LYCEE FRANCAIS DE NEW YORK ADDITION | New York, NY | 17,000 GSF
2016 | Susan T. Rodriguez (Design Partner, Ennead Architects)
The new wing at the Lycée Français de New York, positioned prominently on York Avenue, creates a more public face to the school on the avenue and a new point of access into the main facility from the City. The addition is strategically connected to the main building providing important new spaces for teaching and learning. In addition to new classrooms, administrative offices and study areas, a double height media lab — a state-of-the-art broadcast studio — forms the intersection between the two buildings and equips the school for its role as a center for cultural exchange. The design supports a renewed focus on the importance of sustainability and community incorporating energy efficient systems, a rooftop wind turbine and the use of recycled channel glass providing daylight throughout with views back to the city from the top floor.
