Stephen Gaynor School
Performing Arts Center

The Stephen Gaynor School and Ballet Hispanico are existing, separate institutions that collaborated on the commission of a new 12-story, 50,000 sf building on West 90th Street in Manhattan. The intent of this project is to provide discrete and highly specific spaces for each owner within a shared envelope.

The Gaynor School is a private elementary and middle school for children with learning difficulties, and inhabits the first seven floors, including the gym/cellar. The Ballet expanded their existing facility from their building on 89th Street to include the top three floors above the Gaynor school.

The Gaynor School theater space seats 300, with state-of-the-art lighting and audiovisual systems. Retractable seating allows for more flexible use for other events, including a supplementary service to the gymnasium for soccer practice.
