Hello BABY Children’s Center

  • area / size 5,511 sqft
  • Completed 2020
  • Location Dnipro, Ukraine,
  • SVOYA studio designed Hello BABY Children’s Center on the first floor of a residential complex in the central part of Dnipro, Ukraine.

    Initially, the architects of SVOYA STUDIO had the task to design a new additional space for the existing center with their own identity. In the process, the name and branding were developed anew by Alexander Sidorenko, according to a new design concept. The children’s center, with an area of 517 m2, includes the following groups of rooms:

    The entrance group combines a reception, a mini-coffee house and a store of themed products. From this space there is an exit to a corridor that runs through the entire center. This disposition provides for the prospect of expanding the space. The corridor has a game function and is equipped with stylized seating. From the reception you can immediately get to the gym (as well as the entrance to it is provided from the changing rooms). The gym works for both children’s audience and for parents’ classes, having a separate adult locker room with showers. The office for administration and teachers is also located as close as possible to the entrance area. The club has several bathrooms, 3 large classrooms, 3 rooms for individual lessons, an administrative and economic block of premises, the music room, and a room for creativity.

    A certain difficulty was represented by sewer risers, or rather their “deficit”, but this issue was successfully resolved. When designing, attention was paid to a convenient scheme of interconnection of premises and transits to them, as well as the possibility of increasing the area of “Hello BABY”.
