to Our Work
QKA deeply cares about the buildings we design and the educational purpose behind their use.
Good architecture is more than the sum of the materials that make it up. The human experience unfolds within the walls we create; people learn, work and interact in the buildings we design. We take the responsibility that our clients have entrusted us with the utmost sincerity and respect.
Next Generation Learning
School design must reflect today’s differentiated teaching and learning styles. At QKA we long ago departed from traditional self-contained classroom design and continue to push the envelope with flexible, adaptable and collaborative learning environments.
School design affects learning outcomes. From natural light to clean air and access to outdoor spaces, our approach centers around creating sustainable environments that allow those using them to learn to their best ability. We strive to incorporate innovative sustainability strategies into our projects to minimize environmental impacts and ensure health and wellness goals are met.
Communities are at the heart of their schools. Integral to our method is intently listening to teachers, students, administration and community members. We ask questions and work together to create the best possible learning environments.

Inclusive and Equitable School Design
In addition to our commitment to fostering a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce, QKA understands that facilities have played a role in the systemic inequities in our educational system in the past and that they should play a role in addressing them in the future. Recognizing and addressing these inequities is an important part of our assessment, design, planning and engagement process.
