For the new educational buildings projects, architects are using a modern design, involving glass and steel to create spaces with a lot of light and of course resistant and durable. I might say that the students that are learning or will learn in these buildings are pretty lucky fellows cause a new and modern building is not only about the facade, it also has a lot more facilities than the ones that have been built a few decades ago. We present you the latest examples of modern school interiors. How can you create a school, that looks like todays workplaces? With networking, collaboration, creativity, and innovation as keywords.
If all high school, college and university campuses looked like this, attendance rates would skyrocket. Enjoy our collection of 8 Cool High School, College & University Building Designs– their designs may just inspire a whole new generation of innovative architects.
Designed by Holmes Miller, this school is located in UK. According to the architect: “The outstanding new Primary School promotes a locally distinctive and contemporary design solution which is based upon an understanding of South Ayrshire’s rural character – its landscape, settlements and the way in which they interact. Holmes Miller’s sensitive design approach was to design a bespoke new building which would skilfully reconcile the requirements of a thoroughly modern school, while providing facility for the wider community in an architectural language appropriate to its setting.”
Multifunctional learning spaces, colorful interiors and small niches for concentration and contemplation. Rosan Bosch Studio has created an interior design with flexible environments to support a variety of different learning situations. The design supports the school’s pedagogical methods and plays an important role in the daily circle of the school.
Vittra Brotorp has been equipped with flexible learning spaces, inviting gathering places and small niches for concentration and contemplation. Teachers are given the opportunity to provide information to large groups after which the students can work on assignments individually or in small groups in the customized interior. In that way the design leads the school’s educational ideals into practice.
New York’s Public Library’s first full-floor dedicated teen space is situated within Harlem’s landmark Hamilton Grange Branch. The 4,400sf R+L designed space challenges the norms of library design to provide a contemporary, more open, social, technology-rich environment that fully engages neighborhood youth. The Center’s cylindrical glazed media room exposes the physicality of NYPL interactive gaming programs and organizes the spaces around it, including X-Bar computer zone, Highback Reading Lounge, Exam Study Niche, and a day-glo Snack & Chat Niche (a 1st time experimental break from the normal prohibitions), rolling L-bracket Lounge, and tiered book stacks. A bamboo bleacher provides access to street views and acts as both a sunny hang-out zone and large group seating area for live performance and screenings.
Located in Australia, the school was completed in 5 stages starting with Learning Community 1; Administration; and the BER funded Multi-Purpose Hall and Learning community 2. Learning Community 3 together with the Hall extension was the final stage of development at Our Lady of the Southern Cross. It was clear at the outset that this school was going to be different from all others with the focus to move completely away from formal classrooms to a range of spaces for different activities and learning styles in a multi-age environment. Personalised learning, peer-to-peer collaborative learning and team teaching all influenced the architectural design of physical learning spaces. The embedding of technology in the learning space – smart boards, networked and wireless connection to computers hand held devices adds to the flexibility demanded by the curriculum.
Designed by Tectoniques Architects, this complex school is located in 45 Rue Fleury Salignat, 69140 Rillieux-la-Pape, France. The Paul Chevallier school complex is situated in Rillieux-la-Pape, a northern suburb of Lyon. At 5,034 m2, it is an unusually large project; and this indicates the growing attractiveness of the area. The complex currently comprises a nursery school and an elementary school. In 2014, a gym will be added, which will also be available for community activities. The site occupies an entire block, close to the centre of the district.
The two schools are functionally and administratively autonomous. While following on from each other, they make up a continuum, in an overall composition. They are made up of rectangular modules in “V” formations enclosing internal spaces which, in the case of the nursery school, is a garden, and, in that of the elementary school, a patio.
Designed by Abin Design Studio, this amazing school is located in Kolkata, West Bengal, India.This school façade project came to us at a stage when the construction of the 2 academic blocks was already underway. The blocks were rather generic, with 6 floors of classrooms, labs, and other facilities arranged towards the periphery around matching central courtyards. Our brief was to work within these existing parameters to make a school. So we developed a design program in terms of circulation, movement, ventilation, classrooms and other concerns.
Environmentalists and designers John and Cynthia Hardy wanted to motivate communities to live sustainably. Part of that effort was to show people how to build with sustainable materials, namely bamboo. They established the Green School, and its affiliates: the Meranggi Foundation, which develops plantations of bamboo plants through presenting bamboo seedlings to local rice farmers; and PT Bambu, a for-profit design and construction company that promotes the use of bamboo as a primary building material, in an effort to avoid the further depletion of rainforests.
Designed by VERSTAS Architects, Saunalahti School is located in Finland. In the “Future School” educational activities will increasingly take place outside the traditional classroom and introduce new ways of learning. Saunalahti school is a building tailored to support the pedagogical ideas of a forward-looking school. In its operation, the school puts special emphasis on new ways of learning, art and physical education and collaboration. The building supports these ideas by creating places for interaction of various scales and atmospheres.
