Entry Description

Nested within a three-storey space in Sydney’s Alexandria, Nubo with the meaning of cloud suggests – is hard to pin down with its unlimited potential as a children’s play centre for learning and exploration. The centre emphasizes the concept of ‘pure play’ to make and create – and becomes inclusive for children in their various stages of learning to safely and curiously explore the entire space.

The overall design takes a minimalist approach with a variety of ‘pure play’ spaces, categorized into ‘active’ and ‘passive’ play, including a zone for active play completed with opportunities to slide, climb and hide, playrooms, an extensive children’s library and a café where children can make healthy dishes. Another key element designers have especially considered is how adults are also invited to comfortably accompany their kids - and just to relax and even learn with child-like curiosity.
