As the first phase implementation of a comprehensive campus Master Plan, Noble and Greenough School undertook the daunting task of renovating and expanding their dining facility housed in the iconic Castle, designed by architect Henry Hobson Richardson in 1890, and the surrounding heritage site designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. With extensive experience in historical landscape treatments and their site sensitive design approach, Towers|Golde created a seamless transition between the old and new, developing new programmatic spaces and enhancing the rugged character of the site.
The site work included new vehicular access for maintenance, deliveries, and fire truck access, as well as new parking for the Castle expansion. The planting plan, inspired by the native woodland, was critical to healing the construction disturbance and reinforcing the prominence of the Castle.
