Floral-kindergarten is located in the water town of Limer, Hanover, Germany. Near the kindergarten is a residential planning area and the Leane River. On the other side of the river is the garden and jungle, which retains the original natural area due to the rare development.

Providing a natural and safe learning environment is our primary design philosophy. Children could see different natural landscapes through rooms shaped like petals. This design also brings good light to the interior space. Each teaching space is connected to a multi-functional classroom in the middle. Due to flower form design reduces the length of the corridor and it provides a more open and safe space for kids. There is a circular reading area above the center's active space and there will be plenty of light through the central patio to the house. Bringing sunshine, air and nature into this school is our goal. We also expect this design to extend the integrity of nature and ecology to the next generation.
