Additions and renovations at White Plains High School included a new media center, a science wing, multiple cafeteria spaces and major alterations to the exterior. Originally built in 1962, the campus plan was dominated by the modernist concrete structural grid. The challenge was to sensitively renovate the exterior fa├žade to create a more inviting group of buildings while respecting the original design. Still in fine shape, the structure became the framework to expand insufficient teaching spaces and replace aging building systems.
