Dangerous School is a school like no other. With space for three hundred students, Dangerous School has been designed to inspire and challenge students setting out on their learning journey. The school features a mix of traditional classrooms, open collaboration spaces and lecture halls, all designed to create a dynamic and engaging learning environment.
Tell us briefly about the environment you’ve been working on?
I choose education because I wanted to address some of the problems that schools face, like boredom and skipping classes. When I thought about a school that inspires and challenges kids, I wanted to create the sensation of studying in a space like Hogwarts, which is a dangerous and adventurous place. These kinds of environoments require children to take responsibility and to take on challenges. With the Dangerous School design, I hope to make them understand that challenges help us grow. I hope that kids can grow together with the school as the background.
What was the biggest challenge for you during the design process?
How did you incorporate BAUX products into your design?
How is your design connected to the future of wellbeing?
To compliment this unique design, BAUX products have been used classrooms, corridors and open collaboration spaces to enhance acoustics and reduce noise. The BAUX designs add colour and texture to create a comfortable and inspiring environment for students. BAUX designs have also been used on the exterior to give the building a creative aesthetic.
BAUX products used: Acoustic Pulp. Acoustic Wood Wool Tiles. Acoustic Wood Wool Panels. Acoustic Flexfelt Floor Dividers.
