Stratford School - Hollywood

Client: Stratford Schools

Scope: Renovation

Size: 53,000 SF

Completion: 2016

Project Manager: Mark Hembree, AIA, LEED AP


Stratford Schools, a very successful Northern California private school, teamed up with Berliner Architects to design a new private school in Hollywood – their first school in the burgeoning LA private school market. The existing 53,000 square foot building was renovated to house Pre-K to 8th grade students. Colorful window surrounds were added to give new branding to the building and add a new energy to the adjoining community. In order to meet pro forma enrollment numbers, dedicated exits were added to a mezzanine level for safe exiting of students in Kindergarten–second grade.

The success of the first school in a new market is crucial and the Hollywood campus will provide a solid foundation for future growth of Stratford Schools in the Los Angeles area.
