We harness our passion for learning to create vibrant spaces where students and educators thrive.

Enriching Learning Experiences

Ghafari creates learning spaces that foster strong communities and innovative thinking.

As a team of lifelong learners, we have an innate appreciation for the work of educational organizations. We take great care to understand the unique culture of each campus so that we can create a space that enriches it. Our education team has experience across a variety of PreK-12 and higher education environments, from early learning and childcare centers to science laboratories and fine art studios. We tailor spaces to serve each client’s unique mission, while also meeting the essential requirements for safety and security, sustainability and maintainability, and overall functionality. Dynamic and enriching, our learning environments create a sense of belonging and opportunity that inspires students and educators to reach their full potential.
