After exploring Elephant and Castle, I felt that the area would benefit from an ‘After-school Club’ space. I designed a building where children, mainly ages 5 - 10 will be able to visit, alone or with their parents. I wanted a space that would feel like a small street, where the children would be able to participate in group activities together such as art, cooking, indoor sports, as well as providing large amount of outdoor space. But I also wanted quiet areas where the children can do homework, read or rest. The different colour buildings indicates which space is used for what, with colours on the floor to lead the children to whichever area they want to go.
