We are thrilled that Billerica Memorial High School has been recognized in the 2020 IIDA New England Design Awards, winning both the Education category and the prestigious Best in Show. “This project successfully created strong centers as well as smaller social hubs,” the jury commented. “The use of daylight and volume is impeccable, with strong materiality details and a clean architectural palette.”

“We are incredibly proud that this project—the first public K-12 school in our Northeast practice—has received such an honor,” says Brooke Trivas, principal and practice leader. “It embodies the continuation of our firm’s 84-year legacy of designing for education, and it raises the bar for all of us to deliver excellence in future-ready education, design, and sustainability.”
