Marriot Hall


Marriot Hall's Senior Circle Entrance

Marriott Hall opened at the beginning of the 2009-2010 academic year. The newest STA building links the traditional lower campus to the upper campus in a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility with breathtaking views of the Cathedral, the Olmsted Woods, and the National Mall. Located at the center of campus, Marriott Hall bridges the Decker Terrace and connects the Lane-Johnson Building with the Ellison Library, the Steuart building, and the Lawrence Pool. The building resulted in a striking and innovative academic building, constructed of glass and bluestone similar to that used in the familiar Lane-Johnston Building which was opened in 1909. The project involved the renovation of the existing Upper School wing and the construction of a 35,000-square-foot extension that provided the School with the classroom, office, and student space needed to meet the demand of today's academic world.

Marriott Hall Wins National Design Awards

St. Albans' newest building is garnering a lot of architectural buzz for its unique design. Since opening in September 2009, there has been much written about the award-winning design of this building.
