Doscovery 1 School\
The welcome that some (but not all) schools offer to guests - a reception window, a label or badge and a wait in a corridor - is very similar to the experience of visiting a prison. By making a space that is social for visitors, with the familiar cues and clues of a family kitchen, including easy seating and newspapers, this New Zealand South Island school has softened its welcome and increased parental engagement and interest. Careful colour coding still differentiates the school (red) from the "waiting" space (blue).
Learning is lovely, wish you were here
