We have created seven of Aajol’s childcare centers in Pune. We designed the base scheme for Aajol. This scheme of design was customized for the various centers based on location, sizing and demographics. Our scope of work included zoning and layouts, spatial designing, civil changes as needed, furniture, lighting designing and beautification of spaces. The design scheme is based on ‘child-led learning’ principles. Every element has been designed keeping the child’s intuitive learning and growth as the main goal. Biophilic elements are part of the design, nurturing bond of the child with nature. The color palette is neutral, to allow an un-distracting environment for the child’s growth.
