Lynbrook High School
New Cafeteria, Gym Lobby and Quad
Part of a larger series of improvements being made to Lynbrook High School’s campus, the new Gym Lobby, Café and Quad replace outdated and underutilized spaces with versatile community areas. With a large transparent window wall connecting to the Quad, the Gym Lobby includes a display area, ticket sales and concessions, along with flexible space for various activities, including a high-volume ceiling for cheerleading practice. The new Café includes available seating for 300 and a food court providing several meal options and stations. Three large overhead glass doors open to the new Quad, offering ample space for outdoor dining and group meetings of various sizes. Additionally, the Quad includes a tiered amphitheater-like setting that can be used for drama, school band and orchestra concerts, and other outdoor events, while the Café will accommodate extra-curricular activities, such as movie nights and other major school events.
The three components of this phase of the project form an integral triad, with both buildings utilizing light, transparent curved glass and metal facades. The triad now serves as a welcoming focal point of the new front entrance of the school.
