This is a seismic strengthening and renovation project of a kindergarten.
The theme is not only to make this kindergarten seismic strengthened but also to reproduce it as new Misora kindergarten.
Extending this building, a new wall that would make the kindergarten strongly strengthen are placed. YDS renovates all the lavatories and made them pretty atmosphere. Children feel their growth, since the colors of the lavatories correspond to the grades of children
Sticking soft cushions in the floors of corridors results in tender spaces for children. Painting the floor of the outdoor corridor in green refer to grass land and the ceiling in blue refer to the sky, so that children will run happily in the corridor.
After the renovation some children marvel by saying “Our kindergarten became castle!”, other children wonder by saying “What color it would be next time?”, since the finishes and colors has been renewed during summer holiday.
This is an attempt to make new values and spaces for kindergarten by partial renovations under strict restrictions. The practice hopes children would grow up healthily and happily in this New Misora Kindergarten.
