Our learning environments are constantly evolving, especially nowadays where there needs to be constant rethinking of the norm and rapid adaptability. It’s never an easy task to create spaces that evokes creativity, innovation, and curiosity, but there are at least a few fundamental design principles which help to get the carpet rolling.
Today, it doesn’t seem possible to imagine a world without technology which is why so many agree that it’s important to consider integrating technology into learning spaces, including rooms, hallways and even the outdoors to them connected.
Both modulyss and tretford are suitable for computer rooms having anti-staic properties and are a perfect choice to accompany the ever-growing digital dependency. tretford is naturally anti-static meeting IBM & ICL standards for computer installations.
Safety & Security
Whether it’s schools, community hubs or public libraries, it’s essential to incorporate safety and security in the design. Having more open and transparent layout with an emphasis on windows and clear lines of sight, will support in creating the feel of a safer environment and improved learning.
modulyss and tretford carpet have colours and ranges that help create a feeling of comfort and homeyness that could enhance the overall design of a safe place.
