Connecticut School Earns Award

The award received by KG+D Architects is the AIA WHV Honor Award for their collaboration with the Eagle Hill School, in Greenwich, Conn. A new community room replaced a limiting theater with a 350-seat multipurpose space that can utilized for assemblies, events and performances as well as indoor recess and athletic activities. The school’s program is specialized for students with language-based learning disabilities and utilizes an approach based in the close collaboration between students, parents and teachers. As such, a multipurpose space to house this community was essential to the school’s programming.
