Billerica, a suburban town northwest of Boston, has quietly reinvented itself in recent years. What began as a 17th-century agrarian town is now a talent pool for the high-tech industry in the greater Boston area, with students earning regional and national accolades in business, robotics, drama, and athletics. We partnered with students, staff, and community members to design a flexible, forward-looking educational environment that matched their myriad achievements and contemporary identity. Now, the town’s largest civic building embodies Billerica’s aspirational commitment to education while honoring its historic civic legacy. The result is a project that has “mined the past and looked to the future,” according to Architectural Record‘s “Schools of the 21st Century” issue.
