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.
