青岛万科成长中心旗舰店位于青岛市城阳区万科桃花源社区,是个室内改造项目。待改造建筑为三层独立社区物业,三层将改造为万科成长中心,首层和二层现作为售楼处使用,楼盘销售结束后,也将改造为成长中心及相应的社区配套服务。

作为面向儿童的教育空间,整齐划一的教室过于严肃,而填满卡通造型的空间又太像游乐场所,我们希望能在严谨和童趣之间寻找一种平衡。考虑到儿童自由好动的天性和认知水平,成长中心的设计着力于“共享”和“色彩”两个主题。

dot Architects has designed a new early learning centre for Chinese developer Vanke. The project locates in Qingdao, China. The early learning centre is on the third floor of a former sales gallery. 

As the main users of the educational place will be preschool children, we are looking for something between a classroom and a playroom. Taking their active lifestyles and level of cognition into consideration, the design strategy focuses on creating an open and colourful space.

▼以色彩为主题之一的成长中心,color as one of the design theme

不同类型的学习教室被归入不同的地理自然区,每个主题区以不同色彩的凹龛空间来界定。凹龛空间同时绘有该自然区的标志性动物,在醒目的辨识度之外,也为儿童预留了出入教室的缓冲空间。平面的整体布局采用流畅的曲线,避免出现突然转折的直角,在流动连贯的空间体验之外,也能防止孩子在奔跑中发生碰撞事故。

Classrooms are categorized under different climate regions. Each region is represented with a theme colour and its signature animals. It is a more efficient way for preschoolers to identify the classrooms than usual numbering system.   In order to create continuity in the space and to prevent a potential collision, the plan layout is defined with smooth curves.

▼颜色定义不同空间,functions are defined by different colors

对3-12岁儿童急速发展的智力而言,丰富的社交和非结构性玩耍都是非常重要的,而这些活动需要开敞的不设限的共享空间。在保证教室坪效的基础上,我们最大程度地预留了公共空间。其中开放的绘本区拾级而上自然地形成了一个舞台,舞台上下都是供孩子在课间自由活动的空间,同时也可以作为举办特殊活动的场地。

Although it is still a hypothesis, that social interaction and unstructured play are vital for children’s development.  An open space is required for such activities to happen. A stage is defined as the reading zone instead of a library room. It can be used for free play during classes or as a theatre stage for special events.

台地上的书屋降低了高度,以便创造出一个适宜儿童、让他们有专属感的空间。书屋由模块化的盒子组成,可供放置书籍、绿植和其他展品。孩子们可以自由的挑选绘本,在空地、台阶或者书桌前阅读。落地窗前设置了长桌阅读区,长桌的高度符合儿童坐在椅子上的最佳阅读高度,而家长坐在软垫上视线将会和孩子处在同一高度,这将带来更为亲密平等的亲子阅读体验。

We designed a scaled down children friendly house on top of the stage. The house is enclosed of wooden boxes which can be used to display books, plants or other exhibits. Children can sit and read anywhere, beside the table or on the stairs.

由于南向采光面全部用做教室,为了改善公共空间的采光条件,开设了两个天窗,把自然光照引入室内。在一天之内的不同时段,喇叭口造型的天窗会产生不同的光影效果。传统的教室往往以数字排序划分,而对于偏重形象思维的低龄儿童来说,以色彩来进行教室划分识别度会更好。考虑到3-12岁这个年龄层儿童的兴趣点和认知度,最终决定采用“自然博物馆”的主题。

Two oval shaped skylights are introduced into the space to bring in the natural light, as the south facing windows are occupied by classrooms.

主题区内的教室采用了浅一度的粉彩色,以便塑造安静专注的学习空间。室内家具局部采用主题色彩作为跳色,为空间增加适当的活跃度。在儿童空间的设计中,我们依然采用抽象的几何形式和简洁的空间语言。我们相信再繁复的设计也比不上孩子的想象力,不如多一些留白让他们自由想象。

The interior of the classrooms use the same colour with a lighter shade. The furniture also has some coloured panels to make it more vivid. In designing spaces for children, we prefer abstract geometry and simple visual language. We believe that children’s imaginations are more complex than any designed forms. It is better to design less to create a more imaginative space.

因为立面改造的预算有限,所以采用在原有玻璃幕墙的基础上局部更换彩色印刷玻璃的方法,增强立面的标识性,并和室内的色彩空间相呼应。成长中心的入口空间则通过万科社区商业的VI标识来界定。

As the budget for facade renovation is limited, the original curtain wall is remained with some panels replaced by the coloured ones. The entrance to the learning centre is defined by an illuminated logo.
