Froebel Early Learning Centre a conversion of a derelict school building into a bi-lingual early child care centre .The architecture provides a creative approach to interior spaces, combining the functional requirements of a childcare centre with new pedagogies and engaging design.The beautifully detailed two-storey play pod, the intimate nooks and raised platforms prove to be not only spatially and visually aesthetic, but also cleverly turn mere building regulations into fun and functional elements. The varieties of spaces provided create a colourful, warm and light filled atmosphere and are complemented by a natural and playful outdoor space.
Environmental principles, the use of sustainable and natural materials was a key focus of the project. The architect has delivered a highly inspiring, witty and child focussed design and thoughtfully detailed project.
