Doesn't that sound like a novel idea?
As quoted from this article from Interior Design. All photos, Interior Design magazine:
For Navarino Dunes, Costa Navarino, a Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide property on the south western coast of Greece, Polyanna Paraskeva + Associates was commissioned to design two children's camps that could promise guests both happy offspring and coveted alone-time. The resulting Cocoon and SandCastle offer day care for kids age 8 months to 4 years and sleeping quarters for 5-to-12-year-olds, respectively. "The idea was to connect with children's imagination and perception of space, to make them feel they're somewhere comfortable and familiar," Polyanna Paraskeva says. That's something she's accomplished at nearly a dozen kindergartens and nurseries on the Greek mainland and the island of Crete. "When I design for children," she continues, "I go back to my own memories."
