There are also some additional pathways inside the building. Those pathways are not only perfect for the vertical circulation in the building also providing the kids some fun spaces. The pathways are cutting the building interior with different angles and colors.
The pathways are not only decorated with one color but also some colors like red and yellow. Each pathway has its own function for the children. Children can choose any pathways that they want to explore their own attention and interest.
Basically, the newly refurbished interior of Soyoo Joyful Growth Center has the same color pallet. This color pallet allows an easy orientation in the building too. The application of this color pallet is not limited to the wall only but also used from the ground up to the ceiling.
World Orientation and Geography Area
Children also can learn about the geography and world orientation in a special area. This area is located on the second floor of the building and it is kind of a huge area. The floor is a wooden floor with some purple color accents on recent spots.
Soyoo Joyful Growth Center has the best-refurbished interior ever. The interior is so modern with the large space and even the clear glass wall in some areas. The lights come not only from the lamps but also from the colorful decoration around the ceiling.
The application of some colorful strings on the limited pallet spans from the roof to the ground inside the building. It makes a secondary facade with double layers and makes an area between the existing volume and the outside. The lights can easily penetrate into the building through the facade.
Soyoo Joyful Growth Center also has an educational concept based on the international advisor, Sir Ken Robinsons. The advisor is about giving the children a personalized education that should be supported by the environment around them. They can discover and learn things based on their own passions.
