It’s important to think about the interior design in terms of the specific needs of both teachers and learners - creating a multi-functional environment tailored to dedicated purposes; for meetings, for play, for group work... Colours and materials play a major role in creating an inspiring atmosphere in which students are increasingly shaping their own lessons.
Great, spacious play rooms which recognise the principles of order and fundamental well-being, provide the ideal framework for students to develop and flourish. The vocational school of Embelgasse in Vienna is a perfect example of this. The students enter the classrooms on the second floor directly, via a spacious two-storey foyer. Fresh air, light and luscious green shades permeate the building from the Hofgarten (courtyard garden/playground.) The classrooms are transparent towards the communication area - creating a stimulative, collaborative learning arena which features sturdy modern seating made from durable and versatile materials.
