A Northeast transitional succession planting
Founded in 1786 by a religious group, the school has been a long standing institution in the city of New York. After moving its location around for decades, it finally settled where it still remains today. Now, known as the oldest co-educational school in New York City, the building itself was in need of modernization. Unlike any other school in New York City, a private school in the heart of Gramercy Park envisioned and created an outdoor space for their students. The school created a space for outdoor learning, in addition to an area for reflection and awareness for both the students and faculty. The school took on an extensive renovation to its typical classroom spaces, as well as it’s not so typical outdoor classroom space.
