Architecture & Allied Arts
|Abstract:||My project was aimed to bring some more colour into Amsterdam and at the same time create a space where children would enjoy staying at during the day where the building itself would captivate he children’s imagination. One of the key things I wanted to do was to replicate the idea of a kaleidoscope and integrate it into the building through the use of colours and shapes. I also wanted to maintain the essence of traditional Dutch architecture, which was achieved through a flat façade and numerous long narrow windows. This was done so that the initial design in Dutch architecture would be maintained throughout the years even when everything begins to change. I also wanted to give back to the environment, which was achieved by having a garden within the children, which would reduce the carbon footprint of the building. By placing a slide beside the main staircase I was able to convert the building into a sort of playground, which would make the children more comfortable to, spent the day there and also have something to do.|
