Rumah Bermain Padi is a preschool/kindergarten located in Bandung, Indonesia, that runs based on the Montessori system.
Montessori is a child-centred educational approach that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. The special characteristic of the Montessori method is the toys and props of Montessori, and how children have freedom movement within the classroom.
The overall concept of this project is optimizing children’s concentration in the learning process with the result as seen in the choice of materials and colours. Most of the furniture functions as built-in storage, and the rest is loose furniture that can be moved & stacked easily. What makes this design different is the zoning of every area that reduces permanent divider, so it can make one area to another open without separation. This is the answer to the needs of children’s freedom movement within the classroom.
