Public buildings

The kindergarten is designed for four groups, which is externally visible by the four pavilions. They rise as colored cubes out of the basic structure. Modern resistant materials are used for energy conservation, creating resistance and emphasize the special of the place. The building itself as a low energy project, thermally insulated timber façade as well as photovoltaic and solar panels on the roof as a pioneering structure for energy supply and pedagogical teaching example.The theme of linguistic integration is applied to the design, by unite Italian and German language kindergarten groups in one building. To achieve this goal the creation of flowing transitions was most important. One pavilion per group is provided, which contains an individual group and relaxation room, but the corridors between the group rooms are so generously dimensioned that they invite the children to create cross-language play areas for all groups. In addition all children use the same outdoor area, multi-purpose hall and the same entrance to the building.
