A Classroom for Every Student by AIA CAE
In today’s world, it has become crucial to design for healing and wellness for young students. They need educational spaces where they feel safe, welcomed, nurtured, and respected. This classroom design uses color contrast for intuitive wayfinding and to spatially identify its five unique spaces: four focused zones of emotional and social experiences surrounding a nature-driven central communal gathering area.
Each zone has a unique theme to foster inclusive and individual student growth: relaxation, connection, joy, and hope. These focused environments allow young learners of all types and abilities flexibility in their school day, giving them ownership of their education and activities. The furniture and spatial elements were curated to highlight moments of peace, comfort, fun, healing, and community.
A hands-on, Montessori approach encourages students to self-explore and develop a sense of agency over both their environment and minds. This classroom’s program and design focus on wellness gives students support in their search for solutions, to develop meaningful relationships with others and their world, and to create a more empathetic future for learners.
EDspaces learning environments serve as vehicles for experimentation with education sessions taking place in classrooms designed by top architects, designers, and manufacturers. This gives you first-hand experience in modern approaches to teaching and learning through innovation in planning, design, and products.

A safe learning environment goes beyond the classroom; it’s the intangible space that supports students in the pursuit of knowledge, inspires curiosity, and makes them feel empowered to participate in class.
