From the architect. This new kindergarten is articulated as a square element on the ground floor consisting of three structural walls that support the roof. This faithfully reproduces the shape of the plant. The walls are placed parallel to the urban environment and extend beyond the perimeter of the building.

At first, the building was planned as a simple set of elements made of concrete, but sensing that would become visual blurring with soft tonalities, and lost among the future small buildings. It was decided to highlight the walls through a combination of brightly colored stripes and two shades of gray. This made the building recognizable in this environment without references and giving it a different character for the future integration in the built environment.
