Sarah Lawrence College, Heimbold Visual Arts Center, Bronxville, New York

AIA/Westchester/Mid-Hudson Sustainable Design Award
AIA/COTE Top Ten Green Projects
New York Construction Award of Merit

For this college located in a leafy and genteel suburb of New York City, Quennell Rothschild & Partners has completed several inter-related projects including collaboration on the campus master plan.

QRP designed the landscape architecture for the new Heimbold Visual Arts Center. The new building has been tucked into a hill allowing for the creation of a grass-roof plaza that blends seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. The plaza is terraced with dry-laid stone seat walls which allow for students to sit and congregate. The building and site have been LEED certified and incorporate a number of sustainable design elements including the green roof, storm water recycling, water-efficient landscaping, and native plantings. Additionally, the stone used on the plaza walls as well as the building were quarried on site. Quennell Rothschild & Partners served as subconsultants to Ennead Architects for the project.
