IMMERSIVE ATELIERS

At Little Em’s, our campus is an wonderland, each cornice designed to achieve a sense of home, safety and security for the children. Our internationally acclaimed design team, 180 Studio, with its head designer and co-author of ‘The Third Teacher’ collaborative book, Trung Le, has shared a vision of architecture that creates a greater sense of belonging and identity for each child, as well as a larger collective sense of community of Little Em’s.

From the very beginning, we wanted to explore the writings of Malaguzzi’s The Hundred Languages of Children and use this declaration as a spatial metaphor to design a child’s learning journey throughout the campus at Little Em’s.

We wanted to leverage space and place and allow the children to build a mindset of personal exploration. To achieve this spatial learning map of wonder, there are unique spatial opportunities close by, and there are other spatial experiences further away from the home classroom that the children can venture beyond to explore. There is an anticipation that the younger children will stay closer to their classroom, whilst the older children will have a greater urge to explore further away from their home classroom. We want these mental boundaries to remain invisible to the children.

Inspired by the short film Power of 10 created by Charles and Ray Eames for IBM, in each building we have designed four distinct spatial themes/stories with just enough spatial personality and potential for children to ask questions and further explore the wonder of their world at different scales. Playing out these spatial themes and scales concept, each classroom in each building has a unique spatial design geared towards this possibility of exploration:

For the ever-curious mind of a Little Em’s child, water is an element that never ceases to amaze. Our Aqua Lab is not only a swimming pool, but it allows our children gathering spaces to play, explore, and experiment with humanity’s greatest source of life and survival.
In Building 2, children are invited to explore at the scale of the terrestrial world. A giant sculpture at the center of the room resembles a butterfly cocoon, and serves as a place for quiet reflection and conversation, while the Da Vinci Wonder Lab is designed as a small greenhouse with the ability to carry out biological experiments and project work.
At Little Em’s, the outdoors are just as important as the indoors. That’s why we designed the Dreamscape, an outdoor play space featuring a giant sailing ship that provides children with boundless opportunities to run, climb, slide and explore. And it’s why we provided additional zones for quiet reflection and community gathering
In Building 3, children get to explore the science of sound. An acoustic dome anchors the learning space here, one that is designed for gathering, storytelling, and sparking questions that connect the physics of space to the formation of sound waves.
In Building 5, children explore the beauty and mystery of light. The Refraction Garden Wonder Lab anchors this space, providing a magical backdrop for everything from storytelling and group work to exploring the physical qualities of light and color.
With its own Little Olympic Track & Field, children of Little Em’s can begin embarking on their curiosity of the sports through an enriched program covering many different types of activities. From basketball to football, lets allow the children to discover their inner-Olympic spirit!
Wrapped seamlessly around our ever-green mango tree, The Observation Deck, with its altitude, allows our children to ‘live’ and ‘breathe’ amongst the trees. It also serves as an observatory deck, overseeing the other spaces such as The Botanical Gardens, to the Sensory PlayGarden … giving the children a wide range of different perspectives to engage their senses.
The Sensory PlayGarden, with its own vegetable patch and an oasis of herbs & spices, is a space where all our children’s senses will be activated as they cultivate and understand the cycle of life from their plantations, from seed to bloom.
In Building 1, children are invited to explore at the scale of the celestial world. In the Cosmos Wonder Lab, they can learn about the constellations. In the Holodeck Wonder Lab, they can access virtual reality technology. And because Building 1 is also the welcoming building for Little Em’s, they can experience the Event Horizon Wonder Lab as a place for community gatherings and performing arts.
