The Rippowam Cisqua School Upper Campus renovation and addition project was cited as an Outstanding Project by Learning by Design magazine. KG+D Architects partnered with the Rippowam Cisqua School to transform their Upper Campus into a next generation educational facility that effectively supports the independent middle school’s immersive educational programming while remaining in keeping with the community’s “Bedford Barn” architectural tradition.
The project addressed this challenge by creating a front elevation that is reflective of the community’s 350-year barn aesthetic, while the interior expression is open, modern and forward-thinking. The project includes a new main entry, media center, dining hall, classroom wing and an innovation lab that opens to a courtyard amphitheater.
The project was recognized for its architectural and interior design and for having next generation benchmark type design and planning features.
