Community Design: Architecture and How it Affects Learning

At Studio Design Group Architects, we deeply appreciate the benefits of good design, and have made it our life’s work to be the most innovative architecture company here in San Luis Obispo. However, the general public has not always understood the strong correlation between solid design and human well-being and performance. Multiple studies have occurred in recent years that validate our long-held beliefs. Today our architects are breaking down the ways architecture and design can positively and negatively affect learning in our students across the county.

A recent study at the University of Salford tracked 751 and 34 different classrooms, and recorded the following variables: spatial organization and flexibility, classroom orientation, natural light, noise, temperature, air quality, and color. The research team ended up determining that classroom layout can affect student’s academic performance by up to 25 percent!
