As part of a new master plan, Imai Keller Moore has designed a new 16,000 square foot Meeting & Performance Hall for The Fenn School, a school for 300 boys from grades four to nine in Concord, Massachusetts.
The school is at the edge of the historic center of town and has a clearly recognizable architectural scale and vocabulary. IKM has developed a new planning model for the school. Our approach has been informed by archetypes of New England planning and building, such as the town green with fields beyond and the traditional meeting house with belltower, while incorporating elements unique to Fenn, such as the Senior Seats which wrap the Meeting Hall.
The project includes a main performance hall with a set building shop and drama classroom, as well as music teaching spaces and bandroom. Sustainable approaches to energy use such as natural ventilation and lighting were also incorporated in the design.
