"One of the many things that attracted me to NAC Architecture is their acknowledgement of the important role physical space plays in the creation of an educational experience for students and teachers. Recognizing that physical space should be considered with the same intentionality and purposefulness as curriculum design or instructional practice, it's been an incredible journey working with our designers to create inspirational spaces that support the whole learner."
