Madrid School Encourages Creativity Through Architectural Design

Rica Studio, a local architect firm in Madrid has designed a two-story linguistic school called English for Fun, that aims to encourage and facilitate children’s creativity and imagination through the design of the building.

English for fun uses a revolutionary method for children of any age or physical ability through their five senses. The building uses this same approach allowing for self-guided play and visual learning with the built environment with thick inhabitable walls that have large nooks with glass barriers that children can play in and see into other classrooms.

Rica Studio was also able to create a generic module for the school’s furniture so that tables, chairs and cabinets are able to fit into the walls when they are not in use allowing for the classroom layout to change with ease.
