Evergreen International Kindergarten

  • area / size 65,659 sqft
  • Completed 2019
  • Location Shanghai, China,
  • ELTO Consultancy designed a geometric and light filled space to bring creativity and function to Evergreen International Kindergarten in Shanghai, China.

    Designer adopts wood and pale colors scheme in the space. This light combination scheme demonstrates and conveys a message of sustainability and environment-friendly concept and at the same time gives a sense of homely warm feeling. The designer intentionally makes the entire space into a huge toy, by placing a surprising curved slide in the center core of the reception waiting area. With this structure, it promotes children’s curiosity and unearths their unlimited and self initiated exploration mode. Designer also takes children’s perception and feeling into consideration while dealing with design details and concept for the kindergarten. As the slanted window structure being part and parcel of the building, the interior is highly geometrical which challenges the children’s visual experience, while the rooms are arranged with a narrative-inspired twist. We also utilize the building natural phenomenon of sunlight into the interior space to create a sense of peacefulness and coziness.
