    It´s not a ludic space…

    and what a horrible green, looks like the kids vomit in the wall.

    Lovely interiors: colorful, spacious, and well lit The brief was for contrasts and the architects have done an admirable job.

  • nick

    boring and bland – so not interesting

  • jed_

    i love that green but i find it a little uninspiring, to be honest.

  • M!

    hello edward!
    Did you see the same pictures as I?

    I see: gray floor, white walls and a “nice” green….

    It´s a space for kids to play. Not a hospital!

    You vill play now schwein hundt, or you will be punished.

  • Well, let ask the kids. Sometime imagination doesn’t need a super-colorful space, y’all.

    What I think this place lacks are niches and corners. Children like to “hide” around. They like being “embraced” and hardly any of them are claustrophobic.

    To M!,
    Gray floor? Looks green to me. I see the space as allowing the toys ie the play furniture to predominate. These can be replaced when necessary.

    even the crab looks sad…

  • vico

    the gig is up. It’s just as inappropriate inside as outside.

  • c’est cool! J’aime bien
