With the Robin Hood Foundation and Uncommon Schools as development partners, Type A Projects principals led a team of architects, engineers and contractors through the transformation of a severely dilapidated building into a cutting-edge educational facility in service to 700 public school students. Though beloved by the Bedford Stuyvesant community, the structure had become derelict and dangerous due to years of neglect. Given the state of the edifice, the project required a heavily hands-on approach during design and construction. As co-developers, Type A Projects principals led Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Pentagram Design though a complicated design process, integrating their creative visions into one comprehensive and high caliber design package. Our team managed an exhaustive construction process that required daily responsiveness, yielding an inspiring facility with 29 classrooms, music rooms, art studios, a gymnasium, and rooftop play spaces.
