Kangle Kindergarten, Yantai, PRC

MCM designed this kindergarten to be a 21st century children’s learning environment. Designed to both encourage creativity, but also to serve the needs of the community. The kindergarten includes 26 classrooms planned with various themes. There are individual spaces for classrooms, game rooms, office and storage and play areas. In order to create a more flexible school that could be configured for different programs and activities, MCM designed a series of moveable walls that connect different areas and provide for different uses of the space. MCM paid special attention to utilizing various colors and materials to appeal to children, creating a compelling environment that they want to be in.
