Ursuline Academy’s first construction project in 40 years, this major addition enhances the school’s assembly and athletic capabilities and provides a new campus entry from the main parking lot. The new reception hall and performance gymnasium blend with the architectural style of the original building, Merici Hall. The reception hall links the existing and new gymnasiums with the new support areas, which include offices, locker rooms, fitness center, training room and storage.
Ursuline Academy is currently embarking on another phase of improvements with M+H Architects. Design services for this phase include a new building addition that will link an existing two story building with an adjacent, existing three story building, providing improved accessibility to both via a new elevator in this addition. This addition has the potential to house additional class space for the choral, band, dance and science programs and provide a student life center. This is a challenging and rewarding process for Ursuline as they continue to develop and enhance their established campus.
