Irvington Union Free Schools
Irvington, NY

To accommodate increasing enrollment and deferred maintenance, two bonds were passed:

Bond 1:  funded a new 28,000 square foot wing for the Dows Lane Elementary School, along with site and building improvements.

Bond 2:  funded a plan to construct a new High School/Middle School Community Campus on Irvington High School's 30 acre sloping site.  The original 90,000 sf high school was built in 1962.  It was an L-shaped building with no clear entry.  Our master plan called for creating a new high school/middle school community campus with 140,00 sf of new construction:

  • A new middle school divided into two 6-8 grade houses

  • A new cafeteria/music/science building

  • A new arts and athletics building with a 740-seat theater and competition gymnasium

  • A new ceremonial entry

The new plan accommodates 1300 students.  The high school and the middle school have their own dedicated academic classrooms and share common spaces such as the library, gymnasiums, theatre, art rooms, music rooms, and science labs.

The placement of the new buildings forms three interconnected quadrangles surrounded by covered walkways.  Circulation spaces and major common spaces face out to the quadrangles.  The overall arrangement of outdoor space is informal and analogous to an agora or market square.
