Entry Description

We designed a playful and exciting interior of kindergarten We experimented with a landscape design populated with lakes, hills and mountains that would inspire children a variety of uses and fun ways to play by stimulating their imagination. Here, the scenery and relief associated with nature is echoed throughout the space by a cleverly designed stage resembling a hill, furniture representing small mountains, caves or cabins and mirrors reminiscent of the surface of a body of water, while the color gradations of the walls feature a palette evoking the beauty of nature. by placing elements inspired by natural settings throughout the space and creating a landscape that allows for a variety of uses and actions, we aim to create a kindergarten that offers children an unlimited number of opportunities to stimulate their creativity and develop their skills to the fullest.

About Designer

Moriyuki Ochiai, born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1973, is an architect and designer. In 2008, he established his own studio, Moriyuki Ochiai Architects that is active in architectural, interior, furniture,landscape and industrial design. The sources of our inspirations come from being captivated by the vivacious and lively beauty of nature or life. We can also feel the influence coming from the delicate sensitivity responding to the unique Japanese nature, which can be found in Japanese temples and gardens. We wish to continue creating works that fulfill people's dreams, become the energy for their lives, and then move on to a deeper dimension that exceeds life itself.
