Kreatif Architecture redesigned the existing Head Office building of Hunca Cosmetics and converted it into the Yeni Nesil 2000 Pre-Primary-Secondary Schools compound with a total area of 5.000sqm.

A new and integrative identity is established with the grey brick coating on the façade, and the existing windows dispersed on the façade in several sizes are framed with metal jambs painted in different colours that enhances the horizontal perception of the building.

Child perception is prioritized during the design and planning process while the furniture and colours are chosen in regard the different age groups.

Wet spaces are placed in the middle of the mass and the all the classrooms are distributed on the periphery to benefit from the natural light.

The school, which has an open area of approximately 1.000 m², also has an indoor sports hall of 115 m². The 250m² multi-purpose hall on the top floor is planned with technological infrastructure to meet all the artistic and educational activities of the students.
