01 Large buildings in small blocks Shanghai Qiantan is the second important CBD in Pudong after Lujiazui Central Business District. At the beginning of the urban design, the land division principle of "small blocks" was followed, and the road network relationship provided a good street interface and traffic organization, and at the same time made the educational land area quite tight. Bingchangtian Kindergarten is located in the Binjiang International Community of Qiantan International Business District, close to the Second Attached High School of Shanghai Qiantan China Normal University. The kindergarten was designed as a very intensive three-story building under the requirements of ensuring outdoor venues and exits.
02The big staircase in a small space We built the atrium space of the kindergarten with a public staircase similar to a large toy scale. The first floor uses a small theater to enlarge the scale, shrinking layer by layer, and finally leads to the roof courtyard on the third floor. The courtyard itself is also the source of natural light in the atrium. This large toy-like staircase guarantees basic transportation functions, and is also an indoor place for children to play hide-and-seek and interact with the teacher. The organic form of his own entanglement also grows from the ground like a living body, extending to a place where it can absorb the sun's rays. 03City scenery on the rooftop In an already extremely compact kindergarten, we released the roof space of the building so that children can have a rooftop where they can move and observe the city they live in. 04Interactive facades inside and outside On the facade of the building, we designed concave-convex windows that only the height of children can penetrate, deliberately to distinguish the scale difference between adult teachers and children, so that children can form a small area where they can interact indoors and outdoors.
