The 60 Main renovation enhanced and embraced the historic and residential character of the campus and creates a community dining space that is filled with natural light, fostering openness and connectedness — a hallmark of the Miss Porter’s School community. The interior spaces are inviting, open, flexible, durable and, most notably, inclusive, reflecting the important ways in which the facilities reflect the values of Miss Porter’s School.

 

Off of the lobby is a student meeting space, faculty and student mailrooms, new bathrooms, and an elevator, enabling the dining facility and servery to be ADA accessible. Downstairs, the project includes a redesigned entrance in the rear of the building, connecting to a flexible lobby area that serves as a “student commons.”

An addition has been added to the dining room to enable the entire school to sit together during sit-down dinners, a beloved Porter’s tradition. The renovation of the dining facility honors the history of the building while creating a contemporary dining space with seating for up to 400 and creates a servery that will improve flow at busy mealtimes.

We undertook the services of Centerbrook Architects & Planners, a firm with over four decades of academic project experience and O&G Industries, who oversaw the building and construction services. O&G has previously worked on our campus, completing the renovations to the Grist Mill, home of our Office of Admission. O&G has also completed projects at schools such as Taft and the Gunnery and is very familiar with the safety protocols of working on a campus while school is in session. The project was completed in March 2021.
