Education is an integral part of life. Students spend a lot of time within their institution during their time of study, and their academic life is often associated with the schools and spaces they study at. As such, education design architects have to find the right balance between space and user experience, considering the architectural space's ergonomics.

Designing a school or education facility is more than just creating functional elements. Schools should be places which inspire growth and improvement rather than instill stress and anxiety. As a result, other design elements are vital to creating a conducive space that can help foster learning in a healthy manner.

Conducive environment

First and foremost, every school and classroom should be conducive to aiding the teaching and learning process. The facility's design that limits distractions whilst being stimulating enough is essential in creating a conducive learning environment.

Collaborative space

In this current technological era, lectures are different. They do not necessarily follow the traditional model where you see a lecturer in front of a whiteboard or screen with a didactic delivery. Learning can be more engaging and exciting by incorporating break-out discussions or increasing collaboration. This can help increase attention and engagement, thus, improving knowledge retention amongst the students.

Foster connectivity

An essential element to consider when designing an educational space is how students can bond and connect with one another. This helps foster relationships between students and gives them a sense of belonging to the campus. Developing spaces for students to enjoy allows students to unwind and relieve stress.

Incorporating nature

With so much time spent in these institutional buildings, nature can help brighten spaces and allow students and staff to break away from the concrete jungle. Nature or other biophilic elements can help reduce stress and even increase productivity. In addition to green spaces, incorporating natural light into the architectural space is an excellent way to transform a room. Natural sunlight is a sustainable yet practical way to illuminate an area due to its invigorating nature.

From institutional buildings to lecture theatres, our repertoire extends beyond residential and commercial architecture. AR43 Architects are made up of a team of diverse talents that come together to create innovative solutions that will meet the needs of higher learning without compromising on design.
