Rockport Montessori

Rockport, Maine

Purposely eschewing an institutional image, this two-story building masquerades its considerable 13,000 square foot size through carefully scaled massing, textured shingles and board siding, and residential elements. 150 students and staff are within the 8 classrooms, library, art room, and common space. The design incorporated a school library that was given a prominent and symbolic location adjacent to the central atrium. This facility was awarded “Best New Building” by the regional Chamber of Commerce during the year of its completion.
