Stevenson, MD – The S/L/A/M Collaborative, a Glastonbury, Conn.-based national architecture firm, recently completed programming, design, and documentation for a 27,800sf renovation and addition of the Five Arts & Student Center at St. Timothy’s School, a private all-girls high school in Stevenson, Md. Construction is estimated to be completed in December 2018. SLAM is also providing structural engineering, landscape architecture, and cost estimating services.

The former, two-story Hannah More Arts Center, now named the Five Arts & Student Center, will undergo a renovation including a new contemporary façade and an additional floor to the structure.

Other significant upgrades to the facility will include a refurbished 320-seat theater featuring new seats, lighting, and A/V, a full-service Health and Wellness Center, additional classroom space for the English department, and an expanded 1,000sf art gallery.

The courtyard located between the Five Arts & Student Center and dining facility will be redesigned with new ornamental trees, benches, and new pavers, creating a more welcoming space to relax in between classes in the outdoors.

“We are pleased to partner with St. Timothy’s in this important enhancement project that will provide students, faculty, and staff with a quality arts, academic, and student activity space on campus that matches the high-quality educational experience currently afforded students,” says Richard Connell, FAIA, SLAM principal-in-charge. “The space transformation will also benefit the public through a new art gallery space, where art by students, the community, and visiting artists will be exhibited.”
