A cloud landscape decorates the entire day nursery: clouds painted in the wall color in different grades of luster; clouds made up of linoleum and blackboard paints; or clouds of concrete decorate the walls – partly in whiteboard color – as it is used as a information board for the parents. In the cloakroom, the clothes hang on raindrop-shaped hooks. Each child has a fabric bag for storing diapers and change of clothes. Together, the fabric bags form a rainbow.
A small courtyard with a terrace serves as a retreat into nature. In the hallway, there is a rainbow on the wall which transforms itself into a podium and a stage!
A real hightlight of the kindergarten is the kids bathroom. baukind developed exclusively for this project a round washbasin with lots of water play features. kids play here for hours!
