Flowing Promenades 6

Spaces of promenades  would effective concepts when connecting several buildings. In Fujimi Kindergarten, splitting the kindergarten into two buildings is the solution.

YDS intends to express unity of the architecture and flow of spaces by making Engawa spaces of promenades. Placing spaces of Engawa, Japanese traditional half-outdoor space,  between nursery rooms and the garden, the spaces would be ‘Corridors of Light’.

Glasses at the center of the roof over the Engawa create a line of the light which would give spatial axis to the spaces. This axis would guide children, teachers, and visitors to walk around this kindergarten.

These spaces of promenades connect nursery rooms and the play ground and it would unify all the spaces. They softly connect and articulate spaces, the natural environment would be amplified so that it would give lively feelings  to the architecture.

Children would grow up healthy and happily in this vibrant space.
