Nipiaki Agogi - Kindergarten

PROPLUSMA ARCHITECTS as Architects

Located in the northern suburbs of Athens, the imposing stone-built edifice that accommodates the Kindergarten Nipiaki Agogi, was recently renovated by the Athens based Architectural firm PROPLUSMA ARCHITECTS. In view of the distinct historical identity of the building, which still stands as a prolific example of the iconic architectural style of the Greek interwar period (originally designed by the distinguished Architect N. Zoumpoulidis), the main intention of PROPLUSMA ARCHITECTS was to highlight the particular morphological elements of the kindergarten's premises, by creating a bold and contemporary design for the building’s interior spaces. 


To cite a recent interview of the project’s leading architects, Eugenia Manta and Michail Provelengios: “Designing for children aged 2-6 years old can be quite a challenging task. We wanted to create a space that will embrace the children and allow them a great deal of spaciousness and flexibility in their movement, also by keeping up with their specific needs and various activities”.


On the basis of the above, the outcome of the project proved to be a sui generis, highly detail-oriented design that showed considerable alertness and sensitivity for the children, by also creating an environment which is comfortable and joyful, while at the same time being adjusted to all necessary safety and hygiene standards.


Indeed, a strong presence of artistic vein combined with a vibrant palette of colors is evident throughout the kindergarten’s interior spaces, thus creating a vigorous environment that triggers the eye and stimulates every child’s imagination.

Such a transformable spatial experience makes you feel like a child once again…
