The new Seven Bridges School is a 160,000 sf middle school that was built on a wooded 43-acre site. The campus is accessed from a long uphill winding driveway paralleling a feeder brook adjacent to the Croton Reservoir. The driveway connects into a perfectly circular loop road that wraps around the new school and lower athletic playing field. Symbolically, this physical and educational plan represents the development of both mind and body together. The building consists of classic materials including brick, cast limestone, natural wood detailing, and copper roofs. The design nestles into the slope of the site, and is one story on the uphill side and two-and-a-half stories from the approach up the driveway.
KG+D was featured in an article by the Westchester Business Journal discussing some of our current collaborations with local school districts that are leading the way in educational facility design.
“As the flipped classroom permeates secondary education, the function of the school building is also changing. There are more flexible spaces more conducive to group work and small group instruction rather than lectures. It’s an exciting time in the school system full of significant change.”
