Renovation to Pre-K
and Kindergarten Wing
Newtown Friends School


Renovation of an outmoded 4000 SF wing that includes classrooms and ancillary spaces. Three pop-out classroom additions with large, operable windows and doors, create a permeable barrier between the traditional school building and new outdoor learning laboratory. Remnant space between the Administrative offices and the early childhood wing was captured to create a skylit commons area for gathering, displaying student’s work, and hosting parents. Improvements include accessibility and code compliance upgrades, new storage solutions, integrating teaching technology into classroom spaces. Enhancements were made to overall building ecology utilizing sustainable, non-emitting finishes and a new zoned mechanical system.
