Frost*’s strategy for the play space offers an opportunity for parents to ‘get things done’ in a time-efficient and pragmatic fashion balanced with the tangible value they can see leaving their children to spend time in the new Nubo space.
Collaborating again with Nubo and architects Joey Ho and Patrick Leung from PAL Design Architects, Urbanite, part of the Frost*collective, designed rooms for investigative scientific learning and a theatre room designed to be a flexible space for physical activity. These spaces were conceived based on Urbanite’s research around the types of play children need to engage in for a complete learning experience.
In the Sensory Room science experiments, investigative learning using microscopes projected onto screens, and exploration through texture using sand and water are encouraged. Sensory experiences and experimental play are facilitated by a large illuminated Corian resin sink, designed to encourage children to create, investigate and explore by mixing colours, liquids, bubbles and ice.
