KD Pre-Primary School
Linksfield, Johannesburg 1,700sqm A new state of the art educational facility, with 19 classrooms, a music room, media centre, performance space, therapy rooms and more. The new KDPPS will cater for close to 500 children, with age-groups ranging from playschool to grade-r (1-6). The architectural concept is inspired by the Reggio Emilio methodology of teaching preschool kids. We have used standardized precast concrete openings in various shapes and sizes to create window openings and hollow columns that mimic children’s block buildings. These contribute to a fascinating play of light and shadows within the building which is an important aspect of the Reggio research.
