Longman Lindsey has been working with the Brearley School on its transformational project since 2015. The initial endeavor was the creation of a new 83,000 SF, 12 story building in Manhattan, while the second is a multi-phase renovation of their nearly 100-year-old building.

The new facility houses library and classrooms for the Lower School, as well as science labs, gymnasium, auditorium and music program. It creates a vertical campus, joining customized artistic program areas with state of the art science labs. Acoustic analysis of performance spaces and core learning spaces was conducted hand in hand with audio-visual system design. Environmental noise studies were essential to glazing selection that allows natural light throughout the building, while buffering traffic noise from busy street intersection.

The renovation projects include infrastructure upgrades, as well as expanded and relocated cafeteria which will enable it to serve as a multi-purpose space. The Library will also be relocated and expanded, both in footprint and services, as it is an information and technology hub for the 21st century. We are proud to working with the Brearley School as they reinvent their campus.
