Sunflower Kindergarten

Best Implemented Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
In the case of Sunflower Kindergarten (Hanoi, Vietnam), the land has been distorted – trapezoidal terrain, a narrow area with 3 sides being shielded by high-rise buildings. The design has arranged a long central building block with classroom and administrative functions, facing to the south to optimize natural lighting, micro climate organization, safety. All the main classroom is organized in a square space, helping minimize the distance from the main classroom space to the auxiliary spaces and simultaneously helping teachers better handle when trouble occurs. To optimize the functional space for learning and physical activities, the architect has organized the structure of «Movement Tower» with a spiral circular structure, narrower at the top with the roof cover on the top and natural greenery in the core space. It is also connected fluently to the main classroom block by the long steel bridge structure. The Movement Tower helps increase approximately 3 times the physical space area.
