Designed for tomorrow's Dreamers and doers
Today’s educational facilities are microcosms of the communities they serve, making space for classrooms, offices, hands-on training and medical services. Our architects bring that real-world environment into their designs, creating classrooms that reflect the spaces students will inhabit post-graduation.
Hoefer Welker’s architects bring decades of experience in education design to each project. Our education team leverages its backgrounds in a range of different markets, from healthcare and mixed-use to retail and corporate offices, to create dynamic, interactive venues for the next generation of dreamers, doers, makers and movers.
Our approach to education architecture
Our education team is known for its collaborative, open work style. Our education architects partner with school districts, universities, medical schools – and other firms – merging decades of education expertise with real-world practice to design dynamic, interactive facilities that prepare students for life beyond the classroom.
At Hoefer Welker, sustainability isn’t something we do. It’s who we are. Our architects bring that passion, expertise and experience in sustainable practices to every education design, whether it’s developing a cost-benefit analysis or helping a facility become LEED certified.
