CHELSEA DAY SCHOOL








Chelsea Day School is a 20 year old nursery school located in Manhattan. A new school was designed for the 7,000 square feet of a vacant third floor and full roof above in an old warehouse on 14th Street. The $675,000 project included a new five stop elevator and new fire stairs so that the building would meet current codes.







The number of classrooms was increased from three to eight, and a new community central space created for use in a variety of activities and functions. The roof was replaced and a playground/garden created for outdoor activity. The primary intent of the project was to create a place that could capture the community spirit of the school with a limited budget. The result is a series of light filled spaces which are all connected to one another with interior windows and skylights.
