The Reece School

The Reece School is designed by  Platt Byard Dovell White Architects, LLP Architects.

The glass screen façade of this school for young children with special needs captures the sun to bring big patches of color into their classrooms. Fit onto a small site, the building also includes offices, a gym, an art room and an outdoor recreational terrace. Tying in with the rhythm and proportions of the adjoining tenements, the school’s lively presence accelerates the revival of its urban neighborhood.

The project received an American Architecture Award from the Chicago Atheneum and a Design Award from the New York State AIA in 2008, as well as a K-12 Educational Facilities Design Award from the Boston Society of Architects/AIA in 2007.
