The design starts from weaving the new structure and the old construction together, and
then capsulizes the classrooms into the boxes supported by the beams, allowing them to
float in the vertical landscape of play. They are shaping each other as different sides of the
partition. Kids will be able to enjoy these segments of release and playtime in between
the study space where they are more concentrated. During the journey through space,
the existing shell serves as the backdrop of this recreational space with exposed structure.
Two things that drive the development of the interior space are relativity and curiosity.
About relativity, this project uses the differentiation of scale as the tool to divide space. At
the same time, elements in uncommon scale such as giant doors might remind the adults
of their childhood when they were kids, where all the other things were so much bigger
About curiosity, colorful circulation elements run through inside and outside the shell, connecting
the experience of interior and exterior environments. These components create a
series of triggers along the passage, attracting people to explore by stimulating their curiosity.
Imagine when you see a tail of some unknown object from a peak, then you might
have the willingness to step forward a little to check out what is going on, then you find out
that it is a spiral staircase, and it allows you to go outside of the building.
