Private Boys' School in Washington, an Amazing Architecture Plan

Private Boys’ School in Washington, an Amazing Architecture Plan

St. Albans School, was founded in 1909 and is a well known boys’ school from the USA. Recently, a makeover of the institution was necessary, so the company hired was  Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM). The brief was to create a large (25,000-square-foot) expansion for the building and also to renovate the place almost entirely. A connection between the school’s four separate constructions was also required and of course it had to be as “natural” as possible. The architects took advantage of the location and created amazing interior and exterior passage areas, which join the buildings. Also, a completely new construction was raised, named Marriott Hall, which provides and aesthetic contrast with the rest of the project. The classes are spacious and lighting (artificial as well as natural) was an intensely studied facto by the team. What a nice place for spending some quality time learning! – via

    My friends are you there,…
    Happy century to St Albams School.
    ” OH my God ” But no with a long pile of glass and aluminum.
    We need to fix the building structure on time. [1900]
    “Natural ” mean “as it”
    I think they lost a lot of value and money, sorry.
