Aranya Children’s art classroom is designed by odd, which creates a children’s music art space that integrates music, singing, dance performances, art work, and picture books. It contains a casual dining area, three separate piano rooms, a picture book area, and a comprehensive dance studio.
The designer hopes not to give children a world but to create a world with them. Instead of giving children a space with figurative and decorative things, it is innocent to conceive space with infinite imagination. The walls of three originally independent and closed spaces was dismantled maximally. Through the new design language to explore the fun of space forms, the structural solidified wall is hidden in space. At the same time, the fusion creates a variety of rich and exploratory feeling.

The main material of the space is curved wood, creating a warm and natural atmosphere while intervening in children’s scale. An overall space atmosphere is formed by putting in a white continuous suspended curved wall, wrapping the enclosed space, blurring the boundary between independence and opening. The change of the curved wall in the space and the handling of the openings form multiple open and semi-open spaces. The changing wall combined with the facade windows blur the spatial relationship between indoor and outdoor, forming a variety of spatial types and creating an open, free and natural teaching environment.

The independent piano room has soundproofing and sound absorption requirements. On the basis of understanding acoustic systems, integrating acoustic structural components into spatial design language, the new lightweight steel acoustical wall system was used to achieve the thinnest wall. The MLS diffuser integrates with the wall and becomes a spatial façade element.The use of fiber-optic lamps gives a starry sky effect，which was originally only functional perforated sound-absorbing panels.
