Guan Governmental Kindergarten contains 30 classes with overall 800 children from age 3-6. The concept was setup by a basic hexagon/honeycomb shaped classroom modules which are then aggregated into 3 major zones to form an internal courtyard. In the center of the courtyard 3 shared common playrooms are located creating a very flexible programmatic arrangement. The overall hexagon modulated organization provides a safe environment for kids play in. As well as creating a spatially interesting arrangement, allowing for views from different levels, interaction between different age groups, and an overall stimulating space for children to learn and grow.
