Kids learn better when they’re comfortable. We design for engaged, uninterrupted learning. 


Those who can recall hot summer afternoons in fanless demountables, or wet winter lunch breaks on wind-blown verandahs can attest to the fact that kids learn better when they’re comfortable. We design spaces for engaged, uninterrupted learning. Elements like hydronic floor heating and indirect evaporative airconditioning control temperature fluctuations; eliminating recycled air creates a healthier environment; soft edges connect the structure to the external landscape, which has myriad benefits including passive surveillance and adaptability of the space for alternative uses. Repeat commissions from long-term clients is indicative of our excellence in education-orientated architectural design. Key to the success of our projects is working closely with students, teachers and the community to create a sense of ownership over the final design.
