The compact structure of the Kindergarten is built as a passive energy-house. Due to the well-structured floor plan the object obtains a high level of clarity. The varying colors of the individual classes support the children’s orientation and increase positive identification within the groups.
The serially arranged classrooms can be combined flexibly to create new and variably inhabitable spaces for the children.
Two of the six classrooms and the nursery school are situated on the ground floor, whereas the other four group rooms and the appropriate service rooms are on the first floor.
In combination with the modular expansions the rectangular main rooms offer numerous spatial possibilities: The cave and the gallery jut out as bay windows. Their scale is adapted to the heights of the children. The terraces are situated directly in front of each classroom.
The central auditorium on the ground floor can be enlarged by opening the dining room and the gymnastics room. Specifically arranged voids and interior glazing promote lines of sight throughout the building.
A high-quality green space is accessible through the cloak rooms. Two exits on the first floor are linked by a bridge and are led to the garden by an exterior staircase.
