This project is mainly intend to find the new perception of playing space that should give more opportunity for the kids to use the space up to their imagination.

It also need to be an attractive shape so that it can draw the attention from kids. As a result the freeform masses come to answer all of these requirements with the curve walls that define the room create an unmeasured space where the unexpected activities always happen.

The clear glass curve walls acting like thin layers that separate softly between learning space inside and playing space outside in order to get the kids closely to the nature environment.

About the massing this building simply made by superimpose the two freeform masses and then twist them to create overlapping part which cantilever above, that make the big shade approach any kids to the main entrance.

    Looks more like a corporate building than a building wher kids are animated to play….. The “wavy” plan is no compensation for interiors with very limited fantasy.

      ….troll? An extremely warm and inviting place for children to learn and play I would say!

        Kop, if this is what you consider great, then you lack fantasy.

    Cars are very important. Black asphalt should be a design element in every kindergarten!
