The story of this project is the story of every OBJECT that lives in the same space with children.
One of the considerations of the project was the monochrome space – space that becomes ambient and background for what’s going to happen. A problematic aspect was the introduction of black.
The second consideration was one of space for movement and functional organization required by the client’s theme regarding the areas of activities specific to a nursery.
The third consideration was to provoke the curiosity and intelligence of children by arrangement. Not only provide comfort, but also to ask attitude and attention.
Thus were born the objects and furniture that populate the nursery and children living in space. We have assembled several houses for toys and games. Obviously, each of them has stories, flats and roofs. In the attic, for example, teachers can put their stuff. A gardening lot with jardinière and bird houses. The chalkboard – a heart, even though it is black. For the children’s cupboards we have proposed a code – a personal cipher. Children immediately took it without hesitation, but the grownups needed more information in writing.
The court has 3 playgrounds, sand pit with bench, trampoline, climbing wall and a lot of space for running.
