Rogers Environmental Magnet School was designed to demonstrate ecological stewardship. Set within a remediated brownfield, the design integrates building forms with natural terrain to preserve the character of the site. Roof gardens flow into an existing knoll, forming the outdoor classrooms. Boardwalks connect the parking / drop off area through created wetlands to the school, gathering areas, and observation nodes for ecological study.
CR3 Studio collaborated with TSKP Studio from project inception to completion. Our professional services included conceptual landscape design and coordination through contract documentation including State and Local permitting and the bidding process.
We worked with the Client, Town of Stamford, and the design team & contractors to ensure the project fulfilled the design goals and Owner needs.
Winner of the 2010 Best Sustainable Design Project, 15th Annual CRE Awards, the campus is a gem resulting from a collaborative and adaptive design team which merges the built and natural environment into a dynamic landscape of learning.
