Active Hallway


Hallways often take up to 30% of a school’s spatial footprint, though frequently do not function as a learning space. Consequently, hallways divide and isolate learning spaces, working against many 21st century goals such as collaboration, interdisciplinary approaches, and social & emotional well-being.


An active hallway can turn a problem into an opportunity. Using agile furnishings, interactive surfaces, and small group zones, the hallway becomes a place of gathering and learning. In doing so, active hallways can connect an entire campus and begin the process of converting traditional “cells-and-bells” into learning communities.
