At the Baylor School, Kurani helped leadership rethink classroom design to support a new curriculum of design-thinking.

At Wodonga Middle Years College, Kurani persuaded leadership to repurpose local spaces instead of razing and rebuilding, saving millions of dollars.

At Denver Public Schools, Kurani coached school founders on planning and designing six K-5 schools to make them more suited for personalized learning.

Undeniable improvement

They helped us envision how the built environment can be an integral part of culturally relevant, student-centered school design.

I love how they maximized our space to get the most flexibility, openness, and utility out of our limited amount of space. Kurani is extremely intentional, and I have no doubt you’ll love the space that’s created with them!
