Isidore Newman School

Early Childhood Center
New Orleans
Isidore Newman School commissioned Waggonner & Ball to design a 150 student early childhood center. Building on their award-winning new lower school complex for pre-kindergarten through 5th graders, completed in 2003, the new facility will house infants through 4 year olds. Designed as a cloistered building that forms a protected play yard, the ten classrooms are grouped in twos to form a series of “houses” that blend into the neighborhood and recall New Orleans’ predominant and vernacular shotgun-style residences. 
The firm is also designing improvements to the athletic facilities at the school. The Manning Athletic Complex, which honors football legend Archie Manning and his two sons Peyton and Eli, who are graduates of Newman, will have an addition to its existing bleachers, a new concessions and rest room facility, a new playing field and a halftime and rally plaza.
