This design involves the transformation of a squash court in a Kindergarten in Majorca, and it incorporates a traditional toy concept: the Kaleidoscope. Variables such as external elements, natural light and the children on the move generated a set of effects of light and reflections, so there are modifying the space and creating multiple worlds where children are inside. The main instance that wraps the Kaleidoscope is characterized by its pink hue, color whose relaxed excitement power feelings, making it another element for the creation of this dream-like space that is generated.
