EAT PLAY (D)WELL: Lunch-time Child Care, Lustenau

The school building was constructed in 1991, but over the years a need arose for a space where pupils could have their lunch and spend time in a relaxed atmosphere, decoupled from the classes. Close to the entrance, an appropriate area was identified, which had originally been intended for a terrace, but then was actually used as a storage room over the years, unheated and neglected. After a thermic restoration and substantial redesign, this space is now a lively School Café, for eating, playing and studying. It contains a comfortable lounge and an outside area for the warm summer months. The furniture of the bar with red brown cement tiling is a subtle reference to the fair faced brickwork of the surrounding place. Blueish walls, soft curtains and generous lighting embed this place in a cosy atmosphere and invite to bide and enjoy the moment among classmates.
