Architects unveil final plans for new Sandy Hook Elementary School

A rendering of the new Sandy Hook Elementary school created by the architectural firm, Svigals Partners. The firm says there will be three classroom wings, two of which are 2-stories, that extend like fingers of an open hand on the site. Separating each one are three courtyards. Overlooking the central courtyard from the second floor are two breakout spaces - imagined as tree houses to create an alternate learning environment for students.
