Hampstead Hill Academy Early Learning Center Addition

Baltimore, MD

BKM provided m/e/p design services for this one-story addition of two new pre-kindergarten classrooms for the Early Learning Center. 

Sited within the main school entry court, separate entries were provided to each classroom for the youngest children. A new canopy over the main entrance and a new ramp created an enhanced and accessible entry to the urban school. A green roof was designed to cover the addition, onto which the majority of the classrooms look down. The gray panels of the addition responded to the rich brick of the existing school, while remaining contemporary and simple. Windows of varying transparency wrapped around the addition allowing natural light to fill the classrooms.
