Activity-based spaces for primary
and lower secondary school

Both pupils and teachers are faced with a wealth of activities in primary and lower secondary school. This places huge demands on the school’s design and the students’ ability to be flexible. There must be room for academic immersion, for working in large and small groups, for project work and for physical activity and play.

We have broken down school life into five overall learning zones, which we use as a basis for creating spaces that meet the needs of both teachers and pupils.

The five zones are:

Working with the five zones helps us ensure the best possible conditions for success for the activities that most often take place in a school day across all disciplines.

Close dialogue
Working closely with you, we try to understand how your school uses the different zones and to develop a solution that suits your specific needs.

We don’t believe in a one-and-only right way to design environments.
We believe people vary, so schools should vary, too.

Happy staff = happy pupils

This is quite a claim. However, through our extensive work with school environments, we can see that there is something to it. Motivated teachers and staff have a positive effect on pupils. Our evaluations show that a combination of good management and a well-planned interior design concept result in higher employee satisfaction and less absence due to sickness.

When we create good, functional and comfortable environments for your staff and pupils, it improves social interaction and cooperation across teams, disciplines and classes. It may even result in smarter children and higher satisfaction, as experienced at Søndervang School – read this interesting case story here
