Lotus Terrace Kindergarten
Yunchao Xu/Atelier Apeiron/SZAD
The main building consists of classroom units on the south side and service units on the north side. In the middle is a visually transparent multifunctional public space, as the main street of the community. On the ground floor, the central gallery, concert hall, 30-meter running track, and 25-meter water tank with sandpit are connected into an open teaching space of Art, Music, PE and Handcraft classes. The central hall on the second and third floors is a flowing space full of sunlight and natural wind. There are four view frame spaces facing the surrounding green landscape, which serve as the extension space of classrooms. It is very interesting that teachers and students seem to spend more time in these spaces, running, chasing, singing, and playing games.
