“The Classroom Environment is a Third Teacher - Malaguzzi ”

A unique project in Tamra, one of the Arab cities in Israel is an inspiring collaboration between a visionary principal and our studio.

The area designated for First Grade students was designed to meet the needs of the 21st century classroom. A special focus was paid to create an innovative learning environment that softens the transition from Kindergarten to First Grade. Defined by different themes, the 130 m² space was organized into different study areas, each incorporating graphic elements of traditional ornamentation with a contemporary modern design language. The inspiration for the space derived from the embroidery of traditional dresses alongside the skyline of the city of Tamra. The complex was created reflecting an environmentally friendly design, while promoting a diverse yet enjoyable learning experience. The project reflects our studio's design belief in the power of education to change and influence.
