This inspiring kids school design by Baukind brings the outdoors in for a stimulating environment for learning and playing. The Kita Drachenreiter kindergarten and daycare in Berlin was a former salt sauna before it was turned into a school. Baukind kept these walls intact, introducing a natural element into the space as well as an interesting texture.

One of the other most interesting features of the space are the twisting trees that run vertically throughout the school's rooms. These make the perfect things for the kids to climb on, weave in and out of and hang their coats and backpacks on.

Despite being simple, this kids school design by Baulkind has several surfaces for kids to play on, as well as lots to touch and interact with.
