nurturing exploration and learning
S2 sees the design and planning of educational facilities as a way to create inspiring spaces for learning, teaching and socializing. Great design should foster an environment that nurtures exploration, enlightenment and critical thinking.
We have a variety of education sector work ranging from primary education to post secondary institutions. Our project experience with classrooms, computer and science labs, student centers, libraries and administration requirements broadens our understanding of how to effectively integrate these critical elements into the design and how they can work together to make a functional, effective and engaging space.
At S2 we realize that educational environments need to be flexible in support of changing academic needs and future growth and expansion. We also take into consideration additional design elements of a facility such as performance and athletic venues and nonacademic uses of the facilities that centre on the creation of community and social engagement. Whether the project scope is new construction or the modernization of an existing building, we are committed to creating new and innovative learning environments.
Whether the project scope is new construction or the modernization of an existing building, we are committed to creating new and innovative learning environments and we work in collaboration with our clients, stakeholders and end users to design and deliver enduring educational spaces and buildings that promote positive learning experiences, thoughtful environmental considerations and long term viability.
