Bellevue Men’s Shelter

Acheson Doyle Partners was engaged by the NYC Department of Design and Construction beginning in 2015 to provide Architectural Services for the exterior landmark quality restoration of Bellevue Men’s Shelter in New York, N.Y. The original masonry structure was constructed in 1929 as a Psychiatric Hospital; today it serves as New York City’s largest homeless shelter for men. ADP is responsible for the building’s in situ masonry wall reconstruction; underlying structural steel repairs and replacement; replication of the original terracotta cornices; window replacements and restoration of other architectural features. Full replacement of the roof and roof drainage systems is also being undertaken.
