KG+D collaborated with the Scarsdale Union Free School District to develop a 21st Century library for the Edgewood Elementary School. The project created a new library with various spaces for collaborative study and learning. The main desk is positioned at the center of the space with sight lines to two large, open library spaces and an adjacent technology lab. Traditional stacks intermingle with varied height and flexible furniture, soft seating and a welcoming reading nook. The technology lab offers opportunity for hands on learning and making.
The Eastchester High School project upgraded and expanded key instructional spaces to meet the academic demands of a 21st Century Education while accommodating a significant increase in enrollment. In order to address both of the 1927 High Schools’ challenges, the design solution sought to create Collegiate quality social and student support space while also creating collaborative, forward-thinking Next Generation learning environments.
