Stockholm • 11-12 MAY
Sjötorget Kindergarten by Rotstein Arkitekter
11-12 May 2022
IE Tower: P.º de la Castellana, 259E (Torre Caleido) 28046 Madrid
Located in Stockholm, Sjötorget kindergarten by Rotstein Arkitekter is bursting with colour. The architects say they envisioned a playful environment that would play its part in encouraging and inspiring the creativity of children.
Yellow is used in the common areas , whereas various departments have their own specific colour such as pink, blue or green. The eye-catcher of the interior is the yellow play hut that also serves as a lookout tower with a view of the staircase. These wide stairs provide the children with an additional play area underneath: a secret hideout.
Sjötorget is part of a new residential block designed by the same architect.
