The Hamlin School has educated girls to “meet the challenges of their time” for over 127 years. Comprised of 3 separate buildings stepping 65’ down a slope, the campus suffered from circulation challenges. The 3 buildings, constructed during 3 different eras, were disconnected from one another, and not designed to support the school’s modern pedagogy. The renovation/expansion project clarified the circulation and unified the campus. The approach stacked a tall gymnasium above an arts space in the center of the site, allowing classrooms to be north facing with large windows and views.
