Compact School Design
So what happens when you need a school that can accomodate 30+ children doing just about every type of activity and learning style and only have one medium sized space to do all of it? I came across a great webpage that showed a Primary (Elementary) School Design in London that uses space and furniture design to its full potential. Not only does the space function great, it seems to have just the right amount of bright colors contrasted with the white walls and ceilings. The main room is designed in a way that it becomes a large multi-purpose space used for small group learning, independent study, lectures or flexible learning stations.
Another thing that I love to see is the design sketches leading up to the final design. Everything in this space seems to be multi-functional and the space is maximized - even the cabinets act as both magnet boards and white boards!
