By inserting a strong circulation spine, PKSB radically reorganized the Allen-Stevenson School from an ad hoc collection of educational spaces located in five different structures into a coherent school plan. The new circulation was made possible by the insertion of rear yard additions that link the buildings which are located on two separate streets.

The design provides separate floors for each of the school divisions each with its own classrooms, offices, resource spaces and town centers. The Town Centers replace the twisted corridors and provide large open areas for use by the surrounding classrooms. The centers serve as multi-purpose areas where students can work in small groups outside the classroom or larger groups of several classes can meet for special programs. Always bustling with activity, the centers foster spontaneous interchanges between students and faculty.

The private day school serves 400 students ranging in age from kindergarten to grade 9. Located in the Upper East Side Historic district, the project required a well coordinated effort with the Landmarks Preservation Commission and the local community board.
