St. Paul's School Arts

Ann Beha Architects was chosen to develop selected projects from St. Paul’s School’s Master Plan. Projects emphasized community and the arts, focusing on renovation of existing 20th century buildings, a strategy both sustainable and economical. The renovated Crumpacker Building provides a new home for the school’s art gallery, its permanent art collection, and new art studio classrooms. The gallery level includes a reception area, and an enlarged mezzanine unifies the space. The lower level contains studio classrooms and a collections storage area. The accessible collections continue the visual arts department’s innovative use of their existing works for research and study.

The renovated Moore building provides a new home for the visual arts on campus with a new addition to house sculpture. The existing 11,500 gsf structure was fully renovated and a new 1,500 gsf steel-framed addition constructed on the east side, housing a total of eight new studio classrooms. Floor to ceiling curtain wall provides ample light for the new studio spaces, and a radiant floor system offers comfort and low maintenance. The roof of the addition can be used as a sculpture terrace and outdoor teaching space. The lower level is primarily 3D studio spaces, including ceramics and welding.
