Young children in the city are always farther and farther away from nature. This distance is not only spatial but also time. There is an unspoiled grove inside the park, which is the source of inspiration for the entire design. We hope to bring a bigger forest to children through design, and hope to convey a simple truth in a simple way: we are from nature, so we need to be closer and care for nature.

The project is the first kindergarten opened by an education group in Beijing. The site is located on the north side of a park. As a group's first kindergarten project in the field of early childhood education, the owners have high expectations and positioning, and strive to become a landmark boutique project within the region.
Due to the special nature of the kindergarten enrollment time, the design and construction cycle are very tense. From the time the designer got the design task, we immediately launched a detailed investigation and investigation. The project is a renovation project, the current situation includes an outdoor open space bordering the park, and a four-storey European villa. In first-tier cities where land resources are extremely tense, kindergartens of this type have gradually become mainstream trends. The owner asked the designer to completely renovate the landscape, interior and building facades, to meet the teaching requirements of at least 12 classes, and to organize an outdoor playground that satisfies all functions in a small open space.
After understanding the requirements of the owners and analyzing the space of the venue, we have sorted out the two core problems of the project. First, under the condition that the indoor and outdoor venues are very limited, how to divide the space reasonably and realize all the functions. At the same time, the demand must ensure the quality and characteristics of the space. Secondly, the project location is at the end of the road. The location conditions are not particularly good. In the face of fierce competition, how to save time and engineering cost through design, while ensuring the quality of the project allows the project to The surrounding area class stands out.
After team discussion and brainstorming, we chose “Nature NATURE” as the entry point for the project theme, which was inspired by the large green plants in the park on the south side of the project, and even some trees grew into the project plot. . Although it is impossible to move them all indoors, we can create a natural atmosphere to the maximum extent possible. Kindergarten is the first public space that children are exposed to during their growth. The scale of the space, the flexibility of use, and the indoor scenes and atmosphere have a great influence on the feelings and cognition of young children. Design should stimulate children's interest in exploration and learning, while giving them a sense of security, a sense of home, and "natural" is the best carrier and medium. We hope to bring a bigger forest to the children through design, and convey a truth: we are from nature, so we need to be closer and care for nature.
In terms of specific design, we design the axis with age and floor. The abstraction of natural elements is like the law of children's thinking development, from figuration to abstraction, from surface to essence. The color change brought by the change of the four seasons becomes the main color of different floors in the space, and the natural color is rich but not impetuous, simple but not simple.
The layer of color and shape is closer to the original nature, and the second layer extracts a circular shape through the simple evolution of the natural shape, reflecting the child's simplest association with things. The three layers further abstract the circle, extracting the geometric chamfer shape with straight lines, reflecting the children's understanding of the shape of the matter more logical thinking, interpreting the changes of growth.
The four-story multi-purpose classroom, all classrooms are centered around the central activity area, and the central activity area is like a grand jungle party.
通过对自然元素的巧妙运用， 我们希望从色彩和造型、气味、甚至触感等不同的维度去引导小孩子进行探索， 激发他们的灵感。
Through the clever use of natural elements, we hope to guide children to explore and inspire them from different dimensions such as color and shape, smell and even touch.
Nature means openness and freedom. The partition wall will make space confined and closed. How to solve the contradiction between function and we want to express the conception? In order to solve this contradiction, and also to create a lively and lively atmosphere, we Choose to dig a seemingly random but carefully calculated hole in the wall. The spaces enclosed by these holes are more open and free, while enhancing the daylighting of the space. These hole size modules are based on the human body scale of adults and young children. Different windows and solid walls and hole shapes are combined in various ways, taking into account the needs of adults for safe observation, and taking into account the line-of-sight relationship of children during activities. Through these holes, they can see "the story that is quietly happening in nature." Children can also traverse them at will, just like opening a grass, as if entering a tree hole...
The building area cannot be increased, and all functions must be met. The most effective way is to increase the efficiency of space use, integrate similar space, and tap the potential of space in the layer. For this reason, we have made many innovative designs. .
1. We combine the functions of the corridor and the corner of the activity area into one. The corridors of traditional kindergartens tend to be more regular. In addition to being a traffic stream, they are only accompanied by some display functions. Combining these two functions, the corridor and the classroom wall are subjected to rhythmic advance and retreat processing. This ingenious combination makes the space richer and more rhythmic, in order to create the deep jungle effect, various natural The elements are cleverly combined, looming trees, animals of different shapes, interactive corners... Through this kind of point scene plus moderate whitening, we hope to stimulate children's imagination And creativity.
2, the use of drawer-style step sleeping area and compartment loft sleeping area, fully exploit the advantages of indoor space layer height, this treatment can make the space of the sleeping area reuse, do not need to sleep when you can do the activity area, and exempt The trouble of the teacher moving the bed back and forth. However, the loft sandwich scheme has encountered a lot of troubles in implementation. Teachers generally believe that the mezzanine children's activity space utilization efficiency is too low, and the activity space is too small. Not conducive to normal course teaching. Because the bedroom is upstairs, it will be very inconvenient to look after the children. At the same time, according to the management requirements and building codes, the toilet should also be set up in the mezzanine. Of course, the most troublesome is the fire approval. This gray area is not clearly defined. Even so, we are still doing a few mezzanine activity unit modules under pressure, because this design is more interesting and fresh for children, and the safety is completely guaranteed.
The outdoor "stolen forest" from the park is naturally the core of landscape design. We hope that this green will penetrate into all corners of the park as much as possible. We will connect them with the original plants by newly planting some trees. One piece, so that the wall dissolves in the green and no longer exists. The kindergarten is like being in the jungle. The various outdoor equipment and functional corners are organically scattered among the trees. There are two large substation boxes that can't be removed outside. After the designer's original treatment, we turned it into a "big monster" trapped in the hedge. At the end of the outdoors, the designer made a lot of micro terrain. The treatment, micro-topography blocks the children's sight in a clever way, and makes the outdoor space seem to have no margins. At the same time, the child's thoughts extend along the terrain to the far side without margin.
