Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School
- 1100 Architect
- New York
Rapidly rising enrollment at Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School (LREI) created a need to fully renovate existing facilities and expand. A new 15,000-square-foot building, housing learning spaces for students grade K-8, occupies a small parcel of land flanked by existing school facilities on two sides and an apartment building to the south. The new structure integrates the vastly disparate floor levels of the two existing facilities, easing circulation and flow throughout the school. The interiors foster an intimate and collaborative learning environment, while the relocation of the middle school entrance strengthens the dialogue between the school and the community.
