Text description provided by the architects. The two-storey new build is located next to a green area on the inner-city grounds of the Beiersdorf AG in Hamburg-Eimsbüttel. The extremely compact rectangular structure is arranged around a central, two-storey multi-purpose room, which functions as a play area and gathering space. The inspiration for the design came from the history of the Beiersdorf AG in that the kindergarten resembles an abstract version of an apothecary cabinet. Featuring a shelf-like structure, the facade caters for a variety of functions and requirements and, at the same time, creates a light and transparent atmosphere indoors. The large window formats provide perfect conditions for play and educational work.

The inserted coloured frames shape and structure the facade on the outside and offer the children a sense of direction and a way of identifying with their group. On the inside, the frames are accessible and supplement the play area with exciting elements: platforms, boxes, spaces to sit, climb and play, designed to stimulate the children’s creativity and imagination.
