Saint-Gobain Weber install Design Floors into School of Excellence
The African School for Excellence is a non-profit organisation aimed at revolutionising the face of modern education, and so a fitting environment for the installation of Saint-Gobain Weber Design Floor, to demonstrate how the physical environment can enhance learner experience.
The architects and Saint-Gobain collaborated from the projects early stages of the project, refining the design criteria of this space which, offers greater access to quality education to everyone. The intent was to create a comfortable learning environment to support the Schools education model, one of instructional learning combined with peer-based and self-study learning. The school is located in Access City in Maboneng, a refurbished, mixed occupancy, building in the inner city of Johannesburg. The site embraces collaborative learning with a series of carefully designed spaces that encourage constructive dialogue and concentration.
