Text description provided by the architects. The kindergarden is a solitary building on a green field. Only paths and walls connect the new building to landscape in order to create a subtle and strong texture of reference points within the site.
The architectural expression of the compact structure can be detected through few basic elements. The shape of the roof with its geometric waves over the entrance and its skylights defines the elevation of the front facade of the building. The kindergarden is composed by four classes and it lives on the dialogue between the interior rooms and exterior spaces. The typology of each class determinate this relationship.
The intention is that children could experiment architecture in a natural and funny way that contribute to their growing. The theme of setting limits in its different varieties guides children in their search for freedom and also privacy. Extroverted and introverted moments alternate in a series defined by the different activities. Horizontal and vertical connections allow the perception of the overall facility from each of its units.
As in a small town, spaces of different size and shape, light, materials and colours determine a rich and the different identities of the space.
