At BrainSpaces, we plan schools for today and tomorrow that inspire meaningful learning opportunities for all students.
Planning and designing a school can be a daunting task. Conveying the needs of your teachers, students, families and community to the architects is an essential first step. But ensuring that those needs are accurately interpreted and translated into the final building - everything from ceiling clearances to floor finishes to furniture and equipment - is often a larger challenge requiring focus and attention that school personnel don't always have time to offer. Even the best of visions are meaningless unless if not evident in every detail of the final product. As both architects and educators, our team is uniquely suited to advocate for your vision, ensuring accurate interpretations throughout the design and construction processes. As your advocate, we can maintain the design team's focus on what is most important to you, saving you time and energy as you navigate the design and construction processes.
Our work recognizes the balance among all aspects of educating students including student achievement, curriculum, assessments & standards, school leadership, operations & management, staffing, technology, community building, public support, facilities, and the rapidly changing global environment.
Our process includes strategies for decision-making that allocate resources where they will yield maximum educational value.
