Cave Space


School buildings are often monolithic and rectangular with no variation in space types or ceiling height, making them ill-suited to the diversity of activities needed to truly learn. One important, and often overlooked, part of learning that is not accommodated in monolithic spaces is quiet, reflective time to process new information, ideas, and sensory experiences.


Cave Spaces created by small, cozy nooks with lower ceilings, soft light, and comfortable seating allow enough space and help create time for individuals or small groups to reflect. Interior and exterior vistas are helpful for reflective time by allowing students to change their focal point.
