Renovating an entire district takes experienced planning and execution. Mr. Hamlin, Managing Principal of HDG, was District Architect and owner representative for this district wide renovation of 14 schools for the City of Albany. The coordination with consultants for all disciplines led to the success of this venture, including two award winning school buildings.
EXTERIOR & INTERIOR
With Envision Architects, HDG's Shawn Hamlin, RA, AIA led and completed the renovation, design and expansion to the award winning Philip Schuyler Achievement Academy. Along with the new addition, the Main Lobby was restored and modernized to reflect the railroad history of the City of Albany.
Philip Schuyler Achievement Academy received The Preservation Merit Award for the architects successfully blending the original 1875 building with a new addition.
William S. Hackett Middle School received the Excellence in Historic Preservation award. This school included a breathtaking restoration of the 1930 auditorium, marble floors, and a magnificent uncloaked stained glass ceiling.
