Japanese architects HIBINOSEKKEI and Youji no Shiro created the MK-S Nursery in Yokohama, Japan -- a beautiful and bright space for children that was made inside a destroyed and abandoned shop. Turning something ugly and forgotten into something useful and modern for kids, the new space is a four-classroom nursery and after-school care center.
Restoring the existing interior, the team created a simple interior that puts the children's education first. The exterior has a unique dotted pattern on a dark black canvas to give the impression of the starry night sky. Adding windows in the shape of a classic house adds a pop of whimsy and fun, that allows natural light to flood in and fill each room.
The MK-S Nursery has a well-thought out design that allows children to be themselves comfortable while receiving the best education.
