Kinderplay is a children’s play café situated in a new, up-and-coming commercial hub in Taman BDC, Kuching, Sarawak. Situated on the first floor of a typical modern shophouse, the space is spread over 2 adjoining shop-lots to create defined areas for children’s free play, reading, arts & craft as well as an event space to hold private functions. Specifically designed and conceived for children between the 2 – 7 years’ age group, we used this opportunity to explore different ways of creating unique and fun-learning spaces that encouraged children to use their motor skills and hone their curiosities and sensory skills. We started to look at children’s stories as inspirations – such as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – and interpreted the themes from the books into built forms such as the tree house, the library reading nooks and slide. The result is a series of spaces with a continuous theme flowing through aimed at igniting children’s imagination and wonder.
