Their addition, essentially circulation and a new entrance, hugs a former masonry schoolhouse designed in 1894 by C.B.J. Snyder—New York’s go-to school architect at the time,” writer Audrey Wachs notes. “The addition, clad in a perforated steel scrim and tucked carefully into the north wall, lightens the school’s heavy red-brick facade without compromising its classical symmetry.” The project will be complete in the late spring of 2018.
