Cambridge, Massachusetts

Harvard Divinity School
Swartz Hall

Built in 1911, Swartz Hall is the center of academic, administrative, and student life at the Harvard Divinity School, the first nonsectarian theological institution in the United States. In 2010, ABA/Annum completed a master plan that assessed existing conditions and program needs, established a preservation approach, and developed a phased plan for renovation and expansion. In the first project following the master plan, ABA/Annum renovated several classrooms in Swartz Hall, introducing new technology and flexible furnishings to accommodate traditional and emerging teaching methodologies.

Brooks School
Center for the Arts

The Brooks School, a coeducational independent school, places the arts at the core of its mission to foster a warm, close-knit community on its 270-acre campus. ABA/Annum’s design for a new Center for the Arts brings the visual and performing arts programs together, placing them at the heart of the residential campus to a space where the entire school community can gather, learn, and bond.
