Epiphany Early Learning and Community Center

Client: Epiphany School
Location: Dorchester, MA
Size: 12,150 SF

Founded in 1997, Epiphany is a full-service school for children of economically-disadvantaged families in Boston, combining strong academics with personal support. studioMLA Architects designed the new building to harmonize with the surrounding residential neighborhood. This was achieved by designing a sensitive courtyard entry, maintaining viewshed, and ensuring compatibility with new and historic architecture. The outdoor play space was designed for the Center’s infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. The play area includes trike tracks, play hills, open lawn fields, a space for water play, gardening boxes, and a greenhouse to support the educational curriculum.
