This playful scheme uses translucent polycarbonate to create interesting lighting effects both internally and externally. Based upon the simple idea of a courtyard garden, the proposed scheme provides a protected play area for the children using two main flanks connected by a shaded linking corridor to the North and an open covered structure to the South. The polycarbonate cladding continues to form the boundary across this open structure, allowing the coloured light to wash through into the play area and protecting the courtyard from the roadside.
