Kincang Modern Pre-School in Keqiao, Shaoxing, the kindergarten contains 18 classes with a building area of 16,990 square meters and is designed according to the highest standards of kindergarten architecture in China by LYCS Architecturearchitecture and interior integration. In the face of parents' ever-changing educational philosophy, the designer's thinking was how to break the mold and design a kindergarten that allows children to encounter nature, friendship and knowledge anywhere, anytime. The design revolves around the theme of "exploration" and proposes the concept of "Wizard of Oz": six small houses are placed on a two-story three-dimensional lawn, facing the lake and surrounding the garden, forming a "small village" "around the bonfire". "A "small village" around the campfire. The buildings are arranged along the boundary of the site, forming a wrapped ecological paradise. The building is divided into six small houses of different heights, which are connected on a green base by connecting corridors of different scales, "pulling up the hands" to enclose the natural courtyard of cohesion and safety, forming a three-dimensional open world. The interior design is a deep interpretation of the "Wizard of Oz". When children step into the foyer, they feel like falling into a fantasy forest.
Hangzhou Haishu School of Future Sci-Tech City, located in the Future Tech City area in western Hangzhou, is a comprehensive building project that includes a kindergarten and elementary school, with its architecture and interior designed by LYCS Architecture in an integrated manner. The design is inspired by the language of children's drawings, where the ideal campus is full of friendly scales and joyful streets, and from this we break up the 8,000-square-meter volume into 15 small houses with sloping roofs. The corridors and staircases are not only a connection between classrooms but also a place for students to meet, and the playgrounds and roofs are not only their literal function but also a space for students to communicate. The school serves as a small-scale community in which children build their own sense of community through personal experience.
