The Creché is situated in the municipality of Predmier, in the residential housing area. It forms a closed area together with the adjacent kindergarten, playground and patio. The building was conceived as L-shaped with gable roof, to correlate with the surrounding area while preserving a high level of intimacy. The material selection was done with emphasis on longevity, safety and quality.
The daycare center constitutes a compact structure with partially roofed atrium. The play room and dormitory were “opened” up to the roof and illuminated with a grid of roof windows from the north. In case of unfavorable weather condition the exit from the dormitory to the atrium is roofed.
