Clover House
by MAD

Clover House is the transformation of a two-story home in Aichi-ken, Japan, into a modern kindergarten.

The new design's skin wraps around the original prefab structure like a piece of cloth, blurring the distinction between new and old. The repurposed signature pitched roof creates dynamic interior spaces, complimented by windows of various geometries that create ever-changing shadows that play with the students' curiosity and encourage imagination. The new scheme is playful, and has been built from a child's point of view, bringing to mind a magical cave or a pop-up fort.
