Bronxville Union Free School District

Project Overview

Bronxville School District retained LAN Associates to provide services for capital projects funded by a first vote approved bond referendum. The Bronxville School was originally constructed in 1924 and houses grades K-12, so the design considered not only the school’s historical architecture, but also the school’s ability to serve a wide variety of age groups.

The goal of the bond referendum was to renovate several instructional spaces to provide high-tech, collaborative project-based learning environments. To that end, a new flex space learning commons was designed with makerspaces, dedicated creative design areas, and large whiteboard walls for sketching.

The scope of work also included preserving and restoring neglected portions of the 100-year-old building envelope and three additions to expand the undersized cafeteria, entrance lobby and guidance suite. The design of the guidance suite compliments the collegiate gothic architecture of the original building while the school’s modern facilities represent 21st century learning.

Additional site improvements were made, including the replacement of a playground, the addition of an artificial turf football field and resurfacing of the track. As part of a $5M+ grant from FEMA, a new stormwater pump station was also installed on the campus to divert excess runoff from the existing trunk lines to the Bronx River.

Client Testimonial

“Approximately three years ago, we were searching for a firm to replace our previous architects. After an intensive interview process, it was clear that LAN was the top choice for our district. To say LAN hit the ground running is a gross understatement. Our district was in the middle of a $1 million library renovation and ready to embark on a new $24 million referendum for additions and renovations to our almost 100 year old school. Not only did LAN take over the library project, which involved unexpected legal challenges of taking over a design role after the transition of work with another firm, they were involved in every step of the planning process that led to an overwhelming positive vote of our new bond.”
