Short Hills, New Jersey
A new Arts and Science Center for a progressive independent school features a lawn courtyard and rain gardens to connect the campus to an existing teaching wetland. Between existing buildings a series of pathways ramble through native shade trees, understory shrubs and groundcovers to reinforce the ecological continuity of the woodland campus. Existing concrete paths were saw cut and reused as linear pavers. Large trees that were removed for the new buildings were milled on site to create benches.
