“Designing ‘experienced based’ learning spaces “
Mark Ellson, Director, Holmes Miller.
Holmes Miller will present three projects, covering early year’s provision, primary and secondary school buildings, where the project brief and accommodation schedule has been developed to marry with the curriculum and school requirements.
In each case, the building’s presented offer innovative and immersive teaching spaces for pupils and staff, and demonstrate how, through designing to align with the curriculum, more creative solutions can be generated, whilst maintaining value for local authorities and school trusts.
‘More than just classrooms’.
Richard Jobson, Founding Director, Design Engine.
Over recent years the demand within secondary schools to create non specific teaching spaces has grown expotentially. Whilst this has been true within the University Sector for some considerable time it is increasingly apparent that in order to better prepare students in 6th form for life at university there is a need to design and build spaces which allow students more autonomy and responsibility mimicing many of the ‘blended’ learning spaces and study common areas previlant in Universities.
