kindergarten Center is a two-classroom universal pre-kindergarten located in a multi-tenant one-story commercial building with rooftop parking that is part of the LeFrak City superblock. The rear of the raw commercial space had no existing source of natural lighting, and a significant portion was located beneath a sloping ramp to the rooftop parking. We were able to minimize the educational space that would be affected by the ramp’s slope by utilizing most of the reduced-height space for administrative rooms. Our design included the installation of stepped windows at south facade to maximize the natural light into the exercise room located under the ramp.
