This proposed building creates a new interactive space for the students. Our concept creates outdoor gathering spaces linking the building to the scenic surroundings. The open floor plan allows for flexibility and student interaction. Glass was used to maximize daylight and take advantage of the panoramic views while the strategic use of color through accent walls, floating panels and furniture, defines spaces and excites the eye.
This cyber-network theater was designed by JRS as a highly interactive, real-time training environment for Northrop Grumman’s customers. With seating for over 200 guests and multiple conference areas, our solutions included advanced acoustical, lighting, and large screen viewing systems.
Our expansion of this K-12 Manhattan private school involved the conversion of a mid-19th century row house adjacent to the main complex. With our design priority centered on maximizing academic usage, the renovation provided for an additional 7,000 SF of space.
Located in the heart of campus, the goal was to create a more aesthetically interesting eatery. The open floor plan design plan was achieved with an addition offering enhanced views. Overhangs and screens were incorporated into the design to shade the interior from harsh sun light. Exterior up-lighting was added to highlight this social gathering space while interior pendant lighting created intrigue and energy.
For Mandell’s new K-8 green facility, JRS is designing each classroom around the curriculum, incorporating leading-edge technologies and sustainable materials throughout. Features include a black box theater for student productions; a 70 inch LCD Video Monitor to display student art; a “living wall” garden in the cafeteria; and an 8,000 SF outdoor terrace. The separate learning center-library is being constructed nearby.
JRS has partnered with MSU for several years on initiatives focusing on building standards, feasibility studies, and renovations of offices and classrooms. As part of the Standards Program we produced a 3D virtual tour capturing the experience of walking through renovated spaces.
Reconfiguring four interconnected structures, our expansion of this upper West Side school added classrooms while opening and brightening the pathways between buildings. The project required working closely with Landmarks, other agencies, and the local Community Board.
This four story library was experiencing interior damage due to water infiltration at the windows. An investigation determined that the window gaskets were failing. Therefore a complete façade evaluation was conducted to draw existing elevations and detail the repairs which entailed surveying over 250 windows. All gaskets were replaced and the windows resealed. Special coordination was required as the building remained open during construction.
This new, from the ground up accessory field house will be the latest addition to the school’s state-of-the-art athletic complex. Standing one and one-half story, the building will house four locker rooms, coaches offices, a trainers room, storage space, a concession area and public restrooms.
The new school situated on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, was designed to provide a safe, healthy and stimulating environment for children. The furniture is colorful and sturdy and flooring is a new line of vinyl wood plank with the beauty of hardwood but durable and comfortable. JRS delivered a creative and fun environment that embraces Goddard’s acclaimed child-centered approach.
