The aim of the design is in creating a spacious haven with ample natural light,a melody of interior and exterior spaces.
Created in a simple style that belies it’s complexity, the entrance is emphasized and highlighted with an inclined fabricated stairway blended with the exterior landscape underneath.
Changing the perception that playschools are formal space synonymous with a detached and solitary experience, these interior spaces are open directly into the green outdoor courts presenting a view that instantly refreshes and rejuvenates children.

The internal corridor to the different classrooms are highlighted with Crimson Red Foldable Fabric partitions. These partitions add colour to the spaces keeping in mind it’s main function of providing the privacy for classrooms.
