Even adults are impressed by the building, which is designed with built-in slides in a winding staircase and generous play niches.

Just as in many large cities, Seoul, the capital of South Korea, has long felt the need for educational institutions in a good environment. Most kindergartens in the different city districts were built because of lack of space with simple design.

To defuse the current construction situation, the project "Flower + Kindergarten" was completed. The project goal was to find a solution to create a suitable learning environment in unfavorable locations. A typical problem for Seoul.

The building is located in a residential complex on the Yang-je Park, where children can learn and play undisturbed. The architect wanted to involve the surrounding nature in the project. Green areas, open spaces and free naturalness are thus part of the learning process.

The best use of available space allows children to experience a dynamic environment. The hallways alone are different from the usual classrooms. This best possible concept leads to a varied learning atmosphere, in which one can notice the changes in nature every day.
