Project description: The new British International School of Chicago is located at the intersection of Wells Street and 9th Street in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood. The prestigious private international school serves students varying in age from Pre-K through high school. The building spans two stories, includes a basement, and is part of the Roosevelt Collection mixed-use project.

The educational facility houses over 50 new state-of-the-art classrooms, seminar rooms, and computer learning labs. The facility includes a gymnasium that can accommodate three practice basketball courts, volleyball, and badminton, while also being able to convert to an auditorium for school presentations. The lower level of the building houses a cafeteria, a weight room, music rooms, a design technology center, and other student amenities. The design focuses on integrating interior spaces with outdoor venues. There is a rooftop park that includes walking paths, planting areas, and turf that can accommodate large gatherings or events. Additionally, a turf soccer field and an on-grade park across 9th Street provide students and local residents with a connection to nature.
