Nichols MSIT by Architectural Resources

Design Brief

Project Location: Buffalo, NY

A|r has led the design team on a number of major projects at the Nichols School campus including greenspace and site circulation reconfiguration, athletic field redevelopment, and design and construction of the new Math, Science, & IT Building.

The new building design blends together the school’s mission of academic excellence and environmental sustainability. The unique design maximizes daylighting throughout the building. The long east-west axis, coupled with an intricately detailed system of louvers and overhangs, maximizes day-lighting while managing solar heat gain. A green roof, rain garden, energy saving MEP systems, low VOC finishes, and efficient building envelope are all incorporated into the design.

State of the art academic spaces are bordered by student computer alcoves, resource libraries and study areas creating a dynamic educational experience.

This project received a design Honor Award from the Buffalo/WNY Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
