BROOKLYN HEIGHTS MONTESSORI SCHOOL Brooklyn, NY
Architect – Murphy, Burnham and Buttrick
This Brooklyn Pre-K to 8th grade Montessori school embarked upon a large renovation and 11,000 s.f. expansion after purchasing an adjacent Fire Patrol Station in 2009. The renovations included a new library, learning kitchen, outdoor terrace space, and a flexible multi-purpose performance space called The Firehouse Theater. The highly efficient lighting, which complies with stringent NY state energy code criteria, covers a range of task requirements for a wide variety of users while providing a lively atmosphere throughout.
