With a 400-year history, the Collegiate School on Manhattan’s upper West Side is the oldest independent school in the United States and one of New York City’s most prestigious private schools.
However, in conceiving a new facility for the school, planners and the school community were focused firmly on the future. Constructed at 301 Freedom Place South, the 11-story building features a sleek glass facade and 180,000 square feet of classroom, athletics, performing arts, library, dining, and administrative space. At night, it glows from within — the light extending outside, where iLight’s new Handrail Lighting System illuminates stairs leading to the front entrance.
