BUILT UP AREA:
A modular structure sans sharp edges to cater to the needs of the young users incorporating various elements such as interactive flooring patterns to play games such as ludo and snakes and ladders along with Gond art on walls.
Schools are spaces where we nurture the innate creativity of young minds. Instead of forcing children to sit inside rigid boxy spaces, we decided to design fun spaces for their imagination to run wild. Our form finding was easy – we wanted to bring to life the countless schools scribbled in artworks by children. The arched entrance, the smooth curves of the roof, the circular windows, the curved walls; are all soft shapes that create an inviting atmosphere ideal for exploration and learning.
Bright colors spark joy in children and we wanted to design a school that children would want to be in, every single day. Flooring that acts as a big ludo game, reminds children and teachers that education can also be ‘fun and games’.
