Beyer Blinder Belle
MNLA collaborated with Beyer Blinder Belle on The Masters School’s first comprehensive campus master plan for its 96 acre campus. An exhaustive, investigative effort that involved the collaboration with a multitude of campus stakeholders produced a long term vision that will guide the campus into a more attractive and sustainable future that supports and furthers the academic and social lives of students, faculty and staff.
A more efficient pedestrian and vehicular circulation network was established that satisfied functional requirements for drop off, delivery and parking while reinforcing important open space connections and the desire for a pedestrian first campus experience. The plan also brought education to the outdoors with a series of learning environments integrated into the rolling landscape with informal gathering nodes, a stepped seating terrace overlooking a garden landscape, and woodland paths providing students a setting immersed in its surroundings.
