Education Environments present unique design challenges, balancing the needs of a range of users and activities, while creating characterful spaces to inspire and enhance the experience of learning. Educational buildings can also be heritage assets requiring careful consultation and negotiation with local authorities and wider stakeholders. Nex are experienced in the retrofitting and adaptive re-use of existing buildings and preserving historic fabric for future generations.
We are experienced in designing the informal learning and social spaces that are central to the needs of contemporary education campuses and life-long learning. Our collaborative design approach facilitates important dialogue with students, staff and broader communities. This allows us to address contemporary educational needs, and design with a focus on user experience and long-term project performance.
