St. Luke’s School (SLS) shares a historically preserved West Village block with the Church of St. Luke in the Fields and the beloved St. Luke in the Fields Garden. ABA’s project involved a 17,000 sf, two-story addition to an existing three-story building. The new spaces include a 4,000 sf gymnasium, classrooms, and offices.  The structural system of the addition works independently from that of the original building below. Eight new “supercolumns” thread through the existing building to bedrock, supporting giant trusses at the east and west sides.
