Laura Fitch as project architect for Margo Jones Architects.

In 1991 The Bement School, a private K-8 campus located in the historic center of Deerfield, took on the design of a new classroom building. This red “carriage house” was built with a heavy timber frame and structural, insulated panels. The next building construction project in 1993 involved gutting an existing “barn”, converting the space into a gymnasium, and adding an arts wing. The new Academic Building and the new Arts Wing at The Bement School blend neatly into the historic context of Old Deerfield.
