KHA Khronicles

Sustainable Architecture: The Humanities Building at SUNY Purchase College just received LEED Gold certification from the USGBC. KHA rebuilt and reconfigured the iconic building, one of the first to be built on this campus that opened in 1972. A new video of the completed project is now available on our web site.

Regulatory Milestones:¬†KHA’s design for The Allen-Stevenson School, an independent K-12 school in New York City, recently received approval from the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission and was granted a zoning variance from the NYC Board of Standards and Appeals. The school is renovating and expanding their campus within their historic neighborhood.

More School Seats to Meet NYC’s Growing Student Population: Pre-kindergarten through fifth grade students in the Norwood neighborhood of the Bronx started the school year in the newly opened 55,000-square-foot addition to PS 56 designed by KHA. Over in the Schuylerville neighborhood of the Bronx, construction started on a KHA-designed expansion of PS 14, another Pre-K to fifth grade school, which will add 46,000 square feet of new classrooms and a cafeteria that overlooks an open green space and play yard.

First Phase of Charter School Master Plan Complete: The Charter High School for Law and Social Justice opened their doors in a new location this fall, the former Holy Spirit Catholic School in the Bronx, NY. KHA designed the renovation of two classroom floors as part of the first phase of work, with additional floors slated for renovation for the next school year.

Preserving Our Past: KHA donated drawings and supporting materials of 30 of its most important projects to Avery Archives at Columbia University this fall. The projects date from the firm’s founding in 1972 to the present.
