Brentwood College School is a campus on the water, in a tall forested inlet facing Mt. Baker. The views over the water at sunrise are unparalleled; rowing regattas a rite of passage. Seen from the water, the campus responds to the rocky shore — a natural rhythm of building and green space along High Street, its academic axis.
hcma was engaged to replace the aging William T. Ross Academic Centre with new, flexible, state-of-the-art learning spaces that realize the independent school’s vision of the future, including the capacity to serve a growing school population.
The new academic building will have one interior central space as social heart, collaborative and breakout spaces have access to views and natural light, prioritized views for admissions and commons to the inlet and Mt Baker, and integrated spaces for administration.
