McDonogh School Finney Middle School

Owing Mills, MD

Bowie Gridley Architects was selected to provide design services for McDonogh School’s new Finney Middle School. The middle school curriculum was developed to incorporate the latest trends in 21st century learning. The existing building could not accommodate the desired program and flexibility of spaces needed to support the curriculum. The new three-story Georgian style building will be built on the existing site and was designed to reflect the scale of the adjacent buildings. The new middle school will have a two-story presence on the senior quad and will reveal a third lower level to the north as the grade falls away. The building will house collaborative classrooms organized in grade pods, a dedicated library, arts, and maker spaces.
