This charter school is a new 7 story red masonry veneer facility facing the Jerome Ave elevated rail line in the East Tremont neighborhood. Seton Brilla charter will serve 800 students, accommodate grades K-8 and feature separate ground floor entrances for the elementary and middle schools. The student dining is located on the ground floor and the double height gymnatorium is on the 7th floor immediately below the semi-enclosed outdoor 4000 SF playroof. The plan is organized around an “L” shaped corridor maximizing light and air to the general and specialized classrooms. There was extensive and meticulous coordination to achieve the various acoustical requirements as a result of the elevated rail to the exterior and the specialized interior program.
