How can we consult you if we want to build a school?

Montessori Architecture experts Benjamin Stæhli and Steve Lawrence answer this month's questions:

One of the prime objectives of the Design Instrument is the empowerment of local educators and Montessori architects. In the ‘Repertoire’ part, future clients will find a growing network of creators providing a variety of beautiful Children’s Houses and schools for different cultural and environmental situations.

In addition, we are happy to announce, that together with the launch of the website,, we offer a consulting service for all questions related to the design and planning of educational spaces.

On demand, we give lectures and courses, evaluate existing kindergartens and schools, review plans, provide recommendations for future development or—if you want to build a school—connect with suitable architects.
