The idea of the peanut acts as a metaphor for protecting and nurturing young life. Just like the little legume, the Tukusi Nursery School shelters children and provides support before they venture into the world beyond. Clad completely in wood, the material was chosen to expose the children to the elements of the forest. The garden planted outside gives the view a little greenery and a place to play. Taking advantage of design to stimulate young minds, the school uses space and material as a partner in education.
