Seattle WA, USA
With locations across the United States and the world, Kaplan is a leading provider of English language courses.
The Seattle location’s program includes faculty and administrative offices, eighteen classrooms, a computer lab, and an inviting student lounge which serves as a hub for study sessions, socialization, and the development of friendships that bridge language barriers.
In addition, the design includes a prayer room to support the sensitive religious needs of the school’s culturally diverse students.
Our designers drew on vibrant colors to express Kaplan’s global brand and develop a dynamic environment that engages the school’s population. Painted vertical stripes provide way finding cues for students and faculty while concrete pillars, left untouched, and exposed ceilings underscore the loft-like quality of this historic Seattle building.
Our design for this bustling center fosters cross-cultural exchange and serves as a catalyst for learning.
