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.
