"form follows energy & light" - the simple organized plan serves all spaces for the children towards the garden in the south, the corridor in the middle gets daylight from three "e³- skylights" on the roof of the building: light and fresh air gets into the house, photovoltaic panels gain solar power for the institution.

"Genius loci" - anchoring on site. the choice of materials follows the specific landscaped surrounding: handmade plastered gardenwalls are organizing the ground floor, wooden boxes on level of the surrounding trees form the upper floorplan. The arbor-like made facade relates more to garden houses than to the solid formed building-environment.
