Academy Square


Academy Square, located at 33 Plymouth Street, Montclair, NJ, is an innovative adaptive reuse of a former school building. Situated in the heart of the town’s central business district, Academy Square is within walking distance of restaurants, shops, the library, churches, and a variety of residential properties. Originally a single family home, the building was converted to the Kimberley School in 1906 and then was occupied by the Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School from 1950 until 2004. The building’s name is a nod to this history.

The conversion of the building to office space kept the beautiful bones of the original structure intact while renovating the interior areas into unique office spaces of varying sizes. The design team made certain to retain or reuse beautiful architectural features of the building. Chalkboards were used for building signage, classroom doors were repurposed as restroom doors, and ceiling rafters originally made from shipping crates were transformed into picture frames for vintage photos. Enhancements to the building included making it ADA compliant, and adding lobbies, an elevator and terraces.

The building is Gold LEED certified from the US Green Building Council. It is also the dedicated gallery for Studio Montclair, an association of local artists. Academy Square provides a work environment that offers a unique blend of historic charm and modern amenities.
