Brooklyn Heights Montessori

Brooklyn, NY

Brooklyn Heights Montessori School, located in the Cobble Hill neighborhood, is comprised of several buildings which together form a single unified campus for the school. We were asked to develop design concepts for the Middle School roof which might provide new opportunities for both athletics and academic programs, while also considering the potential accessibility and daily flow between classrooms and outdoor resources. To that end, the current design approach explores a direct link between the school’s Visual and Performing Arts spaces and the Middle School roof through the design of a programmed connecting bridge leading to outdoor instructional and recreational spaces. These areas are supported by light infrastructural elements such as built-in seating, planters, and work surfaces which promote active engagement between students and their physical environment.
