The same architects that designed the Henry H. Wells Middle School in Brewster, NY, completed another Brewster education building at JFK Elementary School. The project was part of a larger development, a $40 million bond by the Brewster Central School District, to renovate three schools in the district. All completed by the architects at KG+D, JFK Elementary School was transformed into a state-of-the-art learning facility.

The renovations and additions completed on the Elementary School included, “a six-classroom addition that created flexible classrooms, a library addition featuring a stepped reading area, an auditorium renovation that incorporated a moveable wall dividing classroom and theater space and the development of the IDEA Center, which features moveable furniture and bi-fold doors that open to an interior courtyard,” the architects describe.
