Try Before You Buy Evaluation

A+DS (Architecture and Design Scotland) worked with Argyll and Bute Council and Campbeltown Grammar to explore and implement ways in which innovative interior design techniques could create new educational settings.


Performance Consultancy were appointed to carry out an evaluation of the space. The main aim was to learn about the effect the space had on teaching and learning, particularly in the context of delivering the Curriculum for Excellence.


A number of different evaluation activities were undertaken including interviews with staff and students, questionnaires, student demonstrations of the space, workshops and detailed lesson reviews from a spatial perspective.


The report highlighted the key findings and made recommendations in the form of lessons learnt for both schools and designers.
