Greyston Bakery

 Yonkers, NY | 2003 | 23,100 SF | $9 M

Designed by Maya Lin and built on a 1.6-acre brownfield site in Yonkers, New York, the Greyston Bakery is a state-of-the-art production bakery run and operated by individuals with histories of incarceration and other barriers to employment. With Ben and Jerry’s as their main client, all profits fund the Greyston Foundation, which provides low-income housing, community day care center and other projects. Energy efficient metal-halide lamps were used throughout the Bakery to complement the numerous exterior windows, which are strategically located to further allow natural light into the interior of the Bakery.
