SCHOOL DISTRICT OF PHILADELPHIA

ADMINISTRATIVE HEADQUARTERS

Philadelphia, PA | 890,000 SF

A five-story former printing facility for the Philadelphia Inquirer was repurposed as the administrative offices of the Philadelphia School District. A newly created interior atrium was cut through the building to provide natural light to the expansive floor plates. A central circulation spine was designed to connect the new Broad and 15th Street entrance lobbies. The glass-enclosed Broad Street entry vestibule provides a transparent and inviting face to the public. Contextually designed fenestration and site landscaping was employed to further establish the building's public identity.
