A unique educational center promoting imagination and creativity by interior designer Sarit Shani Hay. It spans a cluster of six kindergartens ages 3-6, a play commons, and an empowerment center, where each functions as an independent unit with its own identity, and together they form an educational space offering a friendly, informal environment.

The design theme was inspired by the history of Kfar Shemaryahu, originally an agricultural community, hence the agricultural motifs at the core of the concept. The compound’s title, \”The Seven Species\”, was derived from the bible symbolizing the fertility of the land. Each kindergarten is signified by their names: Olive (Zayit), Palm (Tamar), Pomegranate (Rimon), Wheat (Hita), Fig (Te’ena) and Vine (Gefen). Each distinctive character served as a design code: color scheme, components and graphic motifs.

The lobby design follows a language of an agricultural village, beginning the journey of the child through sculptural amorphous islands on which Lego-like trees tower. The design task was to connect the children to the rustic roots of the place, using basic shapes and raw materials such as plywood and solid wood and is inspired by traditional wooden toys.
