Wolfgang Roth Architekten’s new kindergarten building in Stuttgart, which houses space for the children and staff, features a prefabricated wood façade with light filled interiors to promote learning. In an attempt to bring the children closer to the exterior, the classrooms were designed around internal courtyards. Plus, each of the three larger classrooms have full glazing to flood the rooms with light, and allow the children to see the surroundings. The vertical slating on the exterior creates a more permeable division, giving the overall building a lighter aesthetic.
