K-12 Education, The Arts, Renovations + Additions

This mixed-use facility serves as the home for the performing arts, athletics and wellness education at the center of Winsor’s historic campus. The project features a new 515-seat theater, the school’s main assembly space, as well as major athletic and recreation facilities, including a two-court gymnasium, squash courts, and physical education spaces. Other program elements include rehearsal and teaching areas for drama, dance, music, and health and wellness.


The new building brings together program types often segregated - arts and athletics - to encourage leadership, collaboration, and creative risk taking. Nearly every space - from music rehearsal to dance to fitness to costume shop to engineering maker space - is given presence in the light-filled corridor. Students proficient in one discipline or activity will see others and may broaden their interests.
