Cranbury Elementary School

LOCATION: Norwalk, Connecticut
AREA: 63,740 SF
COMPLETION: August 2023

In November of 2018, Antinozzi Associates was awarded the commission to conduct a Conceptual Design Study for Cranbury Elementary School. The primary goal of this study was to investigate improvements and added space desired by the Board of Education, in order to provide a specific conceptual design and preliminary scope cost estimate in support of a Grant Application submission to the State. In 2020 we were awarded the next phase of this $45M project to provide the architectural design services for a new facility at Cranbury Elementary School.

This project replaces the existing 1959 Cranbury Elementary School with a completely new building on the same site. The new building sits to the west of the existing building, allowing Cranbury Elementary to remain in operation during construction. The school will shift to the new building in Fall 2023, allowing for demolition of the old school and construction of a new ballfield, tennis court, parent drop-off loop and park­ing. The site is a spectacular 31-acre wooded parcel adjacent to Cranbury Park. The new building design by Antinozzi Associates responds to this verdant set­ting with natural materials including cedar and stone quarried in Connecticut, and brings the outside in with sweeping expanses of glass.
