Increasing interest in learning spaces is discussed across the fields of architecture, facilities management (FM) and education. This paper is part of an ongoing PhD research that aims to explore the interface between experiential learning (EL) and learning space (LS). Based on Kolb’s framework of learning space, we suggest the concept of thermal, visual and acoustic comfort as a function of experiential learning space. We also suggests the need of exploring indoor environmental conditions of physical learning spaces (e.g. classrooms, laboratories etc) in order to create enhanced conditions for experiential learning in higher education (HE). The importance of EL and LS in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is also presented briefly.
