Transform your space with planning learning spaces in practice

Central to Gratnells purpose is the determined spirit of our MD, Murray Hudson. Murray’s commitment to enhancing learning spaces is reflected in his book, Planning Learning Spaces, a practical guide for Architects, Designers, and School Leaders.

His passion catalysed the inception of The Cambridge Centre for Learning Spaces Innovation, a space for the exchange and discussion of new ideas to advance excellence, innovation and wellbeing in school design and the home of the Planning Learning Spaces in Practice (PLSiP) team. Here Murray works alongside Bhavini Pandya, Project Co-Director of PLSiP, and Terry White, Project Co-Director and Co-Author of PLS.
