Yiwu Machetang Kindergarten

Kindergarten Design

Color melts and diffuses in purity, like the birth of light, where the blazing light dissolves into matter, transforming into a kaleidoscope in the eyes of children. Color, as a unique design element, plays a wordless melody that resonates with children, creating more room for their imagination.
 

Different colors hold different symbolic meanings, allowing them to express their attributes intuitively and abstractly, sparking children's thoughts about them. Designers use colors to write the story of the environment, extending an atmosphere that suits the context and constructing this kindergarten within light and color.
 

Hall

Colors of spring always come lightly

Kindergarten Design

From deep to shallow, warm to cool, colors deconstruct the space into a clearly layered emotional exhibition hall, dissolving the eternal norms and interpreting the vast world in the eyes of children.
 

In the pure and transparent white clouds, a breath of spring breeze brings forth the delicate yellow hues, and the clouds paint the horizon with shades of green. Looking through the delicate watercolors, a faint pink glimmers on the children's cheeks.

Kindergarten Design

The lobby is designed as a boundaryless space harmonizing with nature, where the guests of spring embrace gently. Colors become a watercolor painting of flowing light waves, and children, together with light, shuttle through or pause here to experience the beautiful expectations of innocence, hope, and romance.
 

Wood Workshop

The sunlight at 3 o'clock in the afternoon is yellow

Kindergarten Design

Among all colors, yellow has the highest brightness. In the spectrum of light, only a ray of yellow falls into our eyes. It is clear, bright, and lively, making it the perfect choice to capture children's attention and create three-dimensional vibrancy within the flat space.

Kindergarten Design

A monotonous yellow would not contain the overflowing vitality of the space. By following the specific logic of colors and using geometric color blocks from the same color palette to balance the dynamics and stillness of the space, a sense of order is established in the wood workshop.
 

Sweet and romantic colors shape a story of welcoming sunlight and facing hope. Children draw inspiration from the environment, building the finer details of the story on the woodworking table, transforming spiritual interaction into material expression and giving it a unique life.
 

Activity Room

The dance of flowers and dreams of the deep sea

Colors never exist in isolation; their vitality remains latent until they meet the children's gaze, then their brilliance and mystery come to life and flow freely in the children's imagination.
 

In the activity room, besides the orderly functional layout, the unique use of colors gives the space an artistic texture of dynamic freedom. It is both a fairy dance party in the enchanted forest and a dream that floats in the depths of the ocean. It could also be the mountains tinged with a light golden hue under the setting sun. All of this depends on how children perceive it.
 

When color meets imagination, the space unfolds and becomes a clean canvas for children to pour all their fantastic ideas into, releasing the faint light of artistic enlightenment amid the interplay of lines.
 

Early Education Room

Gentle words from the environment

Kindergarten Design

As the final destination of the journey of light and color, the early education room is a space for the activities of infants and toddlers aged 0-3. In terms of color, besides the simple and natural wood tones and white walls, some soft ice cream colors are added to create a gentler and more peaceful atmosphere, giving babies a sense of security.

Kindergarten Design

Furthermore, the introduction of natural scenery enriches the sensory experience of the space. The transition of natural light conceals the mysteries of the changing seasons, with the fresh green on the treetops in spring and the soft red hues in the evening glow of autumn. They quietly climb up the windows, fall into the children's eyes, and tumble into their warm dreams.
