The Hill School | Pottstown, PA
In a comprehensive approach to The Hill School’s campus improvements, we identified forty projects to address a variety of anticipated needs over a ten-year time span.
The entry sequence, circulation and reinforcement of the pedestrian core was one major organizing component of the plan. To give the campus identity and clear edges, we suggested a strong landscaped property line reinforced with a low fence. Expanding the academic facilities in the center of the core campus around pedestrian-only quads was suggested, which would create clear zones of use on the campus with perimeter vehicular circulation and parking.
A shortage of faculty housing was another key issue; we proposed an expansion of their core campus to provide for new housing as well as renovations to on-dorm faculty housing.
A proposed expansion and improvement of the school’s athletic facilities included new turf fields, a reorientation of the baseball field, construction of a new football stadium, a tailgate pavilion, and a stronger connection and access to their golf course. The indoor athletic facilities were also earmarked for expansion.
