Igarashi Design Studio has designed a preschool for kids to enjoy learning in the heart of Tokyo

Familiar, a Japanese baby clothes brand, has opened a preschool in Tokyo designed by Igarashi Design Studio. The studio designed both the exterior and the interior for the preschool.

To enhance the aesthetic of the exterior, a stroller parking area has been enclosed in vertical natural wood panels to contrast the pale appearance of the building. Walls are adorned with circular openings, which are used as a communication tool. Children can see what is happening in the adjacent room and kitchen, and part of the wall has a magnet-attachable surface to let children post their drawings.

On the third floor, an atelier space in blue and dark-coloured wood, is provided aiming to create a calm atmosphere to help children concentrate on creative activities. A stump-shape object equipped with bookshelves enables kids to gather around and inside the hollow.

The rooftop of the building is enclosed by a wooden fence in the shape of mountain ridges, where kids can experience the sky and nature in the city centre.
