Concept design of a community kindergarten containing 12 classroom for 300 children, ages 3-6 years of age, with an emphasis on cultural and musical development as part of the pedagogic foundation.

Project is organized into a series of classroom pavilion grouping two classrooms, per level and per pavilion. Each pavilion in turn is organized with a private outdoor play terrace. Each of the three-classroom pavilions is distinct with it’s own characteristic, form and façade treatment.

The common pavilion serves as the central point of convergence. It contains music class and library as well as administration at the upper level and serves as the welcome reception area for the daily activity of the school. Its faceted geometry and large cantilever form stretches out to greet the children and welcomes them into the world of learning and play.

The kindergarten is intimate in scale and offers many transparent views to the neighborhood context and to the park to the south. Its abundant exterior playground space offers diverse play activities for each group of children and roof top access is offered as supplementary play space.
