Misora Kindergarten

This is a renovation project of a kindergarten.

The theme is not only to make this kindergarten seismic strengthened but also to reproduce it as a New Misora kindergarten

Extending this building, a new wall that would make the kindergarten strongly strengthen are placed.

The colors of the lavatories corresponds to the grade of children so children feel their growth.

Sticking soft cushions in the floors of corridors results in tender spaces for children. Painting the floor of the outdoor corridor in green of grass lands and the ceiling in blue of the sky, children would run happily in the corridor

After the renovation, some children say ‘Our kindergarten became castle!’. Others say ‘What color it would be next time?’, since the finishes and colors had been renewed during summer holiday.

This is an attempt to make new values and spaces for kindergarten by partial renovations under strict restrictions.YDS Architects hope children would grow up healthily and happily in this New Misora Kindergarten.
