The design approach adopted for this project can be described as simple. The goal was to create a second skin for the existing space that would not only enhance its aesthetics but also provide a safe and nurturing environment for the students.

To achieve this, wood was chosen as the primary material for the enveloping space. Wood has a warm and welcoming feel, and its natural texture and grain pattern add an element of visual interest to any space. Moreover, wood is a sustainable and renewable material that has a low environmental impact.

The use of wood in the design of the space created a sense of enclosure, providing a secure and comfortable learning environment for the students. The wood also served as an acoustic barrier, absorbing sound and reducing noise levels, which is particularly important in a learning environment.

In addition to its aesthetic and functional qualities, wood is also a durable and robust material that can withstand wear and tear, making it an ideal choice for a high-traffic area such as a school. The use of wood in the design of the space was, therefore, a practical and sustainable choice.
