Hunter's Point Campus | Queens, NY, Project Manager, 2013.
The new Hunter’s Point Campus accommodates 1,071 students and comprises an Intermediate School, a High School, District 75, and shared facilities. The site for the 145,000-square-foot school is a previously-undeveloped parcel of the Hunters Point South Development in Queens, now being reformed as part of the City’s rezoning and redevelopment project. The School complies with the requirements of the New York City Green Schools Guide. FXFOWLE’s design creates distinct learning environments that allow each program to function independently, while sharing common resources. The orientation and configuration of space capitalizes on light, air, and views. Major assembly spaces are clustered in the southwest wing of the building, while the auditorium is located as an object in the center of the third and fourth floors, straddling the I.S. and H.S. The project’s top floor is literally its crowning feature, with dining spaces located adjacent to a large outdoor terrace, affording sweeping views of Manhattan and the East River.
