I offer a consultancy service to academic institutions, estates departments, architects, furniture manufacturers and dealers as well as interior designers.
My expertise is in the facilitation and creation of new pedagogically-informed learning spaces. My aim is to not only enhance the experience of students, but also to balance the needs of space, facilities and technology within the challenges of learning and teaching. The offer includes a consultation that explores the pedagogy of space. This knowledge is based on professional practice over the past ten years, along with a Masters research study. The thesis investigated users requirements in order to understand their complex and evolving needs. Five different themes were identified, including the psychological and behavioural implications of furniture and layouts within a learning environment.
