Kindergarten 2 Birches

Two curved shapes were chosen to accommodate playrooms in order to ensure the optimal lightning conditions throughout the day. Every playroom features 4 ambient corners and is directly connected to the outdoor.

Offices and utility rooms are packed inside a 2 storey volume with basement. Separate entrance directs staff away from parents accompanying children. They have direct access to wardrobe, while a special roof protects them from bad weather.
