Thurgood Marshall Academy

New York, NY

IBI Group ▪ Gruzen Samton's innovative design solution for this 750-student middle and high school facility involved constructing a six-story structure within the shell of an historic three-story building. Working with a very small site footprint, our team centered classrooms around a common circulation space on each floor. Because of the building’s significance in the Harlem community, the project team worked particularly closely with area residents, the New York City Department of Education, and the New York City School Construction Authority addressing the concerns of all groups.
