Holy Trinity Montessori School
Chazen collaborated with the project design team to provide full design, engineering, ecological, environmental, landscape architecture, planning and permitting for a new 12,000 square-foot school located in the City of Nashville, Tennessee. The overall campus layout was based upon the fundamental design principal of “peace, knowledge and faith” with a holistic approach to learning.
Multi-level garden terraces, thousands of feet of retaining walls, box culverts, walking paths, and gathering areas were incorporated into the site design in order to promote different learning aspects into the student’s daily life experience. The site layout avoided wetland resources, maximized buffer areas, and preserved habitat by restricting site disturbance areas and maximizing open space.
