We performed the design for a nursery school. Each room features a colorful space with a theme that communicates the energy of nature. For example, the common hall is a "lake room", the 1-year-olds’ room a "cherry blossom room", the 2-year-olds’ a "stratum room", the 3-year-olds’ a "flower room", the 4-year-olds’ a "sky room", and the 5-year-olds’ a "forest room". Colors representing the flow of water, gorgeous cherry blossoms and flowers, stratified soil, blue skies and moving clouds, green gradations of trees, etc., are used to create vibrant palettes symbolizing natural phenomena.
