Buffalo Public School #17 by Architectural Resources

Design Brief

Project Location: Buffalo, NY

As part of the billion dollar Buffalo Public Schools Reconstruction Project, A|r provided additions and comprehensive renovations to Public School 17 - Early Childhood Learning Center. The new Main Street Entry addition provides an inviting and safe entry for students, faculty and visitors. The former blank façade on the West Delevan Avenue side of the school has been dramatically transformed into an attractive composition with large cafeteria windows fronting on the street. Activity in the cafeteria enlivens the urban streetscape and students are afforded bucolic views of historic Forest Lawn across the street. The design palette of slate, metal and glass are used to compliment existing building materials in each of the two contemporary additions.
