Pawtucket, RI – LLB Architects was recognized at the annual AIA Rhode Island Design Awards on Dec. 6 with a prestigious Honor Award for its design of Lincoln School’s STEAM Hub for Girls.

Completed in May 2018 by Shawmut Design and Construction, the addition and renovation project provides interdisciplinary teaching and learning spaces, as well as an art gallery for students and visiting artists. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Architecture, and Mathematics.

The project transformed existing traditional science classrooms into flexible spaces for group collaboration and project-based learning, while making the facilities more sustainable and resilient.

The design of the addition is a visual expression of the school’s mantra ‘where tradition meets innovation.’ The façade features a dramatic glass curtainwall facing the west and 20 vertical fins, or sun shades, spaced in such a way as to create rolling shade as the sun moves.
