CATS Academy - New Campus Study

Braintree, Massachusetts

The Master Plan for this new preparatory school undertaken by Beacon studied how to create a thriving and coherent academic campus on an 8 acre site, using as a basis an existing residential hospital. The plan called for a central visual axis as an organizing idea, and augments the main academic and administrative building with new dormitories. The major site feature is a hill with a 40 foot drop on the south side of the campus, and new logical and intuitive wayfinding was needed. The plan enforces sight lines and axial coordination in support of proposed program elements, and created interstitial spaces and groupings of buildings.
