Riverdale Country School

A short walk from the Hudson River in the Bronx, Riverdale Country School offers a quiet break from the hustle of New York. Home to students, teachers, and members of the community, the replacement of their existing 18,000 sf Perkins Building houses several programmatic elements including the 200-seat theater, classrooms, staff offices, cafeteria, and various multipurpose spaces. Each space in the building is viewed as both a learning opportunity and a performance venue. Interactive Audio Video systems in the classrooms, as well as acoustically absorptive treatments in the spaces create an environment that teachers can comfortably instruct their students with intuitively designed educational tools.
