Friends Seminary

An expanded, enhanced, and accessible school is constructed behind the facades of three historic townhouses and above the main building, joining seven buildings for 750 students around a central court.

A new townhouse entrance, with replanted gardens, provides separate access for the Upper School. The great room, a multipurpose gathering space, opens onto a courtyard and views of the adjacent Friends Meetinghouse. Above, the Upper School Commons and Terrace form an indoor and outdoor student gathering space. Upper floor classrooms are grouped around shared study and locker areas. Two floors of additional classrooms are added above Hunter Hall. A rooftop greenhouse and play area complete the plan.
