Ineke Hans has designed this playful primary school interior for children with special needs. The educational interior is accented with carved-out wood vignettes that include dinosaurs, bicycles and abstracted trees that create and imaginative landscape for students.

These "curiosity islands" are displayed within the school's hallways where they have been accented with visually interesting displays and bookcases that kids love to explore.

The De Windroos school is an institution in the Netherlands for children with concentration problems. While the school's classrooms are designed to limit stimulation, Ineke Hans's hallway concept becomes an exploration zone for kids who love to learn as they play. The vignettes form their own landscape by abstracting art with natural, animal and human motifs.
