Champlain Valley Union High School



Hamilton City Neighbors was growing… because its students were growing up… and they needed a middle and high school to carry them along.  Under the leadership of Hamilton City Neighbors Charter School administration and Isackson Design Group, Kann Partners joined the team to renovate a Baltimore City school building.  With limited funding, the good bones of the school building mostly remained in place with a few new operational changes for entry, ADA, access and development for outdoor amphitheater.


Color.  Intimate spaces.  Places to feel free to express your urging questions and answers.  City Neighbors’ philosophy and goal is to design spaces where students WANT to be, not where they have to be.

Interior design by Carol Currotto on the Kann Partners team supported the project goals through bold and new uses for materials and color.
