Floral-kindergarten is located in the water town of Limer, Hanover, Germany. Near the kindergarten is a residential planning area and the Leane River. On the other side of the river is the garden and jungle, which retains the original natural area due to the rare development.
Providing a natural and safe learning environment is our primary design philosophy. Children could see different natural landscapes through rooms shaped like petals. This design also brings good light to the interior space. Each teaching space is connected to a multi-functional classroom in the middle. Due to flower form design reduces the length of the corridor and it provides a more open and safe space for kids. There is a circular reading area above the center's active space and there will be plenty of light through the central patio to the house.
The space on the second floor is a multi-functional area. The patio of the ring active space enhances the interactivity and light transmission of the vertical space. Completely separated from the teaching area, not only to ensure the quality of the classroom, but also to allow children to have a play space to play indoors. This is an important space design for Hanover, which is often raining.
Bringing sunshine, air and nature into this school is our goal. We also expect this design to extend the integrity of nature and ecology to the next generation. It also gives the next generation of homeowners more opportunities to learn how to coexist with the planet.
The main materials of the building are recycled wood and CLT. Thus, the burden of building on the environment is reduced. In addition to the roof there are also parts of solar panels and plants to achieve purifying air and electricity supply.A curved design and a large number of green plants are used on the roof to achieve a more comprehensive concept of a green kindergarten.
