This month, millions of children are returning to school across Ontario. Some will be learning online, while others will make their way back into the classroom. We know this isn’t going to be an easy year. To all the teachers, students, and parents – we applaud your dedication to learning.
The built environment plays a huge role in mental and physical well-being. Here are some of the inspired spaces we’ve designed that we hope will make the transition back to school a little easier.
