The Farmhouse Kids Kindergarten is located on a site surrounded by primary & secondary schools, necessitating a provision of a kindergarten within the surrounding area. The site is treated as one big playground of which the built structure forms an integral part. A shed like portal frame covers the classrooms, office and ablution facilities and wraps around the upper playground, forming a big playing courtyard for the youngest toddlers. Skylights adds a playful touch, whereas seating, niches and landings are incorporated into the design to enhance the children’s educational experience. The unmistakable farm style approach introduces a novel design idiom and forms an appropriate response to a brief for pre-schoolers.
