Thornton Academy Dormitory

Under construction.
Completion expected 2017


The Thornton Academy dormitory village master plan identified four dormitories to be constructed on the main campus along Saco's Main Street. The first two dormitories have been built and occupied for seven years. This third dormitory is a 22,700-s.f., two-story building that can accommodate 52 students and four dorm parents' families in separate apartments. Like the previous two dormitories, it is designed in a style reminiscent of the shingle style vernacular. The orientation of the building along Main Street creates a safe, common access point, protecting the privacy of the families and students residing in the dormitory village. The building has been designed with breaks along the length of the building including changes in wall planes to create residential-scale building blocks and porches at the apartments. Contrasting paint colors and window accent colors along the façade further emphasize the residential massing elements. This latest building will be ready in June 2017.
