This imaginative daycare is the latest installment by Yashar Architects in Tel Aviv as the firm transformed a former Wholesale Market into a whimsical daycare and kindergarten center for children.
The 3,000 square meter facility features a vibrant design which drew inspiration from the site's history as a fresh produce market. The center is filled with loungers and climbing structures shaped as fruits and vegetables and comes equipped with a variety of kid-friendly market stalls and delivery trucks to encourage imaginative play.
A majority of the furniture has been custom-made to include padded areas for toddlers to lounge or read in. The building's interior houses six kindergartens for children ages three to six years and three daycares for infants between the ages of 3 months to three years.
