Hangzhou No.2 School of Future Sci-Tech City in China by LYCS Architecture

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

Article source: LYCS Architecture

Traditional primary and secondary school planning in modern Chinese cities usually provides students and children with an adult-scale campus environment at an excessively early stage. Such environment gives no help to them in coping with high educational and social pressure. Facing these phenomenon, it is the architects’ responsibility to subversively break these conventions in school planning and offer children with space of their own scale and age in which they will enjoy living and studying.

Clover House in Okazaki, Japan by MAD Architects

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: MAD Architects 

MAD architects have completed their first project in Japan, the Clover House kindergarten. Located in the small town of Okazaki, the school’s setting boasts views of the paddy fields and mountains, characteristic of the Aichi Prefecture. The kindergarten was originally operated out of the old family home of siblings Kentaro and Tamaki Nara, which soon became too small and unfit for expanding their educational goals. The siblings desired to create a modern educational institution where children could feel as comfortable as they do in their own homes, allowing them to grow and learn in a nurturing setting.

We also tried to stimulate children’s imagination by leaving the things like front side and backside of the walls, and even the confliction of the brace structure.

OA Kindergarten in Saitama, Japan by HIBINOSEKKEI + Youji no Shiro

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Article source: HIBINOSEKKEI + Youji no Shiro

As building of kindergarten that welcomes 50th anniversary has not been earthquake resistant sufficiently, an urgent measure was required.

We decided that our main theme is to tell the children “fossil fuel and to use what they can use carefully” from two viewpoints of urgency caused as a result of lack of the earthquake resistance and educational element of the kindergarten, and not by using an approach where a new building is constructed usually but by constructing using a marine container, reinforcing the earthquake resistance by using the existing structure and renovating, we realized a construction in short period, suggested to a sustainable society, reduced large volume of carbon dioxide as well as created an ecological and educational environment for the children.

Kindergarten Jelka in Ljubljana, Slovenia by ARHITEKTURA JURE KOTNIK

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: ARHITEKTURA JURE KOTNIK

Kindergarten Jelka is an extension of a kindergarten in a housing neighbourhood from the sixties in a Slovenia’s capital city Ljubljana. When a new housing complex was built in the vicinity, this kindergarten extension became a necessity. Local authorities have commissioned a local prefab company to build the new annex entirely from wood, also to showcase the adequacy of wooden constructions for the kindergarten use. Building with local wood is not only nature friendly way to create healthy and cosy environment, but it is also a first step to invite the children into the world of sustainable values.

KINDERGARTEN in Brasília, Brazil by ceu arquitetos

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: ceu arquitetos

The project proposes a volumetric “home”, based on the characteristic features of children’s drawings. The goal is to rescue the home of senses: welcome, belonging and familiarity. The student complex, divided into blocks or “houses”, aims to change the concept of school building and become a landscape in its own right, a metaphor for the playhouse or even a small town. The school becomes a symbol for the neighborhood for having a playful feature that differentiates it from other buildings. The warmly of the “houses” invites us to live our dreams, introducing a bit of fantasy to routine life not only of children but of the entire neighborhood; as well as inspire our lives with a little poetry.

KitaF in Berlin, Germany by JAN RÖSLER ARCHITEKTEN

Transformation of a video library to a 750 m2 nursery.

The one storey building of a former video library is – except of one longitudinal side – surrounded by soil. The original floor plan with its polygon shape and its unusual depth turns daylight to the essential aspect of the design concept.

Nursery School Extension in Mantes-la-Ville, France by GRAAL ARCHITECTURE

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: GRAAL ARCHITECTURE 

The design for the extension of the Alliés de Chavannes nursery school draws on its context within the landscape and its integration within the site. The three new volumes that house the extension connect to the longitudinal circulation of the existing building in such a way as to allow them to be perceived as separate pavilions. The existing building is reconfigured to become the school’s spine. Distinguished by two types of metal cladding – galvanized steel and anthracite zinc – the new volumes provide a visible distinction between the original building and its extension. The new volumes are organized to ensure fluidity and a programmatic organization in harmony with the existing functioning of the school, logically inserted between the trees and providing views of the surrounding vegetation. Elevated on steel stilts and with facade openings offering each space a variety of orientations, the extensions allow pupils to imagine that their school is a tree house!
