Schools shape all of our lives. As architects, we look to push the boundaries of design and provide the best learning environments for the development of students – both intellectually and emotionally.
We create flexible and varied learning environments, with social spaces for pupils to share, observe and copy others’ behaviour to support their growth. Our imaginative spaces provide a sense of belonging, ensuring students feel safe and at home. At the same time, they enable teachers to adapt and respond to individual needs.
By connecting our indoor spaces with the outside world, we bring learning outdoors – exposing students to nature and taking them away from technology for different educational experiences.
Our drive for improving schools and further education colleges led us to embark on our latest research project, which explores the impact of the physical environment on pupil and staff wellbeing. The findings from this study inform and guide our education projects.
