Kindergarten Tel Aviv style

At the kindergarten my children attend, the parents’ committee recently spent a vast amount of time and effort to have a new verandah built. In the coming year there are numerous other improvements planned –  small changes, working slowly toward the vision we have for the kindergarten. And yet sometimes I wonder what I would do if presented with a clean slate.

A look at an amazing private kindergarten in Ramat Hasharon, a suburb of Tel Aviv in Israel shows just what can be done when spaces for children are designed from scratch. Instead of a riot of ‘stimulating’ primary colours, architects Lev-Gargir designed the space according to Bauhaus principles (most familiar to residents of Tel Aviv)  – form follows function – to create a magnificent, calm space.

It is without doubt the most stylish ‘home corner’ I have ever seen. The images tell the story.
