Blair Academy http://www.blair.edu/ is a private school located on 435 hilltop acres adjacent to the Village of Blairstown, New Jersey. Founded in 1848 the school currently has an enrollment of 435 students, the majority of which are full time residence during the school year.
When Blair Academy was in need of additional dormitory facilities they enlisted HQW Architects to design a facility that would not only be state-of-the-art in terms of functionality, but would feel residential in scale and have an architectural harmony with the older buildings on campus. The result was Annie Hall, home to 40 female students and four faculty members. Constructed of masonry and steel with a stone and brick exterior and a slate roof, the new dormitory is one of the more prominent buildings on the Blair Campus.
