The Innovation Lab and Learning Commons addition is an open, flexible, contemporary take on the existing traditional classroom buildings on campus. It includes a new welcoming and secure main entry to campus and expands learning opportunities. The Learning Commons houses the library collection, small group rooms, a media lab, individual work spaces, and flexible classrooms. The Innovation Lab provides an expanded home for the Gate Innovation program and includes a cut room, 3D printer/laser cutter room, and a 2,300-square-foot flexible maker space. The addition also includes two new Lower School science classrooms, development offices, and the campus IT hub.
Cuningham Group partnered on the design with Bowie Gridley Architects.
