This kindergarten was aimed specifically at providing children, who are normally not consulted in the design of their environments, a rich architectonic experience.
The site is in an area of historic interest, adjacent to a local park, which allows the use of timber in the construction in contrast to the surrounding masonry. There are four types of windows, adjusted to child heights, which give differentiated daylight in the rooms. The kindergarten houses four playgroups, with a common gathering area and kitchen. Staff areas and art- and crafts rooms are on the upper level.
Good daylighting, minimum south exposure, connection to district heating, high insulation levels and timber construction all contribute to a good energy score.
