Callard House Admissions Office
Millbrook School | Millbrook, New York
Built in 1935 as a faculty residence, Callard House eventually became the home of the Admissions and Alumni Development offices at Millbrook School. To accommodate the school’s continuing growth, VMA developed a design approach that reorganized space for the Admissions Office within the existing structure and created new offices in an addition for Alumni Development. New finishes and furniture were hand-picked by VMA. The result was a more efficient working environment that met the budget and retained the comfortable residential character essential for welcoming prospective students, parents and alumni.
Given Callard’s central location on campus, we carefully chose the scale of its addition so as not to overpower Millbrook’s core of unimposing, historic buildings, and used traditional building materials and techniques to ensure a seamless integration into the campus aesthetic.
VMA also gave great attention to surrounding landscape in the new design, which included creation of a memorial garden to honor Millbrook students who fell in active military service.
