New 88,000 square foot elementary school for 600 students in grades Pre-K through 6. This new school, situated between the established turn of the 20th century residential neighborhood and the prestigious Williams College campus in the center of Williamstown was designed to bridge the space between. Prominent on the street with its formal brick façade like so many of the college’s buildings, the low slung roof afforded the opportunity for dormers which were scaled to relate to the neighboring residences. In this school, grade specific classroom pods are organized along a central spine of public function spaces. These pods create south facing courtyards which offer protected play areas, sheltered from the prevailing winter winds.
