The new Sandy Hook School welcomed its first students in August 2016. This stunningly unique architectural design achieved all of the goals established, resulting in a welcoming and exceptionally cheerful learning environment. Svigals + Partners once again utilized their signature process, developing close relationships with the teachers, children, parents and members of the school’s community to learn the needs and desires to make this project a success.

Energy Select 28 and Energy Select 40 were used for the exterior glazing, depending on the elevation. Both are very neutral in appearance, and provide high visible light transmission. The glazing for the building envelope was critical not only for the purpose of energy efficiency and aesthetics, but also to meet the desire to “connect” to the outdoor environment.
