It's called the Green Zone.
Children that are genuinely troubled, unwell or just needing some time-out can spend time in the Green Zone - where a warm blanket and a cozy ambient lounge Butterfly Sofa bean bag awaits. It’s here that students and teachers can have their own cathartic space away from the white noise. Plugging in headphones into a deep and eclectic music library and browsing e-books can be just what they need to re-charge the batteries.
This is a glimpse of the future of new-age learning design. School libraries are already rapidly changing from soul-less book warehouses to resemble a relaxed digital study environment, more like a boutique café. Creating an atmosphere where students want to be and are fully motivated to learn is the key.
As schools compete as businesses - it may well be the design difference that sets apart your learning centre from the pack.
