At the centre of the interior is the piazza. It is the place of arrival, it widens into a cloakroom and connects the children’s rooms. Here children, parents and educational professionals can meet, exchange ideas and let off steam. The climbing trees invite you to move and play.
The low window parapets allow a smooth transition between the interior and exterior space. The green linoleum floor looks like a lawn and thus confirms the concept of “nature as a place of learning”.
In the paddling pool in the children’s bath, first experiences with the sensory element water can be made. The clear graphic elements form a stimulating colour spectrum in the background. What is happening in the group room right now? Through the peepholes the children can observe the events in the neighbouring rooms and communication is encouraged.
The concept of “nature as a place of learning” is of course also reflected in the facade designed by baukind and the open space. A natural wood cladding on the facade sometimes becomes a panel wall and a seat.
