To accommodate a growing enrollment, F.A. Day Middle School in Newton, MA, engaged HMFH to design a building expansion. The additions and renovations added six classrooms, expanded the cafeteria with a more efficient layout, and better accommodated administrative offices and other support spaces with new finishes and safety upgrades.

Day is on a very tight site, set in a residential neighborhood. The site circulation is such that one arrives at the “back” of the building. HMFH’s design for an addition provided a new, welcoming and secure entrance to the school that houses the administrative and student services suite and creates a sense of identity for the students, teachers, and the neighborhood.
