The Arkie Early Learning Space
Arkie Early Education Centre is purpose-built and designed in partnership with architects, engineers and consultants, who place the needs of the child at the centre of the design.
We collaborated with an installation artist to create beautiful installations in every classroom designed to tend to the imagination of a young child. Our objective was to create calm yet playful spaces that were a little fantastical whilst still highly sophisticated for adults.
Each room, was allocated its own motif, which formed the narrative, treatment and palette for each space. Our direction was inspired by the earthy tones of the established greenery in our local area. It was important that every room had its own character and sense of arrival.
Wherever possible we minimise artificial lighting and make use of natural daylight. We champion the outdoors and try to make use of our spacious outdoor areas as much as possible for learning and play.
