A space for growth.


Established in 1922, Cranbrook Schools have a celebrated history of instilling in their students the ability to think critically. Undertaking their first major capital project in decades, the educational community built a new campus where girls feel challenged but supported as they grow.

As the architect and engineer of record, we worked closely with Cranbrook and the design architect to understand their vision of a school that employs modern technological tools and sustainable design principles.

    Tailoring the Solution

    A sustainable center for learning.

    The single-story, 47,000 SF facility is structured into three grade-designated “clusters” serving 200 students in grades six through eight. Each cluster is home to its own science lab and classrooms for math, English, history, and language studies, along with creative areas dedicated to dance, choral music, and drama. Shared spaces include a gymnasium, locker room, library, dining hall, and a workout facility.

    In line with Cranbrook’s vision of a sustainable facility, our engineering-driven solution features: utilization of natural light in 75% of the space; refrigerants and HVAC systems that minimize the emission of ozone-depleting compounds; and water savings exceeding 40%.
