Brunswick School Edwards Campus Master Plan

Founded in 1902, the Brunswick School is one of the most prestigious preparatory academies in New England. With buildings scattered throughout Greenwich, Connecticut, the private institution hired SOM to design a master plan for a new central campus. The 104-acre wooded site would contain facilities for pre-kindergarten through middle school students, along with athletic venues for the high school.

Among the most important planning goals were establishing a distinct identity, creating a campus green, and retaining trees, as well as reconciling vehicular, pedestrian, and open space requirements. Particular challenges included protecting wetlands on the site and orienting the buildings in a way that mitigates noise and visual impacts from a nearby regional airport. The master plan was finished in 2006, and since then, SOM has completed a number of buildings on the new campus.
