AEI colorizes daniel bonilla arquitectos-designed anglo colombiano school in bogotá

 

local-based AEI arquitectura e interiores has colorized daniel bonilla arquitecto’s omega block building at the anglo colombiano school in bogotá, colombia. its concept is based on a simple premise: learning by doing. this led them to design the library and the extended learning areas of the building, reflecting the latest educational models that take into consideration the new generations and their way of interacting with spaces. this way, they were able to integrate, through the architecture, comfort areas and dynamic spaces that are able to adapt to both study and play scenarios.

AEI arquitectura e interiores’s design showcases a world thought for children where color and geometry set the pace of the space. ‘we seek to innovate in the way students take advantage of a library, understand the new generations and the way they interact with spaces,’ comments marta gallo, managing partner at AEI arquitectura e interiores. ‘the colegio anglo colombiano project has shown us that we can understand the needs of our client in a unique way and that doing what we do with love brings great results,’ she concludes.

blue, green, yellow and red were the colors chosen to fill the different rooms, representing the different hues of the school. some walls are covered in cushions which can be taken out to allow children to sit on the floor or even construct sculpture-like structures. once they finish using them, they can be again stored, creating a pattern and sort of puzzle for them to solve. a set of hanging trees are given a second role as whiteboards, allowing kids to play around them, as well as paint on them.
