The Brooklyn Heights Montessori School comprises renovations of an existing school and the expansion of the campus through the incorporation of an adjacent historic firehouse. The project includes a new library, a large multi-function space which is used as a production theater and community space, new classrooms and common areas for the elementary and middle schools, a teaching kitchen, and an expanded outdoor terrace. The design team retained the historic fabric of the firehouse facade while transforming the interior to meet the school’s unique pedagogical requirements.
