Education

Educational facilities should be places where students and staff feel safe, motivated, and inspired. At Ambius, we work with schools and universities to provide that peace of mind along with designs that encourage creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.

An educational facility’s interior design has the potential to enhance the students’ growth. When the environment is pleasant, engaging, and aesthetically pleasing, it may even help to attract and retain students and staff. 

We believe wholeheartedly in the benefits of indoor plants and the power of our hygiene services, especially in the education sector. These things, working in tandem, can foster an environment that nurtures and enhances the academic talent in your institution.

Hygiene in schools

In a society preoccupied with health and sanitation, educational institutions are top of mind. Administrators and other industry decision makers find themselves struggling to find the perfect balance between providing a high-quality learning environment and ensuring the safest conditions for students and faculty.  

For parents looking to put their children in school for the first time, hygiene is now a crucial deciding factor. Parents want to be sure their children are safe, so schools must work to demonstrate their commitment to the health and safety of their students. 

By nature, the educational environment necessitates close contact between a large population of staff and students. From primary up through higher education, the conditions allow germs to spread easily and quickly. Estimates show that the average computer mouse has three times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. Computer keyboards are home to many germs as well, especially when many different hands come in contact with these surfaces. Placing hand sanitizer units around your facility can act as a visual cue to encourage hand hygiene. Other high touch points include desks, lecture hall chairs, handrails, and doorknobs. To ensure these surfaces remain as germ-free as possible, consider a regular surface disinfection service.

Maintaining elevated hygiene standards in such a heavily-populated environment can be difficult. Fortunately, Ambius is here to help and give you peace of mind.

Facilitate educational success with biophilic design

In educational settings, students should be encouraged to expand their minds to generate new ideas and explore the vast possibilities of learning. However, the confines of an indoor classroom do not always foster the best environment for aims such as these. Not to mention, children and adolescents are spending more time than ever staring at screens, and an ever-modernizing education system only exacerbates this dependency on technology. With biophilic design, there is great opportunity to enhance the learning environment and provide a balance to screen-gazing.

The nature connection is especially beneficial for younger students, as sensory and motor development are key elements of the educational experience during this time. Incorporating natural elements into the classroom presents new mediums through which these children can learn to interact with each of their five senses.

Any educational institution can benefit from biophilic design, simply due to the stress-relieving and productivity-enhancing properties of plants. Particularly in open-plan classrooms — no matter the age of the students — such layouts can be intriguing for the purpose of encouraging collaboration and freedom of exploration. However, they can also make for a loud and stressful environment. One way to combat this is with natural sounds and patterns that promote creativity and calm.

Green walls in the education sector

Whether you’re looking to bring life to the exterior of a building or searching for ways to change up the design of an interior community space, green walls are the perfect solution. 

In educational environments, students and faculty are often stuck inside for many consecutive hours. Not only does this deprive them of access to the natural world, but it can begin to wear on creativity and inspiration. People crave a connection to nature – this is the idea behind biophilic design. By implementing a green wall into the design of your space, you can bridge the divide between the built and natural environments.  

Here are some of the spectacular benefits green walls bring to schools:

  • Create visual statement
  • Act as natural air-filtration system
  • Help to achieve sustainability certifications (LEED, WELL, Fitwel)
  • Lower energy costs by insulating buildings
  • Reduce noise levels
  • Boost creativity and productivity
  • Relieve stress
