The Agnes Irwin School, Rosemont, PA
The Agnes Irwin School is a K-12 all-girls private school. The new 83,000 square foot facility replaced an outdated and undersized gymnasium and dining room with a LEED Silver Certified building, specifically designed with the pedagogical culture of the school in mind. By humanely connecting each student to her school community and to her environment, the project thoughtfully composed indoor and outdoor spaces on the School’s tight site.
Environmental responsibility, energy efficiency and green design are integral parts of the project. Natural light and views permeate a design that creates a feeling of openness between interior and exterior spaces. Material selections, water conservation, acoustics and color have been carefully considered to create an interior environment that is healthy, durable and beautiful. The result is a campus that serves as a teaching tool to inspire the AIS community and a symbol of the School’s commitment to environmental responsibility.
Project completed as a senior architect while at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.
