Ethical Culture Fieldston School, Design Studios
A full basement renovation at Ethical Culture Fieldston School (ECFS) creates new instructional spaces for architecture, engineering, and graphics classes.
The renovation reconfigures an underused basement into a luminous 8,000 SF hub of interconnected makerspaces. New design studios, a print center, a computer lab, and offices support the design and science classes that encourage students to ideate, design, and create their own projects.
The full interior renovation includes new interior finishes, millwork, furniture, lighting, technology infrastructure, and mechanical systems. The bright new Design Studios are full of tools and materials for a range of hands-on, active lessons.
ECFS is a co-educational, independent school on the wooded Fieldston Campus in the Bronx. This project follows the success of our transformative student-centered renovation of Tate Library and was concurrent with the new Student Commons.
