Location: Shenzhen, China Client:Shenzhen PlayPlus Educational Company Ltd. Area: 600 sqm
A playful and exciting environment suitable for
implementing this kindergarten’s educational policy was created which focuses
on bringing up children that can think, learn and act independently.
The overall kindergarten space depicts the metaphor of an abstract
“landscape” in which different degrees of openness / scales / heights /
proportions were manipulated and can be experienced to the fullest by the
children to cater their different activity needs for reading / drawing / playing
/ story-telling / class-learning.
Key zones of classrooms / playground / reading corner /
washrooms in timber veneer finishes with pastel colored upholsteries were introduced
to give dynamic, vivid and inspiring learning environments and promote
children’s mutual interactions.
Feature walls of multi-media projections and traditional
chalkboards were juxtaposed to provide flexible and tactile teaching media for
the teachers. Floating logo-inspired “crossed-shaped” featured lights acted as
spatial directory and completed the children’s fantasy of the space.
