Architecture & Education: Lessons from 5 School Projects

21 Jun 2022 by Safetyline Jalousie

There is growing appreciation of the significant role that good design can play in education, with increasing evidence that student learning outcomes are closely related to the quality of the environment in which they learn.
 
Factors such as air quality, ventilation, natural lighting, thermal comfort and acoustic performance have been shown to have a profound impact on teacher well-being and student attentiveness, attendance and overall performance.

Aside from developing a building capable of supporting these factors, schools must also be designed with durability and safety in mind due to the wear and tear they will be exposed to over the years. Good design and procurement methods have a significant impact on the quality of the final development and its operation.

Learning lessons from completed schemes is one of the most valuable ways of influencing design and further enabling architecture to support the education process.

Over the past 10 years, Safetyline Jalousie has worked with specifiers and school project teams to deliver louvre windows and ventilation solutions to nearly 500 educational facilities nationwide.
 
Here are 5 examples of Australian schools that have adopted Safetyline Jalousie to help meet their objectives in creating high quality learning environments.
