A former fashion studio, this space has been converted into a daycare center. This 1500 sq. ft. space has a small reception area, breastfeeding area, play and dining area, 3 classrooms and one nap room in addition to the pantry and toilet.
We have shifted the entrance to the right so that it is separated from the play area and the outside activities would not disturb the children. The area is functional, with one large reception desk and access to the breastfeeding area.
We have kept it simple and added color through the flooring. The space has been designed free of any obstruction. Hopscotch has been added to the flooring of the passage to activate the space and make it fun and interactive. The color palette has been decided as per IPSAA colors, that is, yellow, orange and purple with a hint of grey for differentiation between spaces.
This is mainly for toddlers with sufficient storage for toys. Added bright-colored playful chairs with neutral wooden tables and cushioned seating in the storage area. We have used partial wooden and glass partitions to avoid any kind of visual disturbance for the kids.
Classroom 2 is a standard space with desks to maximize seating space - a traditional yet effective way of learning.
Another standard space with 4 seater tables and added storage. The arrangement is done in a manner that allows a better teacher to student interaction, improving the learning process.
Fourteen beds have been added to the room with cool colors that lend serenity and tranquility to the space.
