This is a nursery project located in a high-rise building in Guangzhou. In order to break the environmental constraints, the designer pays great attention to the openness of the overall layout of the space and the configuration of plants.
For example, we designed concrete walls that abandoned the traditional capping to the ceiling, and used low walls and glass partitions to reduce the sense of oppression; by placing real green plants indoors and making large flower beds on the balconies, we let children feel from the urban building. And experience green, learn nature.
The classroom is divided into regional modules with low walls, which can be used flexibly according to the number of classes, age, courses and other situations.
The height of the wall just blocks the children's view from above, and the corner space allows children to find a "mini home" where they can play with peace of mind.
At the same time, teachers can easily observe the situation in each classroom, and can "break through the boundaries" to achieve linked teaching according to teaching needs. The design concept of the kitchen is "visible display", which not only arouses children's interest in food and cooking process, but also makes parents feel at ease and assured of the catering in the park.
