Clover House Kindergarten in Japan Makes us Want to go Back to School #makereducation
Check out MAD architects’ beautiful Japanese kindergarten, which has been repurposed from its original residential use, featured on designboom.
like a piece of cloth draped over the building’s skeleton, a new skin wraps around the existing wooden structure. the signature pitched roof has been repurposed to create dynamic interior spaces, while recalling the building’s former residential use. both the façade and the roof utilize common soft materials, such as asphalt shingles. these provide waterproofing, while enclosing the entire structure in a sheath of paper-like pieces. a slide descends from the second floor of the building to an outdoor play area, adding to the scheme’s sense of playfulness.
