The House of the Early Childhood, located in Mayenne, between the city Centre and the new railway station district, is a single level urban building, thought as asoft and welcoming architecture for children & parents, but also for the nurses.

In this way, the building is based on a domestic and hospitable universe: presence of wood outside but also inside, reception and common spaces user-friendly, roof partially built in double slope, omnipresent natural light, generous vegetation…

The garden (800 m2) is an outside room really private and there are four patios that give rhythm to the common spaces.
