INSPIRATION:
This nursery is in Yonago, Tottori. Here is surrounded by the rich natural environment, mountain on one side and beautiful beach on the other. However, in the environment of the former nursery, they could not feel nature inside the nursery room, though they live close to nature. Hence, the design concept was created, Feel nature, grow sensitivity. For children to feel nature in daily life, materials are forcused on. Each material is meaningful and are chosen for children.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is a nursery in Yonago, Tottori, Japan. This site is surrounded by rich natural environment. So, The concept that is Feel nature, grow sensitivity was put on the design concept. Many kinds of materials are used in different points of view. Each material is natural, not artificial and children can feel its texture and its story such as the surroundings where they live and the history of their nursery. In these ways, children will grow their sensitivity just while spending a daily life playing.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Toilet space is so unique that children are likely to play here. The partitions of toilets are made of stainless steel, whose looking is like mirror. This design idea is come from the traditional pottery in this area, Kugogama. Then, children get a chance to learn about the local. In addition, the bad image of toilet could be eradicated. Almost children don’t like toilet spaces for its darkness, stink, and scariness. So, it was designed as enjoyable place, as well as bright and clean.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Some designs can encourage children to take more exercise. For example, the metal sign on the floor of the corridor. The corridor surrounds the building and children can run around the building for 100m. On the floor of that corridor, there are sign, such as Start, 100m, and Goal, which are made of different sizes of arrow marks. Looking at it, they will get eager to run. Also, there are so long slide, rock climbing, net climbing inside. By putting these devises, they could get to take more exercise.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult thing is to find the local materials and plasterer who can deal with the traditional and uncommon materials such as mud wall at the entrance and class sign made by made of Yumihama Gasuri, the traditional fabric here. But connecting people and making use of the good local relationship, it could be realized. Overcoming these difficulties, the design are considered truly for children to grow and learn well.

NAME:
HIBINOSEKKEI + Youji no Shiro + KIDS DESIGN LABO

PROFILE:
Main services of 'Youji no Shiro' are designs and surveillances of buildings, renovation and interiors of preschools. We also provide branding consultation services for preschools. 'Youji no Shiro', which means 'The Castle for Children' in Japanese, is the name of a section of an architecture design office, "HIBINOSEKKEI", based in Kanagawa, Japan. The company was founded in 1972 and had launched the section that specialises in the design of spaces for children in 1991, reflecting the rapidly altering social situation. By that time, the declining birth rate had become a serious issue in Japan. With fewer children continuing to develop, we became to think that existing preschool architecture where classrooms of same sizes and shapes were lined up weren't just right. Instead of those characterless architecture, we thought what's needed are spaces that is sincerely considered, designed and built for the people who work there, people in the neighbourhood and, of course, children who use there. Believing that, we had built up more and more work in the field of space design for children. During our 27 years in operation, we have created approximately 520 spaces for children all over Japan. The spaces include newly built architecture, converted architecture, interiors and the like. Recently the area of our service is expanding to the world.
