The architect was retained by the Yonkers Board of Education to design a one-story, 30,000-square-foot addition for special-education students. The $7 million project consists of both regular and special-education classrooms, offices, a gymnasium, an occupational/physical-therapy room and a large playground.

Two open courts provide the opportunity to open up the classrooms to daylight through the use of clerestory windows. The individual sloping roofs reflect the local residential vernacular in both scale and composition. The colorful interior finishes both engage and energize the children’s imaginations.
