Suitable Age:2-6 years old young children
Project Size:29000 square meters
Yihe Kindergarten is located in Shangqiu City, Henan Province, China, a national historical and cultural city and one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization covering a total project area of 29000 square meters.The Cowboy Group design team comprehensively analyzed the demands and backgrounds for this project and insisted on promoting the traditional historical culture with “the Origin of the Yin and Shang Dynasties,” creating a phantasm landscape design to stimulate children’s curiosity and guide them to have the courage to try and explore the unknown. Meanwhile, Cowboy Group also improved the landing design according to the project itself and finally presented a satisfactory answer sheet to the customer.
As Technology Powers become the main strategy of the Chinese economy growth, the Shangqiu City is not only carrying forward its traditional culture but also insists on integrating innovative ideas, planning innovative initiatives and forming innovative experiences in technology development, so as to respond to the call of the state actively.
Before designing and planning the project, the design team of Cowboy Group has a site inspection, measuring the practical planning area and conducting an analysis for site height difference, site microtopography, site construction status and site construction style, so that a perfect customized kindergarten is created.
Appropriate color matching helps the project planning to be more relevant to the theme, allowing children to have an immersive experience. The main color of the overall color matching of this project mainly comes from the color of the starry sky fantasy fairy tale series – blue, and will be embellished with some bright colors to increase the overall brightness. Therefore, the designers set the main colors to be blue, purple and orange, but also have some secondary colors such as green and yellow. Green is mainly the color of green plant elements, and yellow is the color of the surface of plants.
In addition, for the partition planning of the flag-raising platform and the green planting area, the design team of Cowboy Group considers the two elements of light and wind direction in the natural geographical factors, and the elements required by the two zones to select the best site.
