"Attempt to bring about an architectural environment for the youth, YOLA Tran Nao was designed with most of the effort put into providing a sense of activeness and modernity.
As usual, white and blue serve as dominant and symbolic colors for the whole structure. Nonetheless, they are used in a more novel way to withdraw the disinterest: give background for colorful hand-drawn pictures or color small yet lively wave patterns.
Along with the mentioned usage, these two hues also surprisingly play a significant role in widening space using visual effect. More specifically, in some classrooms, blue is used to paint half of the walls’ height while the rest and ceiling are in white. As a result, it creates a visual illusion that space is vertically broadened, helping rooms to look more spacious and comfortable.
Last but not least, wooden interiors are utilized to make a significant highlight for the architecture. The extensive use of wooden furniture in conjunction with parquet and wood-look tiles create softness and welcoming spirit to observers. Besides, the bright tone from these interiors also emphasizes the modern look for this design as well as enhances the sense of elegance and friendliness.
