Hyde Addison Elementary School

Renovation of 40,000 SF of existing historic buildings and addition. The Addition to Hyde Addison Elementary School complex includes 30,000 SF of new space. This space will contain gymnasium multi-purpose space with a basketball court, stage along with music room, health suite, cafeteria, library, 4 classrooms and administrative support. The Addition also connects the two existing Historic Buildings and new space into one Coherent campus grouped around the new building as an Ensemble. The newly building applies a modern Terracotta Rain Screen Panel and Sun Screen Baguette Systems to the historic context setting. The Terracotta Fins systems will be installed vertically. This installation method challenges the common horizontal use of Terracotta Screens. The Addition blends perfectly into historic Georgetown fabric, while standing out as a distinguished contemporary building on its own and has received enthusiasticsupport from the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts.

We are a firm that designs without boundaries. By constantly changing our approach to fit each client and project - our design work is imaginative, responsive and playful. The atelier-style studio is strengthened by dynamic and collaborative relationships between client & consultants.
The building and its immediate surroundings inform and mold a space to create a building that “belongs & responds.” Our designs foster a dialogue between immediate context, as well as with the broader setting. We use sustainable materials and environmentally-conscious systems.
Shinberg.Levinas has earned local, regional, national and international recognition from many sources, including the AIA. The firm’s work has been published in The Plan magazine, Archiworld, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Architectural Record, Interior Design, LeFigaro & internationally distributed books and online architecture and design magazines. We aim high and work hard with devotion to principle and pragmatism.
