Project Description

We performed the design for a nursery school.
We set out to create a space that would promote a variety of uses and encourage children to come up with their own games as they would do in nature by recreating geographical features inspired by nature’s most beautiful assets; its colors and lakes.
Each room features a colorful space with a theme that communicates the energy of nature. For example, the common hall is a "lake room", the 1-year-olds’ room a "cherry blossom room", the 2-year-olds’ a "stratum room", the 3-year-olds’ a "flower room", the 4-year-olds’ a "sky room", and the 5-year-olds’ a "forest room". Colors representing the flow of water, gorgeous cherry blossoms and flowers, stratified soil, blue skies and moving clouds, green gradations of trees, etc., are used to create vibrant palettes symbolizing natural phenomena.
By embedding elements taken from the natural scenery into the rooms, we sought to create a playground that promotes a variety of uses and interactions in the same way the land does and to provide a space where children's sensibilities could be infinitely expanded and their creativity could be aroused.
