New Hampton School is an independent boarding school for grades 9-12 located in New Hampshire’s lakes region. OMR prepared a Campus Master Plan which integrates the school mission, program needs, site improvements, and facility upgrades into one document. The outcome is a multi-phased work plan that will transform the campus and create distinct academic departments.

The initial phase was the construction of the new 28,000 sf math and science building. Located prominently along Main Street in New Hampton, this new building has become an integral part of a series of buildings known as “Academic Row” and acts as a gateway to the inner campus. Designed to harmonize with the existing character of brick and granite facades, the building is sensitive in scale and materials to its context.

The interior is efficient and well organized, and is open and naturally lit to promote student and faculty interaction. A two-story science gallery displays math and science concepts, with interactive exhibits that monitor energy use within the building and teach sustainable/environmental science to the students and visitors.
