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 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 dialog and concentration.
