Outdoor Learning Space:
"think outside the box"
The CC20 Community Classroom
If your school is looking for additional or temporary classroom space, the CC20 range is a joyous and uplifting alternative to marquees and portacabins. Based on the Community Classroom prototype designed by Glasgow architects O’DonnellBrown, CC20 is an adaptable outdoor learning space that is both sustainable and affordable, with costs comparable to one-term’s marquee hire.
Spaceoasis® is working with O’DonnellBrown to bring CC20 to market in time for the new school year, with installations taking place over the summer break.

Originally designed as part of O’DonnellBrown’s ongoing exploration of architecture as a positive vehicle for learning, CC20 creates a healthy, versatile and fun environment. Standard structural timber sections form a skeletal frame, to which modular components can be added to create seating, shelving, worktops and presentation surfaces. The roof provides shelter and optional side panels roll down to provide additional protection if needed, while allowing soft, diffused light to enter the space. The whole structure can be built from a kit and demounted when required. Spaceoasis® can install the CC20 for you, or you can organise this yourself.
The nature cure
Being in natural surroundings is proven to reduce stress and enhance feelings of wellbeing, something the design team found to be true when working in their studio, The Greenhouse, which has a direct connection with the outdoors. As we seek to heal from the pandemic, providing an environment that harnesses the curative effect of nature could help improve mental wellbeing among students and staff. The CC20 could become a truly special place in which to learn and recover equilibrium.
Learning outdoors not only reduces the risk of virus transmission, it has great light, superior ventilation and it’s good for your mental health to be outside.
CC20 is a place for exploration, collaboration and creativity, rather than direct instruction and worksheets, providing an opportunity to explore new ways of learning and working together.
A long-term answer to an immediate problem
As well as providing a useful and practical solution to the current challenges around capacity in schools, CC20 is an imaginative addition to school estates. Its natural materials and outdoor location encourage creativity and independent thought, while its adaptability makes it suitable for a wide range of school and community uses. Suitable for work and play, your CC20 could become a community asset.
From yoga studio to coffee house and beyond
CC20 was originally conceived as a learning space, but its inherent adaptability means it has applications far beyond the school gate. It would work brilliantly as an outdoor gym or exercise studio, especially for more mindful pursuits such as yoga or Pilates.
Restaurants, bars and coffee shops could use CC20 to expand their outdoor space, adding ambient lighting and loose furniture or upholstery to suit their brand while increasing their capacity.
Retailers could use the CC20 range to create ‘pop-up’ shops near their outlets to increase floor space or create exhibitions of their products. CC20 could also play a role in the public realm by creating outdoor spaces in the community where people can gather safely in a well-ventilated place. Its beauty is in its simplicity and as we develop more modular options, the possibilities for CC20 continue to grow.
