Choate Rosemary Hall

Wallingford, CT

Bowie Gridley Architects completed a comprehensive master plan for the  400-acre campus of Choate Rosemary Hall, a co-ed boarding and day school enrolling students in grades 9 through 12.
  • The Master Plan study focused on academics, student life, residential life and athletics.
  • Recommendations included improvements for circulation, parking, beautification, and place-making
  • BGA evaluated the need for a new Student Center to provide special amenities and school-wide community space
  • The planning team recommended special accommodations for day students, including new locker areas, a computer study space and vending services, and the relocation of offices to encourage greater interaction.
  • The Student Center concept calls for a landscaped terrace with seating and decorative fountain adjacent to the student commons area, encouraging students and faculty to gather outdoors as well as indoors.
