Early Child Care

The Australian childcare industry is booming, providing great opportunities for architects, designers and builders to sink their creative teeth into. Children are just learning to navigate and be inspired by the world around them and are highly influenced by their surroundings. This means that the design of a childcare centre requires a delicate balance of a practical and safe space for both the children and their educators.


The Australian government investment in our nation’s schools will increase by 68% over the next 10 years, as 650,000 new students begin their schooling journey. Each state has also pledged extra funding to build new schools and upgrade existing ones. This creates an excellent opportunity for schools to plan, design and create a space that will have a profound impact on the way their students learn and their teachers teach.

Higher Education

For too long, universities have struggled to create interesting, interactive, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing learning spaces. The boring libraries, labs and classrooms do little to encourage learning – instead, they encourage students to run for the hills! Universities are keen to embrace a more active style of learning, where students and teachers interact and collaborate to help increase students’ academic results.
